Sending you some sunshine

I have a fun project to share today. A girl my daughter knows was in a horrible car accident and broke her leg. We wanted to do something nice to cheer her up so I was looking on Pinterest and it was hard to find get well stuff, but then I discovered sunshine boxes. For those wondering a sunshine box is a box colored yellow and filled with yellow items.  They were all big on Pinterest and I just wanted a mini gift.

You might remember I got a super great deal on paint cans so I used one to create this.  I used washi tape for the can and then the cover I took white card stock covered it with the washi tape and then used a punch to give it a shape.

I apologize the pics I ran out of time when I had to have it done to give to her and was rushed in the pictures.  The sun is from simply charmed and it was cut at 2.5 inches

Here is all the yellow things we filled it with.  She loved it.  There was yellow nailpolish, socks, lemonade, lip gloss, ear phones, and salt water taffy. I had more but it couldn't fit in the can.

Have a great night.
