Brighten someone’s day with a gift box full of “sunshine” and a Free Printable Gift Tag!

Life is hard. Whether you’ve got the weight of the world on your shoulders or are having a string of bad luck, it’s hard to find the positive things. I’ll always be grateful for those who went out of their way to cheer me up when I’ve had a bad day. Now, I like to return the favor by putting together a “Sunshine Gift Box” to make someone else’s day just a little bit brighter.



  1. Find something to use as your gift box. I found a small, unpainted wooden crate at the craft store.

  1. Paint the crate with 2-3 coats of yellow acrylic paint, making sure to let the paint dry completely between coats.
