DIY Graduation Pillow Boxes by Juliana


Welcome to day #2 of our DIY Week!

Need some darling graduation party favors?  Juliana Michaels has created the perfect set for you!  I love the image of the wise owl for a graduation project.  So adorable! 

Juliana took SRM's Graduation DIY Kit and tweaked it to create this project. You can create 12 party favors or gift boxes using this kit.  Everything you need is in the box!

First, Juliana cut the owls from various colors of cardstock using her Silhouette.  You can use any color to customize it to your school colors.

She then layered and assembled the owls and adhered them to the front of a SRM Medium Pillow Box. You get 12 of these in your kit.

Juliana cut "Happy Graduation" from SRM's Take 2 Graduation sticker borders, adhered them to a strip of chipboard and then attached them to the front of each owl.

She added Twinery Twine to match the cardstock on each of her owls.

On the inside of each box Juliana cut a piece of white cardstock to the size of the inside of the box and embossed it using her Cuttlebug.  She used this to "hide" the backside of the owl which is taped to the front of the box.  She finished it off with a "Congrats You Did It" sticker to the back of the box.

What an adorable idea!  You still have plenty of time to create your graduation favors or gift boxes.  This idea is sure to please.  Just tuck in some sweet treats for a favor and a check, gift card or a stash of cash if you use it as a gift box.
