I created this Graduation Announcement Keepsake Box as part of a campaign with Tiny Prints and LooksiSquare. All opinions are entirely my own.
It’s hard to believe it’s almost graduation season! I don’t know how you parents of high schoolers are keeping it together, my son is just graduating from kindergarten next month and already I’m a mess of tears. If you’re looking for a sweet but practical gift to give a graduate, look no further than this Graduation Announcement Keepsake Box. It’s a breeze to put together and can easily be customized with your child’s name or graduation date. Finally, the perfect place to put all those gorgeous graduation announcements!
We didn’t have amazing graduation announcements like these from Tiny Prints when I was in high school (hah, that statement made me feel old!) I’m absolutely amazed with the design options available, they even have matching envelopes and liners. Whether you child wants the gorgeous look of foil (seen above on these cards: Fantastic Graduate, Gleaming Success, and Elegant Academia) or classic letterpress (Pristine Lines and Stylish Student), Tiny Prints is sure to have a stylish design to match any student’s personality!
Graduation Announcement Keepsake Box
- Unfinished Picture Frame Box
- Graduation Plastic Confetti
- White Paint
- Mod Podge
- Craft Knife
Step One. Remove glass pane and paint the outside of the frame box. I would highly suggest not painting along the inside, especially the lip that slides into the box track. The paint might cause some issues with the tight fitting track. Allow box to dry completely.
Step Two. Apply small amounts of Mod Podge to each confetti piece and place in a pleasing pattern. Allow to dry completely before moving on to the next step. I highly suggest leaving it for at least a couple hours.
Step Four. When dry, use a sharp craft knife to cut through the Mod Podge and confetti pieces. Take your time and please, be careful! Remove the glass holders with a pair of pliers, reinsert glass pane, and secure with glue around the edge.
Once you’ve trimmed all the confetti pieces, you’re ready to gift to your favorite graduate! This project can be customized for any occasion or need. I’d love to see a wedding version of this to keep wedding cards in! How sweet would a baby shower one be too? Hope you enjoy!
