Have you ever seen the boxes used at graduations or weddings? It’s a trend that allows the gift-givers to safely store cards for the recipients without them getting lost at an event. Well, I have a project idea for you today on how to decorate your own!
This project is for my son’s graduation this month, and I found a wooden box with handles at a local craft store. This box will be great for him to use for years to come!
I’ve chosen some CutCardStock papers that match his school colors, and I’m including some of the great Basis papers that are on sale this month!
Here is a video demo on how the box comes together:
As a shopping list, the papers I’ve chosen in this video demo are Basis Grey and Basis White, as well as Pop Tone Black Licorice and Pop Tone Wild Cherry Red. Truly any box will work, and if you wanted to use a shoebox or other style, you could even cover the box in CutCardStock papers as well.
The tools in the video are from We R Memory Keepers, and I’ve also used a varsity letter font from Cricut. Other tools you’ll need are a couple of wooden dowels, some twine, a hole punch and your choice of either tacky or hot glue.
My hope is that after the party is over, I’ll remove the word “cards” as a banner and my son can use it to store his graduation memorabilia. This style of box seemed very masculine – it almost reminded me of a toolbox!
What events do you have coming up? Have you considered making party supplies on your own? The CutCardStock papers are so versatile that, with a few simple tools, you can save money and make your own decorations.
I hope you enjoyed this party project today! Feel free to save this to a Pinterest board for future celebrations. Thanks for stopping by!
