Let's take a look at the video tutorial...

 

Lisa's Inklings:

Make A Blessing Box with To Every Season

Blessing-box-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 market...you get the idea.)

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

Blessing-box-open

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

Blessing-Box-CardsIt's a simple project and I encourage you to do something similar!

Here's the recording of the Facebook Live video...

Lisa's Inklings:

  • 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:

I hope you will create your own Blessing Box and share a little of your handmade kindness with others in this season of Thanksgiving.
