I’m sure you’ve all seen the popular “boxes” you can order online now. Monthly subscriptions are available for everything from beauty supplies to pet care to organic goods. It’s a fun fad, I must admit. My parents sent me a few monthly boxes designed for college students while I was at school. It was always exciting to dig through the box & see what treasures they sent out that month! These boxes typically come with sample size items & maybe a couple full size as well. They hold small trinkets & cool new gadgets. If you don’t know what I’m talking about just google it! I see an ad on Facebook for some kind of box everyday.
So, I decided to create one for my friend Jordan’s birthday. I wanted to do a “Birthday Box” version, filled with her favorite things. I love the idea & plan to carry it over to many more birthdays! She blogged about it too over at Dreaming in Bubbles.
Here’s how I did mine…
I found all kinds of lovely birthday goodies!
The Target One Spot was a major help here. I can’t get enough of that place!
I’ll share how to make that ‘mint to be’ jar tomorrow!
I monogrammed the 2 mason jar tumblers with my silhouette using this tutorial.
You can find more information on these in this post.
I am so in love with these tumblers lately! They’re less than 5 bucks at Walmart. Win! They have plenty of other colors/sizes as well.
Back to the box…literally. You need to find a good sturdy box. Ideally, I wanted one with a top that would lift off or open up. But this is what I had & it seemed to work just fine. If your box isn’t plain you can cover it up with plain or decorative paper.
I wanted to dress up my box a bit, so I used some cute scrapbook paper & my Silhouette, of course.
I wrote out- #BIRTHDAYBOX. A little cheesy but that’s what you get on your birthday!
I glued the letters onto the box as straight as I could (I later noticed how not straight that was).
I punched a bunch of holes out of my leftover paper.
Then glued on the confetti.
Fill the box with some kind of filler & bury your treasures inside.
You’re ready to give!
This is such a thoughtful yet easy to pull together gift. I don’t think you can go wrong giving someone a cute little box brimming with their favorite things.
I think someone should create one for craft supplies! Maybe call it a creative box. Does that already exist?
Anyways, hope you liked it! Let me know if you make one!
