(perfect for any occasions)


Hello Everyone!
I'm really excited to share with you my super easy DIY gift boxes. They are not just cute but they are also super easy and fun to make. Can you feel the excitement right now? Talking about excitement, Are you excited for upcoming Mother's Day? If you are missing that perfect gift boxes for your Mom or for friends birthday? This is the right place for you. I'll show you how easy it is to make that perfect gift box not only for Mother's Day but for any special occasions.
The idea behind this DIY gift boxes, is, when I can't find a box for my Personalized Key Chain that I'm planning to give to my friends. So, when I saw this empty soap box, the idea is just right on. I traced the pattern into the card stock and I realized how perfect it is. I made two more in different colors and add some touch by wrapping the center part of the box with scrapbook paper. Whoala! I'm pretty excited and happy with the results and of course I'm stoked to share it here on my blog. This is also a perfect bonding time with your kiddies or friends...:)
I would say, perfect box for cute little things like bracelet, earrings, key chains, souvenirs and even favors. I've listed few of gift ideas below for upcoming Mother's Day that you could buy or make to go along with this cute gift boxes.  Keep it simple and creative. Let's make every occasions and extra special one. ( wink) Check out my super easy peasy tutorial below...

Notes:

Things you'll need
Card stock- any color or design you have in hand.
Colorful wrapping paper or scrapbook paper
scissors
Empty box of soap- for pattern
Ruler
Glue
Ribbons/ embellishment- ( optional )

Directions
1.) Trace the empty box of soap into a card stock for a desire pattern. Cut the edges to remove unused card stock. ( Tips- don't throw away the unused card stock, used it as gift tags.)
2.) Fold and then cut the edges of the pattern.
3.) Slide the scissor onto the crease of the card stock to emphasize the pattern and get that smooth edges.
4.) Glue the box on the side and on the bottom. Let is set for couple minutes until it sets.
5.) Leave the top open.. ( Refer the photo above # 5 )
6.) Done! It's time to embellish this boxes. I keep mine cute and simple by using colored scrapbook paper. Simply cut the scrapbook paper and glued it all around the gift boxes.

Gift Ideas:

I'm going to put Personalized Beaded Key chain on this gift boxes. The idea is put some tissue paper on the bottom, Put the Key Chain, add more tissue paper on top. You can either wrap it ribbons or you can just simple glue the top of the box. I also made homemade bread for them to take home. I'll be posting the recipe of the bread on my food blog soon,:)

Also beaded bracelets and earrings are perfect gift ideas. I actually have some beaded tutorial here on my blog if you like to check them out for bracelet, I have  Lattice Beaded Bracelet for tutorial click HERE, and Crossing Path Beaded Bracelet tutorial.
For Earrings- Dangle Earrings is my first choice, also Hug and Kisses are super cute!

Aside from DIY beaded crafts, you can also just get a small cute figurines, or a nice necklace will do. I'm out of gift ideas right now. ( hahaha ) Do you have anything on mind? Please share your thoughts. I love to know what are your plans on Mother's Day.:)
