Thrifting and Craftig for OCC Shoebox Stockpile Saturday ~ 3/11/2017

Here's what we've added to our Operation Christmas Child shoebox packing stash this week:
CVS Valentines Day clearance for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.

I didn't get anything too great at CVS's 90% off clearance, but I did get these cute Lenticular printed images-it has three images on each card-cute little addition to a box or pencil pack fillers for Pencil Granny & Friends for just about a penny each!  Plus a bar of soap I got a deal on.

I got this bag free to carry a purchase at a small local store, so it is now in the shoebox stash.

Stuffed animals to pack in an Operation Christmas Child shoebox.
My sister found some more like new stuffed animals at a local thrift with tag still attached

Crochet hats to donate to Operation Christmas Child shoebox packing.
My sister crocheted 6 Aunt Ida hats and attached the "Hand Made with Love tags" we designed.

Hand made pencil pouches for OCC shoebox packing.
My mom sewed 11 of these reversible pencil cases.

Spent from shoebox packing budget: $2.66

  • 135 Lenticular Valentines
  • 16 scratch Valentines
  • 1 bar soap
  • 1 mini tote bag
  • 3 stuffed animals
