Stay Well Boxes

Happy Tuesday Friends! With cold and flu season already here (where is 2012 going?!)

I thought that I would share this little gift you can make to help your loved one’s “Stay Healthy.”

Stay Well Kit -

So here’s the run down on what you will need:

Stay Well Kit -

Box (I got this one in the dollar spot at Target)
1 piece of tissue paper
Apple Cider packet
Kleenex Pocket Pack
Fisherman’s Friend Cough Drops
Blistex Cold and Allergy Lip Balm (who knew there was lip balm just for colds? Blistex knew, apparently…)
Airborne (Vitamin C drink)


Here’s how I put it all together:

First, you need to make your paper pretty for the bottom to give your items a boost
so they are not just pell-mell in the box.
(10 bonus points because I just successfully used the phrase “pell-mell” in a sentence. I love English.)

Now, place that pretty pouf of tissue in the bottom of the box and then you want to place your items on top of it.
Start with your tallest item in back and work toward the front.
Place the items thusly: (That’s +10 again, I am on a roll,maybe moving back to America won’t be so difficult…
I have a superior command of the national language, after all.)

If you wanna get all fancy-shmancy you can do it up like so:

This  classy touch was super easy and inexpensive to do, here’s what you need:

Stay Well Kits -

Transparent Plastic Wrapping Paper – $2 @ Michael’s
Ribbon – $1.50 @ Michaels


This would be a great gift for a teacher or co-worker too.

If you need a bunch you can assemble them and have them all wrapped in less then 1/2 hr.
Watch a show and have all your office mates gift’s completed by the end.  Win-win.
