Craft It Forward: Simple Stress Relief Gifts


Simple Stress Relief Package to Brighten Someone's Day!

I’m participating in Michaels Craft Stores “Craft It Forward” week and I was trying to think of something that could cheer up anybody that might be “stressed out”!

It happens to all of us.

Here are a few that come to mind…

  • moving to a new state or country
  • taking an important exam
  • starting a new job
  • a sleepless mother with a newborn
  • someone struggling with an illness
  • just having a really bad day

…countless reasons to put a smile on someone’s face!

Here we go…

Simple Supply List


White Card Stock

Clear Party Bags

Bakers Twine

Bubble Wrap {I already had this in my office}

I headed to my local Michaels and found everything I needed {you can find those delicious mini chocolates near the registers}.

I rolled up about 12 inches of bubble wrap and tied it with the twine…

  2. This is awesome! I was at Michael's today in Kentucky, wish I had seen you there! Found some amazing deals & gifts for my aunt who will be 75 in a couple of days and a great nephew who will be 5 in a few days. Gotta love being able to find perfect gifts for everyone! :)

  4. It's really brilliant idea! Thank you for sharing!!!

    1. You are so welcome!! Thanks Nikii!

  5. this would be fun to give to a mom -stranger- who looks like she has just had it for the day. (i know when i have those days i would love some stranger love, instead of a dirty look!)

    1. Amen to this!! What a great way to pay it forward!

  6. So much Fun !!! I'm definitely doing this and distributing them to my fellow co-workers. Thank you for sharing this on the web. Have a great week!
