I had a lot of fun coming up with Louisiana/Mardi Gras items to put in this box. It made me a little homesick, to be honest. We weren't able to go to any parades this year, but this made up for it a bit.
First I lined the inside of the box with yellow, green, and purple construction paper like so:
I then decorated each flap with one word of the phrase, "Laissez les Bon Temps Rouler" like so:
Next I filled the box with some Louisiana signatures, like these Zapp's potato chips, Tabasco sauce, and Moon Pies like they throw at the parades.
I also threw in some Clif bars, and some homemade Banana Bread in a jar. Monkey contributed her own letters and drawings before we threw some Mardi Gras beads on top and shipped it off. I'm sure J will enjoy his little bit of Mardi Gras in a box.
