We recently had a celebration of life for my husband’s Great Aunt and Great Uncle. I made some packets to hold a memorial pamphlet and keepsake using the CTMH My Creations Paper Pouch (large size).
I added a pressed flower sticker to each and stamped their first initials. Jeanne and Winston were married 73 years and were very happy together. They passed within two months of each other. I made the memorial pamphlet using a greeting card program to make a quarter fold card and added an old photo and a newer one inside with some quotes and clip art.
The large paper pouch is just the right size for the pamphlet. The paper stamped very nicely. The butterfly stamp has a sentiment included that says “Love as delicate as a butterfly’s wings as strong as the circle of life.” It was so appropriate. I used the Lagoon stamp pad for the aqua color. My sister-in-law purchased the little bag of pewter mementos online.
We had a nice celebration of their lives. They both were in there 90’s and had full lives. I was happy to help with making these mementos for the family who gathered. I hope that you, my readers, don’t have a loss in your family, but if you do I hope this idea is of use to you.
