I love the crisp, cold weather. It is such a nice change from the sweaty heat of summer. One thing that goes hand in hand with the cold weather is dry skin. I don’t like that! However, I am always prepared for cracked, dry skin with natural products from Burts Bees. In fact, I use Burts Bees all year round. I need the all-natural ingredients to moisturize and keep my hands smooth. They are ideal for work when I am washing my hands a dozen times per flight!
Just in time for the 30th anniversary of Burt’s Bees, I thought I would make a craft that is perfect for a small gift to a friend, neighbor or loved one. It is a simple gift and card, but shows you appreciate them and are thinking about them.
Burt’s Bees has a number of hand products to choose from to go with this homemade card. They have skin creams, Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Crème, Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream, and so much more! I found a ton of Burts Bees hand products and other health products at Walmart.
How to Make this Card:
First, simply gather your supplies. All you need is some construction paper of various colors, scissors, a pencil and markers.
Have someone trace your hand print on to the paper. Or if you are talented, you can do the tracing. TIPS: If you are making it for a child’s teacher, use your child’s hand print! If you are making it for your spouse, add a special touch by drawing on your wedding band. Get creative, you get the idea!
Once your hand is traced, use scissors to carefully cut the outline of your hand.
Now it’s time to write your note. There are a ton of “Hand” catch phrases. They can work on anyone from an acquaintance, friend to the love of your life! Here are some ideas.
Some creative “hand” puns:
“I’ve gotta hand it to you” (fill in the compliment)
“Thanks for your handy work”
“I am thankful for your helping hand”
“I appreciated you lending a hand with (fill in the blank)”
“I can’t keep my hands off you” (romantic)
“Me and you go hand in hand” (friendship, romantic)
And many more… I am sure you can think of some others!
Once you are finished with your hand card, then choose your favorite Burts Bees hand product and put it all in a small gift bag. (My favorite is the Burt’s Bees Hand Salve, a farmer’s friend. It works wonders on dry, chaffed skin. I love it on my hands, feet, and elbows!
The great thing about this basic card and gift is that it is simple and sweet. It is an inexpensive gift and an easy-to-make card, yet it is special because it shows you are thinking about someone and took the time to show them some love!
