Hydrant Box and Card Set


My sister loves animals. She is generous enough to open her home to fostering dogs – something I don’t think I could do as I’d get WAY too attached and would probably end up living with dozens of animals!

She asked me a while back if I’d like to donate to a silent auction the rescue group she works with is putting on. OF COURSE!

So, I fashioned this set of cards and a super cute fire hydrant box. My Aunt sat with me while I made this and just laughed at me as I oohed and aahed over this creation.

I won’t bore you with all the details but I did make a little PDF of how I made the box. The cards are simple and pretty self explanatory, I think. Each box has enough space to hold 12 of these cards with envelopes. It’s snug but it works.

Have a great day!

  2. Carrie! Thank you so much for your kind generosity!
    I, too, have a dear friend that takes in animal rescue dogs…she has also been active in the organization of our nearly one year old Animal Rescue here in town.
    I am going to make one for her and one for the lady that runs the Animal Rescue.

    I’d LOVE to send one of these fire hydrants with a card with a dalmation on it for my firefighter hopeful son in California! HA!
    Have you done a dalmation dog with punches???
    hint, hint

    thanks, again!
