Since Easter is coming up I thought it would be fun to make him an Easter basket to send over. Thankfully he has his own room, so I don't have to worry about him being made fun of for the goofy stuff his wife sends.
I picked up a tin bucket at Dollar Tree and covered it in camo scrapbook paper. Then I threw in some candy, a game and some plastic eggs. Instead of just filling the eggs with candy I made some "Love Coupons" for him to redeem when he's home (or whenever!).
I printed them off as photos, 3.5 x 5 size. It cut off the border on the right, but 4x6 will print the entire image. I wrote NEVER! as the expiration date and then rolled them up and stuck them in the eggs.
Here is my template if you want to make your own:
Here is my finished basket:
I tied everything together in one of those cellophane basket bags and stuck it in a flat rate box. Now I just have to find time to make it to the post office!
