Living at a distance from friends and loved ones can present a problem when you want to send a cute gift. Recently I gathered up gifts from members of our church family to send to a family who had moved away. I wanted to make this feel a little bit like a baby shower (as much as can be done in a box)...and baby showers need decorations, right?
I created this banner that would pop up when the flaps of the cardboard box were lifted:
I thought this was a fun addition for a gift sent from afar.
Please share with me - what do you do to make long-distance gifts special?
PS - I am next week's Growing In Unity gal! Please be sure to stop by each day next week to see what I've created - and comment to win some Unity stamps!
