DIY : Care Packages!

My bestie lives in Washington D.C and I live in central Florida, so you can say it’s a BIT OF A DRIVE. Of course I was skimming through Pinterest and saw this idea – DIY care packages! Of course this is a SUPER cute idea and I just had to try it out for myself.

Picking a theme

So you decided to make a care package, now it’s time to pick a good theme! Think about your friends favorite things – do they love binge watching Netflix? Or maybe they love to travel? My bestie and I always met up at our favorite Starbucks, no matter what state we were in, we were always at Starbucks. Of course I decided to make a Miss You A Latte themed care package

If you are using my theme, here’s my supply list

Let’s put it together!

  • I started by wrapping the inside of the box with glitter paper – Outline the outside of the box and hot glue the paper in the inside. The glitter paper was a little thick, using tape did not work well.


  • Letting the inside box liner glue dry, I then started on making the small paper Starbucks cups (writing our names poorly on the cups – of course)
  • I cut small slivers of red scrap booking paper and made a trailer from one side of the lid to the other (connecting our Starbucks cups together). I then placed the scrap booking plane in the middle


  • I hot glued the gold letter stickers on the top and bottom lids to spell out “I miss you a latte”
  • I then filled up the box full of treats! Don’t worry too much about making a nice display, it’s bound to get mixed up in shipping
I think some how Tinsel knew we were sending a package to her Uncle Patrick 🙂

Honestly that was just about it. Now everyone should expect care packages from me, because this was TOO FUN to make! Have you ever made a care package like this one? Or maybe something a bit different? I’d like to hear about it below in the comments!
