Send a Valentine's Day Care Package

Send a Valentine's day care package Send a Valentine's day care package Being married to someone from another country we're always away from family in some way so care packages are of utmost importance (remember the Ultimate Care Package?). And because you can pretty much send anything through the mail I got to thinking of all things heart shaped, which lead me to the idea of making a box, which lead me to think of paper mache boxes. I thought they'd be a fixture at Michael's, but turns out they only sell small little 3 inchers so I had to buy one on Amazon. I'm sure it will get a bit of damage in transit, but I don't really care because I think it would be a joy to receive if I do say so myself. Send a Valentine's day care package You will need: paper mache heart box 12" (see link for where I bought mine), paint brushes, acrylic paint (choose your own, but definitely get a white), goodies to fill the care package (conversation hearts are a must!), pencil, eraser, white paint pen
Step 1: Paint the outside of the box pink. Paint inside if you're hard core.
Step 2: Use a pencil and write in simple lettering your phrase.
Step 3: In a darker color, paint on the letters.
Step 4: Use white on the outside of the letters to create a relief. Send a Valentine's day care package Step 5: Do your goody thang. Send a Valentine's day care package Step 6: I used a white paint pen to write on the address onto the other side.  Send a Valentine's day care package I'm kind of stoked to take it to the post office and ship it on it's way. There's a chance it might be cheaper to send it with one of those flat rate boxes, but I'll give it a go this way for ultimate impact. I'll let you know. Paul's brother is in for a treat.
