There are two things in the world that are irresistible t0 me: fancy toiletries and pretty packaging. There, I said it! In the early days of our marriage, my husband used to send me out to get handwash (read: basic supermarket brand), only to have me come back half an hour later with an Italian organic lavender and eucalyptus version wrapped in artisan paper, much to his horror. What can I say? Beautifully-packaged toiletries just make me happy! This impending holiday season, in my attempt to spread a little of this love of mine, I’ve decided to make my own version for our out-of-town guests, complete with a cute sleep mask card and a personalised message. Try it, and your guests will love you for it! – Erin from BerinMade Paper Goods
PVA Glue & Super Glue
Hole-punch (not shown)
To make the sleep mask cards:
Step 1. Print the template onto colored paper and cut the shape out. You may need to back this with a strong backing card if your paper is light.
Step 2. Using a black marker, draw sleepy eyes (or whatever else you think would be fun, like sunglasses) and decorate with glitter. The template provides a blank version for your own drawing, or my own version for you to decorate.
Step 3. Write a personal message on the back for your guest!
Step 4. Hole-punch both ends and string through ribbon; then stick the pipe-cleaners around edge to finish.
Now fill your goodie back with lovely toiletries and leave in your guest bedroom for your guests to find!
