Christmas last week, New Year’s this week…the pages are flying off the calendar! Ok so it’s not really 2018 yet, but when you’re shipping care packages halfway around the world, sometimes you have to think ahead. That’s why I’m excited that my New Year’s care package is now available in the shop.
I modeled this one after my husband’s New Year’s care package from last year and, just like my Christmas product, I’m really pleased with how it turned out! I wanted paper that was sparkly without being glittery (if your loved one is anything like my husband, glitter is a no go). But what’s a New Year’s care package without some sparkle?!
The shimmery black paper is the perfect backdrop for my design and a type of paper that I keep coming back to for care packages. It’s a nice thickness and the shimmer adds a little extra to the design. The gold cutouts really pop against the black and add just the right amount of sparkle to this New Year’s care package.
The gold lettering and black background sell the whole New Year’s theme, but I think the fireworks really make the box! You can almost hear them explode amid the oohs and aahs of the crowd. This New Year’s care package is a great way to start off 2018 with your loved one and make it your best year yet.
While it doesn’t quite make up for not being able to kiss them at midnight, it’s a very close second. You can fill it with lots of photos and wishes for 2018. Other contents could include confetti, Hershey’s kisses, sparkling apple cider and fun decorations.
You can shop this New Year’s care package now. As always, it ships free and 10% of your total is donated to an organization that supports military families.
