Anniversary Care Package

Happy One Year Anniversary Care Package!! 

I did thoroughly enjoy putting this box together and I liked being able to be sappy and girly with it. I covered the outside of the box with red and pink duct tape. and wrote "I love you" on the top with some hearts. 
The Flaps 
Two of the flaps were just pictures of us. Another had two bird cut outs with a heart between them. We're such love birds. The last one had some quotes. 
"I love you with all my butt, I would say heart but my butt is bigger."
"Hey! Guess what? We're getting married soon!"
"I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I'm with you."
"You spin my head right round, right round."
The Inside
Nothing special, just pretty colored paper with hearts.
The Contents

Snacks: Chex Mix, pudding, and mini cereal boxes. 
Randoms: Envelope with some pictures of me holding silly note cards. 
Anniversary Gift: made it myself (made the box too). A 52 reasons why I love you craft!
The deck of cards I used were Bicycle 1800 Vintage Series Playing Cards. I chose these simply because of the way they looked, old and dated. I purchased them HERE on Amazon (2 pack).
I then designed little pieces of paper with borders in Microsoft Word, glued them on each card, and wrote the reasons on there. For the Microsoft Word version of the paper cutouts visit THIS LINK. So you can print them and make your own! You can even add text right to the box if you don't want to hand write the reasons. I had wrote it because it's more meaningful to me that way. I also added a quote to the back side of the cover card "One day we will never have to say goodbye, only goodnight." And on the last card I added a Marine themed LOVE. I punched holes in the cards and clasped them together with metal rings (found at walmart, super cheap). For the cover I also attached two scrabble tiles. J for Jake and M for Miranda. 
The box I made out of an old checkbox. I just covered it with construction paper, added some ribbon, and a colored wooden heart, and a little expression of how much I love him.
