My Hello Kitty themed shoe box began with free band-aids from a CVS deal and a free toothbrush from a coupon. The fun thing is I have only paid for the shirt ($1) and the socks (20 cents) so far. I will be adding a few more things, but the total should still be only a few dollars.
My husband had found these shirts for $1 last fall and I decided I'd make skirts to match them. The flower fabric was donated by Red Thread Stitches and the trim and gingham fabric came from my mother-in-law's stash. I chose this fabric
because it had red in it like the shirt and yellow and orange that match the flip flops.
Along with the toothbrush and band-aids I added a washcloth and hair brush to the hygiene items I am including (soap will be added later). I bought these with the Kohl's gift card I won in a blog giveaway.
The little white kitty was donated along with dozens of other Avon Full o'Beans animals to my packing efforts. The tin with dominoes was purchased with the free Kohl's card and the puzzles were purchased on clearance at Walmart with a Visa Gift Card I won in a blog giveaway.
I made a little Hello Kitty DIY coloring book with free paper and cardboard. The ink was purchased with refunds.
These Hello Kitty flip flops were also purchased with the Kohl's gift card I won.
I think this little gal needs a pink bow in her hair so she looks more like Hello Kitty. I think I can do that with some ribbon scraps I have.
