Yes, I’m serious.
A few days ago, I was standing in line at Target hoping to make it quickly through checkout after a particularly hectic trip trying to keep four kids four and under occupied and happy. Of course, the lady in front of me whips out a checkbook. Argh. I mean, really?! I always seem to get stuck behind checkbook people. The kind that lost their drivers license last week so they can’t show it to the cashier. Which in turn means a manager approval. Which takes more time. And almost always, I have gotten behind this person because they have one item to purchase.
Nevertheless, I had a few minutes to look at what was displayed on the hooks in the checkout area. In between telling my sweet ones “no” to multiple flavors and varieties of candy, I caught a glimpse of these babies.
Greek key on Kleenex?!! And the colors? Yum!
Quickly, I grabbed two packages. I love little things like this that are simple but just make you smile. It got me thinking, these are so darling, maybe they could make someone else smile, too! Perhaps a “I’m thinking of you” gift for a friend that has the sniffles? Some spare trim, and a cute handwritten note is all you need to lift someone’s spirits.
Or a petite hostess gift? A “just because”?
This took me all of two minutes to do: grosgrain ribbon, a scrap of felt, and a punch out letter “K”.
Little note about the Kleenex: I thought all of the individual tissues would be the fun patterns, but it’s only the plastic envelope that holds them. That’s okay though, I still love the designs, and they will look cute in your bag!
Come back tomorrow for the DIY I am super excited about! I think you will love it!
