DIY Graduation gift card box

I told you last week that I am helping decorate my nephew’s high school graduation party. I get so excited about pulling it together…I may have a sickness….My sister in law doesn’t enjoy it as much—so she was thrilled when I volunteered;)

I made this sweet graduation gift card box…for about $5 and a bit of time. I thought that if you have any grads in your house this year you may want to put one of these together too:)

I found the inspiration from a blogger (actually I found the Pin and then found the blogger:) She may it sound really easy…and it was. I changed mine up a little bit to use what I had on hand.

Here is what you will need to put this together:

  • a square box (I had mine, but a craft store sells them in the paper mache aisle) 10×10 or so is great
  • sharp razor knife
  • ruler
  • pencil
  • hot glue
  • spray paint of choice
  • 2 embroidery floss (to make the tassel)
  • button
  • one piece of foam board
  • 12×12 scrapbook paper in color of box

Here is how I made mine:

  • spray painted my box in dark green and left dry
  • cut a piece of foam board 12 by 12
  • glue paper on the top
  • measure and cut a large slit for the cards
  • make the tassel by wrapping floss around a chair

  • cut the floss at one end
  • fold in half and tie at the loop to make the tassel
  • hot glue on top of box
  • hot glue button on top
