I started out with a US Postal Service large flat rate priority box. These boxes cost around $15 to ship and you can make them as heavy as you want. I always decorate my boxes with supplies from Dollar Tree or with things I can find around the house. I started out decorating the inside and flaps of the box with wrapping paper. I used a Cricut machine to cut out "Happy Birthday", "Missing You", and "Twenty-three" with construction paper. The goal of my decorations is to make them as cute and cheap as possible.
|I also attached a picture of us from his 21st birthday. I added the party hats :]|
Along with the cake, here is what I put in his birthday care package...
single serve tuna packets
pretzels (to dip in the nutella)
single shots of Jack Daniel's and Captain Morgan (it is his birthday after all)
red velvet cake in a jar
presents from me
cards from his family
random letters I write to him
After I squished everything into the box and stuffed it to the top with tissue paper (to prevent things from rolling around while being shipped) I popped a pack of party poppers to make the box SCREAM happy birthday (if it didn't already). I hope he has a great birthday and enjoys the package!
