I some how forgot to post my last care package! I decided to make an Anniversary themed care package since he was supposed to receive the package only a few days before our first anniversary. I thought it would be fitting since I would have to use paper to decorate it. It turns out they held the package and he still hasn’t gotten to open it yet. But I know he is going to love it when he finally gets to open it! I used a lot of personal touches, like clips from our “thank you” cards, and pictures from the photo booth. Hobby Lobby has a large selection of wedding stickers. If you don’t want to spend the money on the stickers, you can always draw on the paper. I just like the extra touch the stickers give, and scrap booking supplies go on sale at Hobby Lobby all the time. Don’t forget to take your 40% coupon!
