Sometimes a care package just feels meant to be, like the whole universe wants you to create that care package. Way back at the beginning of this deployment, I was strolling through the gift wrap section of WalMart and found the most amazing emoji wrapping paper. I immediately knew that I wanted to send A an emoji care package!
I opted to keep the design of the box very simple so that the wrapping paper was the show piece of the emoji care package. I found a scrapbook paper that was very similar to the background of the wrapping paper and went from there.
While the flaps were very simple, I couldn’t leave the bottom plain! The blowing kiss emoji seemed like a perfect fit for a deployment care package and I absolutely love the way it turned out. I could certainly see this becoming a listing in my shop!
I always like wrapping a care package’s contents and to find wrapping paper that fits a theme perfectly? Well that’s like care package heaven! I love the cute little faces and think they totally sum up my relationship with A. There are always lots of smiles, laughter and maybe a stuck out tongue or two. I have seen online that you can get wrapping paper online with faces on, but not of emojis – actual faces from photos! How cool is that? I think my next care package will have to incorporate Custom Gift Wrapping Paper like that!
The overall look when the box is open is exactly what I envisioned the day I bought the wrapping paper. It’s such a simple theme, but this emoji care package would be perfect to send just about any time of the year, especially between holidays.
Items in this emoji care package include: lots of magazines, mixed nuts, protein drinks, Mio water flavoring, trail mix, beef jerky, Nutella and peanut butter.
