Month Box: January + Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day

Back with another fun family gift! This is another gift we created for our family members and is part of the "Year Gift" we made. If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit HERE or visit my pinterest board  Rubber Redneck Year Gifts to see them all in one spot.

January Month

At the beginning of each month; each family has a box to open on the first of the month besides the random days we picked out of each month.  In this month box is a fact sheet we put together about the month it includes the following: the history of the month's name, historical things that happened for the month on select dates, and what the month is know for. (It's pretty cool as I am a huge history buff so I love these sheets we created!) Each month is know for a lot of things so we just picked a few things that we thought would be fun to learn about. January Box features the following; National Blood Donor Month, Hot Tea Month, National Soup Month, Letter Writing Week. For the Hot Tea Month and National Soup Month we included tea packets and a can of soup.

What we did:

Blood Donor Kit

Blood Donor Month: We put together a fun kit with a band aid and cotton balls to use after donating blood. I put it all in a cellophane bag. Along with the kit I created a tag to go onto the little package. I printed them out onto Whisper White card stock and made a little red cross from our Real Red card stock. Then attached with some retired Pop of Pink Washi Tape.

Here is the PDF Tag I created if you would like to make one. Print it out onto card stock.

National Letter Writing Week: This is the 2nd Week of January. I picked this event for sentimental reasons. Growing up as a kid my grandparents would go south to Florida and we would write letters to my grandparents so I wanted the kids to write letters. The fun part about this I didn't stop and think about it but kids don't do this anymore we have email and cellphones for texting. My cousin's kids had never written a letter before so it was a great learning experience for them. It was so awesome to have a hand in teaching them something.


Here I am reading the letters I received in the mail!! It was so cool to get letters from the kiddos.

National Letter Writing Week

I created a little packet using a Manila Envelope. Inside the envelope was paper, pencil and envelopes. I created a tag to print out and attach to the envelope. I used the Better Together Stamp Set to stamp onto the tag and envelope in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I dressed up the envelope with the Pop of Pink Washi Tape (retired).  I had a lot of fun putting this month box together.

Here is the PDF Tag I created if you would like to make one. Print it out onto card stock.
