Get Well Take-Out Box Gift

 

 
 
A blog post from me...can you believe it?
Life has really been full around here! 
No time to blog, or comment on blogs or even much creating. 

However, today was a bit different.
I received a call last night that a dear friend was recovering in the hospital after a terrrible fall and femur break...
she needed some visiting and some love.
You know what that calls for?  Chocolate!

I whipped up some brownies and looked around for something cute to put them in.
This is what I came up with.  Take a look.
 
A decorated take-out box!

No fall colors, sorry. 
(My friend's favorite colors are blues and pinks.)




So simple and easy to personalize.
You can purchase take out boxes at any craft store.

Cut cardstock to fit the outside front and back of the box.
Adhere with double stick tape, or heavy duty adhesive.
 
Use letter stickers to spell Get Well Soon!
I punched holes and put in eyelets using my Crop-o-dile.
Then,  I threaded ribbon through the eyelets and tied knots.
Adhere to container with the double stick tape.
 
 
On the back side, I spelled, "Love you so."
 
 
I added a couple flowers on the the top.

On the side, I tied on a mini-tag.
"Praying for you!"
 
 
Quick, cute and simple!  I loaded the box up with brownies and now I'm off to the hospital.
Get well soon, Saundra!

  2. Love it! Love the letter stickers (where did you get them - I haven't been able to find them). Also...you forgot to mention that some of your other FABULOUS in-the-hospital-gifts include: candy, other tasty treats, sharing dinner, and magazines!!!

  3. I love it. I have a friend battling cancer, might have to go grab me some take out boxes from the craft store. She may be doing chemo so will need to come up with some fun things to put in it and make it a regular occurrence. Thanks for a fun idea for a not so fun time.
