Decorate Canvas Tote

Decorate the canvas tote to make it fun and colorful! Tip: place a piece of paper in the tote before decorating. This will prevent the marker from bleeding through the tote.

Write a Note to the Recipient and Decorate the Envelope

Use the enclosed materials to write a card and decorate the envelope. Express your encouragement and include a hopeful message.

Decorate the Canvas Bag

Use the permanent markers to decorate the canvas bag. Tip: Place a piece of paper in the bag before decorating to prevent the markers from bleeding through. 

Worry Stone

* Worry stones are smooth, polished rocks used for relaxation or anxiety relief to help one feel grounded. The stone is meant to be kept in one’s pocket. The physical act of massaging a worry stone for several minutes is proven to provide therapeutic & psychological benefits that help soothe your nervous system, reduce stress and anxiety, and help clear your mind so you can focus and think clearly.
 On one side of the drawstring bag write an inspirational or calming word. Examples: hope, love, grow, breathe, dream, courage, wonder. Tip: Place a piece of paper or cardboard in the bag before decorating to prevent the marker from bleeding through.

Decorate the Playing Cards

Write encouraging messages, affirmations, jokes, or pictures on the white round stickers. Place the labels on the back of some of your playing cards.
