LUNCH BOX LOVENOTES
Print out these "Lunch box Lovenotes" on cardstock, cut them out with this cool straight edge tool and you're ready to go! If you want to print a couple of copies you can pack the same ones for siblings, or just rotate one set. I like to write a personal note on the back and reuse them throughout the year. There are eight pages for a total of 48 cards. I hope you and your kids enjoy!
