Last week in the checkout line at the Costco Business center, one of the hard-working staff shouted out, “I have a brand new shipment of hand sanitizer, one per customer!” I figured, why not?
We all know that washing hands with soap and water is the best way to keep your them clean, but hand sanitizer comes in handy when you can’t.
Then I read that postal workers and other delivery drivers were running out of hand sanitizer and it got me thinking: I could share some of the bounty.
It’s a simple gesture to say thank you to our mail carriers, UPS and Amazon drivers, as well as those who are Door Dashing or Instacarting our food. If you are lucky enough to have a stash of hand sanitizer, it’s easy to make small packages for these essential workers.
Start with a big bottle and little bottles. (I found these squeeze bottles online.)
Print out the PDF from my blog post today (see the package below) and dress up your tags any way you like. You can ink blend with Distress Inks or use Copic markers, whatever floats your boat. Then tie one onto a bottle and leave it out for your mail carriers or food delivery person.
Click on this image to download the PDF. It’s in a zipped file and will need to be unzipped before you can print. Open it with Adobe Acrobat. I recommend printing on an ink jet printer if you want to add any inks to the tags.
Trim just inside the tag outlines and punch a small hole through the top of the tag. Add some string and tie it to a small bottle.
Here’s to the people out there who cannot stay home.
