halloween care package

Last month I shared a fun and preppy care package that I sent to my oldest daughter who started her freshman year of college this year.  If you missed that post, click here for the details.

I love putting surprises in the mail to her, and I think she likes receiving them…although, I did tease her when she was home for fall break that she’s taking them for granted!

Today, I’m sharing my latest care package…a Halloween care package.

First, I decorated the inside flaps of the box in much the same way as the other package, by adhering cardstock to them.  I used orange (of course) and a black and white pattern of clocks.  I thought it was appropriate since this is a countdown box, of sorts.

Some adhesive letters were put on the box flaps, giving the package a name…THE 13 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN.

Wording was added to the box flaps, with instructions to open one “trick or treat” each day until Halloween.

Next, I filled the box.  I wrapped 13 surprises in brown kraft paper and tied them with baker’s twine.  Then each one was assigned a number.

The directions say to open #1 on October 19th and then one each day.  That means #13 will be opened on Halloween!  A box of 13 fun surprises for the days leading up to Halloween!

All that is left to do is seal the box and mail it!

And wait to hear when she receives it…
