Carol Burrows says:

I recently sent two of my friends a box. I sent: my favorite lip gloss, EOS lip balm, hand made notebook, pretty journal (on sale at Michael’s) shared some beauty samples, a pair of great socks, pretty nail files. I packaged each item including tiny charms tied to the ribbons, hand stamped papers, glassene bags and little kraft boxes. I added some handpainted clothes pins with inspirational quotes I made one day and I slipped pretty pictures of flowers or vintage labels under the ribbons too. Of course a handmade card with a long note was tucked into each happy box . It was so fun to hear how excited they were to receive the boxes! <3
