DIY Party In A Box

If you are like me, you’ve got a lot of long dis­tance friends. I’ve moved a fair amount, always leav­ing dear friends as I do. I love being able to keep in touch through all the tech­nol­ogy – insta­gram pics of the kids, tweet­ing back and forth, etc. But still noth­ing com­pares to good old snail mail when it comes to send­ing some love.

This party-in-a-box idea is per­fect for those far away friends and fam­ily who are cel­e­brat­ing birth­days and other spe­cial occa­sions. Sim­ply put all the items together and drop it in the mail! Your loved ones will feel a lit­tle of your love as they celebrate.

To make the cup­cake flags, sim­ply wrap washi tape around the lol­lipop sticks. Fun and easy!  Place the cup­cake sprin­kles and gum­balls in the glas­sine bags and seal with more washi tape (I might like washi tape a lit­tle too much).
