Get Well Banner

Recovering from an illness or injury is downright miserable and lonely. The other day, I was looking through an old box and found a sweet get well card, full of crayon drawings of balloons and flowers made by one of Jen's best friends. I had been cooped up for a week with bronchitis in elementary school, and her simple gesture was so meaningful and such a surprise. It's the little things that make you feel better when you're gaining back your strength.

I have a coworker who recently broke her leg, and is very allergic to flowers. Inspired by the many adorable band-aid cards on Pinterest, here was my alternative to a cheerful bouquet...

I started with five 2 inch x 2 inch blue squares. I used the small, dot band aid packaging for the beginning and end of the banner. I secured each square to the next with the adhesive ends of small band aids, and spelled out the message with scrapbook stickers. I spiced up my band-aid friends with some googly eyes and a heart sticker, and finished my banner with baker's twine and red pom poms.


I hope this helps to brighten her spirits!
