Bugaboo ABaC


Welcome to Bugaboo's Anything But a Card Day!
I really like doing ABaC projects. Somedays I'm just in the mood to create something other than a card. Can anyone relate to this? Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE making cards, but I need varity from time to time. It helps me shake things up.
I was going to put some cute little items into this tin for a "Get Well" gift, but I didn't have what I was looking for at home. Since this is a Bandaid tin, I could have put bandaids in it but where is the fun in that? I really wanted to put a soup packet in here and some Oster Crackers, but none of those items could be found at my home =) Other thoughts: tea, hot chocolate, Asprin or any candy items this person may love. The ideas are endless. The picture below is of the top of the tin. I didn't want to necessarily use Get Well for the sentiment, so I went with Thinking of You as to create a varity of uses for the tin.
You will want to check out the Bugaboo Blog to see what the other DT members did for their ABaC projects.
Thanks for popping in!

Oh how CUTe!!!! What a darling way to dress up a tin. I think your ideas for the inside are great. Tea bags with little packets of honey would be cute too for those sore throats :)
