So, I have thought A LOT about germs lately! My kids and I have been SO sick with one thing after another that it has been hard to think about anything else. So, now that I'm finally feeling a little better and so are my kiddos I thought I'd have some fun and make an anti germ project to tell those little buggers to get on outta here for a good long while. *LOL* Wishful thinking perhaps, maybe the placebo effect will work.

I had this cute little white mailbox with a red flag back from before Valentine's Day when the Target $1 spot was carrying them. I figured I'd turn the little mailbox into an anti germ kit. I intend to fill it with little things like Purel, tissues, and maybe some vitamin C and then pass it along to a friend as a tiny gift.
I covered the front and back with black paper, and added ribbon to the sides. I covered the main part of the mailbox with green paper. Then I added a bunch of adorable little germs from the Feeling Green set from Letting Delights. I finished off by decorating the little flag to simply say "Germ Killer Kit" with some faux stitching around it.
I sure think it turned out cute :) If I end up hanging onto this for awhile I may make it part of a larger gift - like a gift basket that also has chicken soup, medicine, etc. Honestly, sometimes the people that are the hardest to shop for end up liking practical gifts and who doesn't hate cold and flu season?
Thanks for visiting today! I'm glad to be getting back to my regular blogging routine - and more grateful than ever for my usually healthy family.
