Who better to do a guest post than the one who got me started on craftiness? My Mom (a.k.a. Shela)! She masterfully creates all sorts of things and she has agreed to share one of her secrets with you. And here it is:
Birthday in a Box!
b. wrapping paper
c. cake mix
e. regular clear tape
f. clear packing tape
b. 1 eight pack of Scooby Doo napkins
c. 8 Scooby Doo blowers
d. A Scooby Doo birthday badge
e. 8 rainbow colored cups
f. Bright green plastic table cover
g. Spongy Scooby Doo ball (just for fun)
h. Happy Birthday tiara
i. Number candles
j. Scooby Doo happy birthday banner
This birthday in a box for you
includes a cake & frosting too.
Since we’re not there to share the day,
share it with who’ere you may.
So light the candles, make a wish
5. Pack all of the items inside.
6. Print out your pictures and add a nice note. Include it in the box.
7. With the clear packing tape seal the box well.
8. Add address labels and mail.
Hats of any kind are great because they work well in the pictures. One time I found some Spiderman masks that I had the whole family wear for pictures. It was awesome.
To save money on mailing costs, the US Postal Service offers free flat rate priority mailing boxes at any of their locations. If you choose the right box, you’ll pay one flat rate even if the box weighs more than usual.
