Feel Better Inspiration

Good morning and welcome back to Day 4 of the Papertrey Ink December countdown. Today we're sharing projects for our under-the-weather friends and family. It's never fun to be sick, but a care package can make even the ickiest days a little bit brighter. Erin has designed a whole collection of products that will make it a breeze to deliver a ray of sunshine to your laid-up loved ones.

I've put together a gift basket full of my favorite sick day staples along with some adorable coordinating accessories I created to make it even more special.

Get Well Gift Basket

I filled my basket with a magazine, tea, a jar of local honey, cough drops, Alka-Seltzer + Cold, hand sanitizer, tissues, and lip balm. I don't know about you, but these are all things I reach for the moment I begin to feel a cold coming on.

Mini Gingham Tissue Box

Erin designed a tiny Tissue Box Cover Die to help you dress up mini packages of tissues. The result is so stinkin' cute! I created my box by stamping the Background Basics: Super Gingham pattern in Berry Sorbet on Pale Peony cardstock. I die cut two shapes and assembled the box, tucking the tissues inside before sealing it up.

Take It Easy Card

Then I created a card using Erin's Take It Easy set and her Cozy Bed Dies. I used Background Basics: Super Gingham in Berry Sorbet on Pale Peony for the comforter. Background Basics: Woodgrain came in handy to add texture to the headboard. The sheet and pillow case were sponged with Lemon Tart and the card base was sponged with Aqua Mist before I adhered the bedding layers and stamped the sentiment. I love how you can change the headline on the little newspaper. Such a fun detail!

Take It Easy Card Interior

On the inside of the card I stamped the pajamas in Pale Peony and the sentiment from Keep It Simple: Sending Hugs in Smokey Shadow.

Back On Your Feet Tag

I also made a tag with Take It Easy to tie to coordinate with my gift basket. I used Tag Sale: Quilted as the base and added a layer of Pale Peony cardstock that got the gingham treatment. I heat embossed the sentiment before I stamped the pajamas in Smokey Shadow and colored them with colored pencils. I adhered them to the tag with flat and foam adhesives for a bit of texture and then tied on a bit of yellow baker's twine. I love how easy it was to make everything coordinate!

Thank you so much for joining me today! Make sure to pop in on Nichole, Amy, Ashley, Betsy, Dawn, Heather, Kay, Laurie S., Laurie W., Melissa, Erin, and Maile to see more inspiration. Have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here again tomorrow.
