I got this GREAT idea from the forums here and other examples...thanks to all of you!!! The list of contents is from the lists I found in the various forums or posted pictures. The inside green paper with contents is chalkboard looking paper. Looks good IRL. No stamping!!! :-) I used Super 77 spray adhesive and it worked great!
