Make it Pinteresting Monday: We Go Together Like PB&J Snailmail *Giveaway*

I absolutely looove snailmail. I love sending snailmail and I love receiving snailmail. Checking the mail is one of my favorite hobbies. And after classes I'm usually at the post office purchasing stamps or sending off packages.

And guess what? You can win some snailmail by entering the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post. 
While browsing this week's Pinterest finds for #MakeitPinterestingMondays, I was inspired by this lovely Box of Sunshine idea from Happy-Go-Lucky...

 and I knew a snailmail giftbox was what I wanted to create. 

As a student, PB&Js are often considered a main food group. They are true convenient comfort food at its finest. So why not put together a few PB&J items as a snailmail gift and make someone's day a bit brighter?

As you all know, I'm. obsessed. with. snacks. And I have recently been intrigued by Target's Archer farms PB&J snacking trailmix. It definitely inspired this week's Make it Pinteresting Monday snailmail package. 

And what's as fun as Target's PB&J trail mix? Trader Joe's PB&J chocolate bars. You guys, these chocolate bars are wonderful! I can't walk out of TJ's without one. I'm team PB&J.

I also tossed some individual Jif pb snacking cups into the box. Because pb is pretty fantastic on its own too. 

The fun thing about this snailmail box is that you can personalize it in so many ways. The PB&J possibilities are endless. PB&J t-shirts, earrings, stickers, snacks. Peanut butter & jelly is kinda a big deal. 

Tuck a little note into the box...

 and send off to your best friend, a new friend, old friend, neighbor. 
They will be super smiley upon receiving this snailmail package at their front door. 

and finally, let me tell you a little PB&J secret....
Heat your PB&J sandwiches in the microwave 11 seconds for a warm, gooey treat. Enjoy with a glass of cold milk.
Maybe you can scribble that little secret on the back of the note you tuck into the box because let me tell you, 11 second PB&Js are just wonderful! 

Now for the Make it Pinteresting Monday details:

My thoughts: I thought the Box of Sunshine from Happy-Go-Lucky was absolutely sunshiny and would totally make my day. You know what else makes my days? PBandJs. I thought it would be a super fun idea to combine the two into a fun snailmail box for family, friends, and neighbors. 

Easy? Oh yes! Just gather a few of your favorite PB&J items and BOOM! Instant snailmail package. 

Changes I made: I used Target's Archer Farms Peanut Butter and Jelly trailmix, Trader Joe's PB&J chocolate bars, and Jif To-Go cups for this week's #MakeitPinterestingMonday
