I just made this box from the DIY package, an instant comfort it does provide! Things haven't been going all that well lately so it's exactly what I needed today! 
And yes co-incidentally my nailpolish does match the lettering on the box ;) 
(Color;Turquoise & Caicos by Essie)

Comfort Pocket boxes are by Kim Welling - she sells different DIY packages and ready made ones! Be sure to check out her Etsy shop! 
She has a lot of other really cool stuff too! 

We've got these really cute cups & saucers as well
and it's a joy to drink coffee from them :)
