The ultimate care package with free PDF

I recently made a care package for my brother-in-law who is living in America for a couple of years and it was featured on Hello Bee yesterday. I call it, The Ultimate. I mean, who doesn’t love a good care package?! Especially when the items are mini-sized. It’s too cute for its own good. 
Materials: suitcase, acrylic paint, angled paintbrush, scissors, care package goodies, masking tape
Step 1: Start by creating the air mail border on the box. I free-styled it with an angled paintbrush so that all you need is one stroke (like applying nail polish!). I started with the white and measured it every .5″ around.
Step 2: I added another coat of white paint.
Step 3: Now go in and add the blue on top to every other white strip. To get a super clean air mail effect, use the masking tape to create the lines and then peel them off.
Step 4: Add another coat of blue paint.
Step 5: Add in the care package goodies. I bought mini sized candy from Haribo, bouncy balls, a Rubiks cube keychain, a little notebook, a small package of potato chips, and licorice (the Danes LOVE licorice).
Step 6: Cut out the air mail label (free PDF here) and apply with tape to the top of the box.
Step 7: Add on some cute stamps and send it on its way. I checked with the Danish Post to see if it was ok to send and they said it was, so hopefully it is where you are too.

Wouldn’t your day be made if you received one of these?! Now, go make someone’s day!
