For when you have to be away from your little one…

The lovely story of the KISS BOX (available for purchase here) inspired an afternoon of crafting for my daughter and I. We decoupaged a plain paper heart box using art tissue paper for our own kiss boxes. Any tissue paper will work. I usually save mine from when I receive gift bags. Decoupaging is a fun and simple craft. You simply brush a little glue (like MOD PODGE) onto the surface of the box, then apply a single piece of tissue paper torn to the right size, and then brush some more glue over it. It’s a fun way to personalize unfinished paper surfaces.

My daughter and I made these boxes so that we could fill them up with kisses for the days when we must be apart. We added a picture of ourselves printed on plain paper (the paper must be porous to absorb the glue, so photograph paper won’t work.) These would also make a great gift for long-distance friends and family.

Have fun and be a spark in the world!
