Ideas for boxes needed

Jules_UKMay 7, 2006

I have a lot of heart shaped card boxes (2.5" x 2.5") that are empty. I want to include a little scroll or poem or something etc to sell them for my local Hospice. They will only sell for the equivalent of $2 so I need a cheap idea. Thanks to all who reply.

Here's one that has been around a while. It is actually for a box that does NOT open - glue the top to bottom, decoratively paint and seal with acrylic, then wrap with a ribbon; or wrap with paper, then a ribbon. You could print the poem in a fairly small font and attach it to the top or bottom of box, or just link it in some other way.

A Gift of Love (A small empty package)

This is a very special gift
That you can never see.
The reason it's so special is
It comes to you from me.
Whenever you are lonely
or even feeling blue,
You only have to hold this gift,
And know I think of you.
You never can unwrap it,
The ribbon will stay tied.
Just hold the box up to your heart:
It's filled with love inside!

It would be nice if you could include a To: / From: tag made of decorated-to-match cardstock to make the gift-giving easier, and as a remembrance for the recipient.

Thank you for that. I have been making these little boxes for the Hospice for about 12 years!!!! I used to make them with little cubes of wood but I don't have a source for them now. I used the same poem and attached it to the box with ribbon on the outside. They sold really well. Maybe I will go with the same idea using the boxes. I appreciate your response, many thanks.
