Life Gives you Lemons ... Cheer Me Up Gifts

A really nice lady that works at the YMCA that is always so cheerful and nice seemed a little down. We usually chit chat say hi etc and got to talking that she was just having a hard time lately.  I goggled Cheer Me Up Gifts and came across and idea on Michelle Paige's.  She had a cute free printable also to add to the basket.


This is a cute idea and rather inexpensive to make.

What you need:
Basket (I found at Hobby Lobby 50% off for $4.99)
Lemonade Cup (I added this to the gift at Hobby Lobby 50% off for $2.99)
Lemon Soap (Big Lot's $1)
Small Lemons (Grocery Store 5/$1)
Crystal Light Lemonade (Grocery Store $2.99)
Lemon Candies (Hobby Lobby $1.99)
Lemon Citrus Chapstick (Big Lot's $1)
Plastic decorating bag (Dollar Tree 25pk/$1)
Ribbon (White and Pink or just Pink)
Card Stock (For Tag and optional lemonade decorations)
Tissue Paper (optional to fit items in basket)

I had a plastic cookie bag I put the lemon's in.  I added some fun little details using my circut cutter. We had a Lemonade cartridge from the Lemon Battery Science Fair ProjectCaden did so I cut out a few lemons and a drink that I then cut out square's using the George Cartridge. I added in all the treats I picked up into the basket, I put a little tissue paper to hold everything together. I used ribbon to attach the free printable she had, I printed on white card stock and then added a piece of yellow card stock behind to make the tag pop.

You don't have to have the lemon's etc I just thought it would be fun and I had the cartridge and paper so it was easy to do. Make it fun add what fun lemon's you find, I recommend Hobby Lobby they had a whole lemonade section. 


Have a great week!
