Make A Blessing Box with To Every Season


Yesterday's Facebook Live featured this Blessing Box and some sweet little handmade cards.

The idea is to bless others by leaving a little card in unexpected places with an inspiring message.  Usually, I will carry mini Valentines to share on Valentine's Day but this year will be sharing during the fall preceding Thanksgiving.  I know in my heart that those who find the cards are meant to have them.  Another idea is to share with those who provide a service for you.  (Mail Carrier, clerk at the bank, cashier at the get the idea.)

Here is a photo of how the box opens...


Here's a peek at the little cards.  I made three of each.

  • For the box... Card stock is cut to 6-1/4 x 11.  Score on the 11" side at 1-1/2, 4-3/4, 6-1/4, 9-1/2.  Turn and score on the 6-1/4" side at 1-1/2 and 4-3/4.
  • Designer Paper for top of box is cut to 3" x 3".
  • For the cards...cut card stock to 3" x 6" and score in half at 3".
  • Designer paper is cut to 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" for cards with a piece of Whisper White for the inside cut the same.

Here are the supplies used for the Blessing Box project:
