Happy Holidays! Tracy here from TGIF-This Grandma is Fun! A wonderful site where I blog at with my two sisters Deb and Sherri. We share creative ideas you can do with your grandchildren and address all issues that come with this wonderful stage of life.
Amy was kind enough to invite us to participate in her festive Holiday Series. I’m here to share a fun Scripture Clues Christmas Package idea. Our daughter is currently serving an eighteen-month mission for our church in Wisconsin. We will not have her home for Christmas this year, so I decided to send her package filled with a fun gifts to open each day until Christmas.
I chose 24 of the scripture clues/gifts I knew my daughter would enjoy and wrapped them up in beautiful red, white and gold gift wrap. I taped the scripture clue on the front of each gift and finished them off with a bow.
It all starts with this little poem! (Scroll the bottom of this post to download all the free printables to create a box of your own!)
Every gift has been wrapped just for you,
included with each one is a scripture clue.
Don’t be in a rush to unwrap your gift,
reading the clue first will give you a lift.
Think and ponder what could it be?
Now rip open your gift so you can see.
We hope each item makes you smile,
choosing each one took us awhile.
All this effort was for one important reason,
we want you to have the best holiday season.
The gifts turned out so pretty I couldn’t to stand put them in a plain box from the Post Office. Oh, how I love Priority Mail’s free boxes and expedited delivery! I lined the boxed with some of the gold and white wrapping paper to make it more festive.
Next, I created some cute graphics to tape onto the inside of box flaps.
This is how the box looks with the graphics on the flaps.
After placing all the gifts inside I sprinkled regular and mint Hershey Kisses over the gifts. Everything is better with a little chocolate!
Even though we won’t be together for Christmas this year, it comforts me to know this package will bring a smile to my daughter’s beautiful face. Scroll down to download the printables so you can create a package like this for your loved ones.
