DIY Graduation Card Box
My daughter is graduating High schoolthis year and I thought it would be fun making her a cute card box for her graduation party.
Here is the finished look of this cute card box.
I bought a pine box at Hobby Lobby and stained the whole box. I wear gloves and used a white towel to wipe on the stain.
Here is the first coat of grey stain. It didn’t change the color much and still looked .....blah.
So I did a little experiment and with a small craft paint brush wiped on the Rustoleum brown aged glaze I had on hand. Now I was really starting to like the look.
Here’s a picture of the inside with the glaze applied.
For the second part I new I wanted a rustic look to the box. So, I bought 2 types of lace, pink ribbon since that’s the color we’re using to decorate with, and tiny clothes pins. The letters are on brown card stock cut into circles and I used my Cricut for the letters.
I hot glued the first piece of lace to the box and checked placement of letters. I still felt like I needed to add more.
Here I am testing out where I wanted the next piece of lace and ribbon to go. I hot glued the pink ribbon to the lace then hot glued the lace to the box.
The extra circle I made was for a Thank you sign to hang off the box. I used scraps of lace and ribbon and my Cricut again for the letters.
Once again here is the finished box!
