22 Super Dorky Puns for Care Packages

I have to admit, while I was creating care packages, I would wrack my brain and simultaneously crack myself while coming up with puns. So, on the off chance that there's someone out there who is just as goofy and is looking for some ideas, I've created this round up of every dorky care package pun I used last year. It's just what the interwebz needs!

Review: Whimseybox (A Subscription Box)

Disclosure: I received product from Whimseybox for a review. I only review and endorse products that I enjoy and believe that my readers will, too. All opinions are my own.  This post contains affiliate links.

Let me cut to the chase: Whimseybox is awesome. It is fantastic. Here's my photographic evidence: 

First of all, the box is beautifully presented. It was all tied up in paper and a ribbon with a gorgeous card. When I unwrapped it, here's what I found:

That's right-- I got to play with clay! More precisely, I learned how to make a textured clay dish. 

Pretty, right? Who woulda thunk?

Because it was air-drying clay, it took about 24 hours for it to be usable. From start to finish, it took me around 20 minutes to create and clean up.

 The box was generous with materials, so I still had a ton of clay left over. I made an "Our First Apartment" ornament for the Christmas tree with a little bit of it. You have definitely not heard the last of projects with air dry clay! 

Did I mention that I absolutely love Whimseybox?!

Just click on the photo to be taken to the post where I explain what materials I used to decorate and what each package contained. Happy care-packaging! 

And, for the Sochi Olympics...
