Help for your Family and Friends

I cracked up the first time I saw one of these First Aid Kits and knew that someday I would have to make one!! Can you think of any better way to put fun in the Holiday?? What an elfish way to remind your friends of the joy of the Holiday Season. A season that is always chucked full surprises, smiles and laughter.. Do your friends need inspiration???? Well then.... give one of these little First aid kits as a gift. I know that my friends would laugh and chuckle so hard they would fall on the floor laughing hysterically. Isn't that what we are suppose to do.. make the Season fun and memorable for all? I think the list of items would look awesome in a handcrafted pouch with a zipper. Then you could use the pouch over and over again once the contents has been used up :) To remind them of the fun gift that they received by you :)

Survival Kit for a Friend...
Easy to make just add these items to a box tin or bag and print out your own label :)

Kisses: A reminder that we all need hugs & kisses.
Golden Thread: To tie hearts together in friendship.
Cotton Ball: To cushion the rough times, a symbol of support.
Life Saver: A reminder of the times we need each other's help.
Toothpick: To pick out the good in everyone...including yourself!
Gum: A reminder that friends stick together through good and bad.
Button: Because sometimes you have to "button your lip".
Candle: A reminder to share your light with others.
Eraser: To start over with a clean slate.

Actually, that first Aid Kit is more practical than funny to me. I keep one in the glove compartment in my car and I think that it would convey your caring for people more than anything else. After all, Christmas is the season of Love, so what's more loving than showing someone you care by giving them a first aid kit and heal their boo-boos? What a sweet gift!
