DIY Chevron Graduation Card Box

It's graduation time again. How many of you out there are planning a graduation celebration?
A friend of mine asked if could make one for her daughters graduation party. She didn't want the same ol generic box you buy at the store, she wanted something unique and creative. So off to Michael's I went!

 I used my 40% off coupon and got this Paper Mache Box set for only $12.99!
Then made the cuts.

I used a hot glue gun to attach the chevron fabric to the boxes.

The place where her party is being held has dim lighting.
So, I had found this battery operated fiber optic wand and thought that would make the flower really stand out.

 I made a small slit in the top of the box to fish the wand through.

Then just glue the flower in place.

I also hot glued a ribbon around the center. Just to break the pattern up a bit.
And the blingy letter "D" came from the scrap book section.

Now isn't this better than buying that same ol generic card box?!

  1. Beautiful Shelly - love the black & white chevron patterned paper, the glittery monogram, and pretty white flower but the fibre optic wand added made this card box sing and dance!
