Today is a day of remembrance, and a time to thank all of those who have served our country. Past and present, and future, the word thank you doesn’t seem to be enough. Many people have given so much of themselves, to work tirelessly to preserve our freedom and protect our country. Saying thank you doesn’t seem to be enough.

Today on 9/11 we take a moment to remember those at the World Trade Center NY in 2001, who lost their lives that day, and the families they left behind. We take another moment to honor all of the individuals who helped that day, and who are, or who have served our country. Today we remember.

In honor of all these individuals and their families My Time Made Easy ™ LLC and Paper Sweetieshas organized a Blog Hop with *NEW* products & projects to inspire you to create gifts for our Troops, or that special someone!

Please see what all the following designers have made using the *NEW* products:

Tough Tank Pretty Packaging Template

Available in PDF, SVG, GSD, DXF, WPC

Completed Project Size:

4 3/4 Inches Tall

6 1/2 Inches Wide

7 1/2 Inches Long

This was designed at the request of, and in the honor of my brother Craig, who served many years in the U.S. Army! He wanted a realistic version of the “real deal” to honor his time spent serving our country!

Of course I was up for the challenge, as I think it is an excellent way to honor our troops.

This truly makes the perfect personalized package 😀

 How fun is this?! Note: The top of the tank rotates 360 degrees!

The top also comes off the tank, so you can package all sorts of gift items inside the tank.

Details: I designed this collection and used the Tough Tank Template as seen here, with the Camouflage paper. I added the tag from the Made in the U.S.A. Digital Stamp Set, all included in the Made in the USA. It was customized with the name G. Avery, using the alphabet in the set. It is for my brother’s son. I actually made two, one for each of his sons.

I also did the name on the Dog Tag image in the set, which I used to wrap up the Army Men I am sending his boys. They are so into them of course 😀 I am adding some water grenade balloons and of course candy 😀

Now you too can easily re-create this Tough Tank to create your own customized gift package. The perfect container to package up gifts for any of our Troops, maybe for sending a special care package, a great gift option for someone who served, or is serving in the military, or maybe that special child in your life who enjoys playing with Army men, and things of similar nature. Makes an excellent party favor or centerpiece too!

Be sure you see what all the designers have done for you, and the *NEW* goodies Debbie has created for her new company Paper Sweeties!

I hope that you take a moment to thank someone for their service to serving our country! There are SO MANY organizations that you can send cards and care packages for our troops, so I recommend you find one to support or in your area 😀

I have found this one A Million Thanks, but you can find your own, or if you know of an organization please link it here or on our Facebook Page!
