I put together a package of goodies to bolster a friend up.
The basket is cheerful and bright. Mine is specifically because my friend lost her job (grrr). But it could easily translate to be used for any of life’s tough challenges (a death, a break-up or a divorce…)
The best part of this project is that I did it all from the dollar store. I made a trip to the amazing Japanese Dollar store Diaso. Big impact without a big price tag! Bonus. And the colorful animation that is characteristic of Japanese design really gives the whole thing a very “special” and playful feel. (Also, the fact that less than 10% of the words are in English. )
I wanted to show all detail so that you could put together your own.
(All the treats)
ID neck tag
mini cutting board
bottle of wine
(when I started thinking up the captions that I would write on the card, the ideas started to flow.)
Supplies from home:
raffia or ribbon
I took each item, and put a little message on it using some colorful card stock.
I opened the bandana and laid it in the basket. Then I wrapped the raffia around the outside and tied it.
I’ll finish it off with a card on the top.
