Graduation Gift Box Keepsakes - with Blitsy
Start with a round box like this. This is a small 4x4 box - but boxes come in many sizes.
Paint entire box ( inside and out) with acrylic paint. I found a foam brush is fast and really gets into the edges of the box perfectly.
Add washi tape, glitter tape or ribbon as desired. I layered ribbon over gold glitter tape on the black hat. I added extra glue to my trim so the glitter tape and ribbon stay in place for years to come.
Decorate box with sequin stars if desired. I thought they added a nice decorative touch without over embellishing. Plus they are great for any grad.
Cut a 5x5 square from chipboard. This will be the top of the hat. Paint to match the box.
I used a small tassel - like one used for a book mark. I cut the tassels loop in one place to create a longer string for attaching to the hat.
