Newlywed Survival Kit

This was the gift I gave my cousin Jill and her Husband Max for their wedding. I used a gallon pail from stampendous, the words Mr. & Mrs. are from Paper Studio, the lace card stock is from ki Memories (I love this stuff!), the flowers are K&Co, and the gray paper is also from Paper Studio, the ribbon is from my stash. I'm so excited on how well this came out. The only problem I had was getting the lace card stock to stick. I finally used spray adhesive on it and it worked for the most part.

The contents were:

Lemonade: To remind you that when life gives you lemons, to make lemonade;
A Paper Clip: To help you hold it all together when it seems like it’s falling apart;
A Stick of Gum: To remind you to stick together;
Pennies: To give you the extra cents (sense) everyone needs to know which battles are worth fighting and which are better ignored;
Candy Kisses: To share with each other and to say I LoveYou in a sweet way;
Tootsie Rolls: To help you remember to roll with the punches;
An Eraser: To remind you to be forgiving as everyone makes mistakes;
Toothpicks: To remind you to always pick out the good in your mate;
Lollipops: To help you lick your problems, no matter how many there may be;
A Gift Certificate: To use for something you didn’t get that you really can use.
