Our congregation has a program where families can adopt a college student for the school year. We are asked to encourage them throughout the year with prayers, cards, care packages, messages on social media--generally whatever we are comfortable with.
We adopted a young man whom we have known for a long time who is a senior. With Valentine's Day approaching, I thought we could send him a little care package, ya know, "show the love". :)
When I started looking for valentine ideas for guys, all I seemed to find were gifts and cards for a boyfriend or hubby. That was just a little too romantic for what we were aiming for, and anything funny seemed inappropriate as well. I also wanted to send some practical items along with some of his favorites and of course, something silly.
As is tradition now at our house, valentines must be punny.
So, I did some googling, and walked through a store or two, and came up with the following list of punny phrases and items.
Using my Silhouette Cameo, I cut out hearts and hand-wrote the notes on each one. Maybe when I have more time and experience, I will do this with the print and cut features of the Cameo, but I kinda like the handwritten part.
