Winter Flu Give Away

Hi Everyone.

You probably thought when you saw the headline that I was giving away the flu lol!  Nope just a cute little flu prevention gift.

I am leaving the 50's and turning the big 60 in April.  Geez when did this happen?!! 
My daughters are giving me a nice birthday luncheon to celebrate and we have been working on a cute little favor for each of the guests.  It is this purse favor. 


 Is this not the sweetest little favor box.  It is a replica of a Dior purse.  Loved these when my daughter showed them to me.


We have been working on getting cute things to put in the purse favors.  We wanted to find things that the guests would find useful to put in their own purses.  

More about these favors later on when we get them complete.

 I had a few extra of the items we are putting in the favor boxes.  These are perfect for a little give away for all of you sweet friends out there and it will help with cold and flu prevention.

First let me show you how I got my craft on with one of the items going into the favor purses!!!

I found these great flat credit card size hand sanitizers on Amazon.  I love these because they are nice and flat.   They not only fit nicely in your purse you can also slide them down in a jean or pant pocket.  They are not bulky like a normal hand sanitizer.

I took off the ugly label.  It removed easily.

Then I took the label and stuck it on a piece of heavy paper and made my template.

 I went to the dollar store and got this great contact paper to make new covers.

It has lots of pattern choices.

I chose the smaller floral pattern to cover these.

I cut out smaller pieces of the pattern and put my template over the pattern and cut around the pattern.

 I peeled back the cut out contact paper and attached it to the hand sanitizers.  Let me tell you this was so easy.  Even a non crafty person like myself can make these!

I think they came out pretty cute.  A lot prettier than the generic covers that come on them.

Another cute item we are putting in the favor boxes are these cute purse size tissues.  Sniff's makes some cute designs.

These are two of the cute items that will go into the purse favors for my bff's to take home from the party later in April.

Stay tuned to see some of the other cute items my two daughters and I are making for these purse favors.

If you would like to win one of these little sets of the Sniff's and Hand Sanitizer to put in your own purse just leave me a comment below.  If you are a no reply blogger please leave me an email so if you win one of these I have a way to contact you.

Happy Friday.
Have a great Weekend.
Hugs,
Kris

  5. What sweet little party favors! You were so clever to remove the ugly label and replace it with something so cute! I guess I should have been using more hand sanitizer because I have had the flu for two weeks :o(

  6. What a cute purse. And I don't Think you are a non crafty person. You make things all the time it seems, lol.

  7. SO stinkin' cute! Those purses are gorgeous - what a great way to celebrate entering the next decade lol! I'm right behind you. I'm SO freaked out about germs now (I never used to be!). I bought purse size hand sanitizer and a mini spray Lysol today at Target. I was watching a report where they swabbed things like the key pads at the check out, etc. -- GROSSSSSS! So I'm going to spray these things before I use them or pick up that little pen to sign the key pad . . . don't care how weird I look lol.

  8. Those little purses are so incredibly cute! I know all the ladies will love them. I love how you used contact paper to cover the hand sanitizer cases. I believe I have that same contact paper in my linen closet! Or, at least, very close. Have a great weekend, Kris! And thanks for the chance to win your giveaway.

  17. How freakin' cute, Kris! And the way that sanitizer is packaged, it's super convenient for travel, too. Soon you'll be welcomed into this club of 60.....it ain't all it's cracked up to be, but it beats the alternative.

  42. Just found your blog tonight and I am enjoying my visit. I really like the idea of covering the packets with contact paper to make them pretty. This afternoon I had my "love lunch" with the ladies in my Bible study and gave them each vintage heart shaped plastic boxes I filled with little trinkets. I found the boxes in my father's basement. I had fun gathering things and they were happy with the little gift. Thank you for some new inspiration.
