Stress Relief Toolkit

A friend of mine is having a tough time, his whole life is currently undergoing major changes, so I thought he might need some help with his stress levels.

This is the inside of the toolkit and as you can see it contains many sheets of Bubble Wrap with a little poem inside which rhymes about coping with stress and not to overuse it as counselling may be required. If you would like the little poem just let me know!


Here's what you need to make this card:

  • Yellow cardstock - although it can any colour you have in your stash!
  • "Mans" backing paper from Cardmaking magazine, it's also available on the internet so you have it forever if needed
  • Scoring Tool to make four separate lines - slightly bigger than the bubble wrap you're going to use
  • Fold the cardstock into a 'wallet' style shape
  • Print the poem and stick to the inside top of the wallet
  • Use two brads to hold down the bubble wrap to the wallet
  • I also used DST on the top and bottom back of the bubble wrap for security
  • Add a simple mirri square, with rounded corners (Dovecraft punch again!) to the outside of the wallet
  • I put white cardstock square and matted and layered it on the silver mirri card and then wrote "Enjoy" using an orange Glitter Pen (Sainsburys) to match the cardstock

Now you can pop until your hearts content - go on, you know you want to!

He's gonna love it - I ration myself, as directed, when popping the one you sent me Karen! Ain't there days though when you could cheerfully pop the whole lot in one go!

Happiness is a choice. You can choose to be happy. There's going to be stress in life, but it's your choice whether you let it affect you or not. See the link below for more info.

Life is a battle, if you don't know how to defend yourself then you'll end up being a loser. So, better take any challenges as your stepping stone to become a better person. Have fun, explore and make a lot of memories.

Can I simply say what a reduction to search out someone who actually knows what theyre speaking about on the internet. You positively know how one can carry a problem to light and make it important. More people need to learn this and perceive this facet of the story. I cant consider youre not more well-liked since you positively have the gift. online casino bonus
