Why should you send a box of sunshine?

The other day a friend mentioned how blue she was. I was actually shocked. This is a person that always seems happy.  I am constantly shocked by her talent and creativity. She is probably the most successful person I know. To hear these feelings from someone that I felt had it all was surprising. It made me realize that no matter where we are in life we ALL struggle with feelings of doubt, hopelessness, and insecurity.

This friend needed a little box of sunshine to brighten her day. I truly believe we are here to help each other along. It doesn’t take much to give someone a little bit of encouragement and show that they matter and you care. Often that is all someone needs to push them forward and give them hope!

It is easy to make your own stickers to embellish the box, the bottoms of Hershey kisses and an envelope. Office supply stores sell a solid sheet of label paper that works perfectly to make your own printable stickers.

A large circle punch easily cuts out the larger suns. A 2 1/2 inch circle punch fits perfectly or 3-inch circle punch gives a tiny border.
