Snail Mail

Valentine's Day may be more than a week away, but for our homeschool group, the big day is tomorrow. During our monthly skate day, the kids will be bringing boxes for a contest and valentines to exchange. We have never done the exchange as I am not a fan of V-Day and neither of the older boys care about such "mushy" stuff. Griffin, my love bug, was taken with the idea for the first time this year. I let him come up his theme and, being a kid after my own heart, he picked snails.

We worked last night on his box idea and, after several failed attempts, I think we have a design that will work and look how he wants it to. It is still a work in progress. We did however find the perfect cards online thanks to Zakka Life.

Aren't they cute? We modified the original design a bit, but changing from suckers to chocolates at G's request. We used a cool temp glue gun to attach the candies. He can't wait to get this box finished and give his treats to all his friends tomorrow!
