Love You Bunches Monkey Kit

Thanks A Bunch For Your Missionary Service! We Love You Bunches!!!

Well I have to admit that this box was more of a ‘Food’ box centered around things that my ‘Little Monkey’ might want to eat since he has been out of the United States for quite a while now – but with lots of Spiritual Things thrown in!

I was surprised though at how easy it was to find ‘MONKEY’ items as I shopped around town. My favorite find was the individual plastic Banana Savers that I found at the Dollar Tree Store! Who would have thought! (These can also be purchased on Amazon or Ebay.)

Your 18-Page Kit will include the following:

✔ 1-Introduction Letter with easy to follow instructions to help you put together the Perfect Care Package.
✔ 4- Large (11.5X8.5″) Adjustable Stickers to decorate your 4 box flaps of your shipping package. Just peel and stick! (These stickers are designed to fit a USPS Priority Mail Large Flat Rate Box and large UPS boxes. The stickers can also be easily trimmed to fit a USPS Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate Box as well as some Medium and Small UPS boxes or use your own box.) * Please note the kit does not include the actual box,
✔ 1-Box Introduction Letter to be placed in your Box right before you tape it up. This unique design lets your Missionary know the theme of your care package and that something special has been created just for them!
✔ 1-Page of Unique Envelope Designs that you can adhere to the front of your Letter to your Missionary and their Companion! This page is also printed on sticker paper – so you just need to cut them out and adhere to any envelope of your choice. It’s that easy!
✔ 1-Custom Missionary Letter for you to include with your personal Letter to your Missionary.
✔ 9-Pages with multiple Custom Tags and ideas that Can Be Used to put together your Love You Bunches Care Package.
✔ 1-Page Shopping List of ideas of what to include inside your care package and where to find the items.

Just Swingin’ On By! It’s always so fun to see the pictures our Missionaries send home of them opening up their crazy boxes decorated in whatever the ‘Theme’ of the box is.

Banana Grams!  One thing we always included in all of our Missionary Box Mom Boxes was a personalized letter to each Missionary from each Mother. For this ‘Box’ since it is mostly just fun food I didn’t worry about explaining what I sent! Many times over we have received thank you letters from our Missionaries – but the things they thanked us all for the most was the letters we included. It’s just a little piece of ‘Home’ in a box! So don’t forget to write!
