Another Box - Change of Address Kit

My parents have moved into aged care recently and to help them to update their mail with their new address details, I made them a Change of Address Kit. I have used some Basic Grey paper to decorate the cover and 2 Bazzill Buttons and some string as the closure (the ribbon is actually just covering up a join in the paper - as I only had one 12x12 sheet of the patterned paper).

Inside there is a large heavy duty acetate pocket, which holds 20 pre-printed A5 size letters with all the change of address details (Mum can just fill in the recipient/company and any other details and send it off). I have also included a Change of Address list so they can take a note of what ones they have sent off.

On the other side there is an acetate pocket to hold envelopes, another to hold the stamps and a pen holder. I have also added a post-it note holder which is attached with velcro - that way Mum can remove and use (note a good idea is to put the soft velcro side on the part that is being removed).

Hopefully this will make it a bit easier for them, as there has been a lot for them to cope with over the past few weeks.
