Happiness Box DIY

Hi everyone,

This was one of my favorite gifts to make! It was so easy and so thoughtful at the same time. This present was for my sisters 20th birthday and she totally loved it!

I wrote some happiness quotes on each paper and rolled it up. That way she can take one out whenever she feels like it.

What you need:

  • A Tin Shaped Box (I got mine from the dollar store)
  • Box Cover Paper (I got mine from the dollar store as well)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Pretty Scrapbooking Paper
  • Scissors
  • Jute Twine
  • Happiness Quotes

I took the ‘box cover’ or whatever you want to call it and wrote ‘Happiness Box’ with a white Sharpie.IMG_5108 - Copy.JPG

Then I took the hot glue gun and glued the burlap on the box.IMG_5111.JPGNow take your pretty Scrapbooking or Construction Paper and cut in in different sized papers. First of all write quotes of whatever you want on there. I used happy quotes. You can find a couple suggestions down below.IMG_5107

Now roll them all up and use some jute twine to fasten them up. You could also use some lace instead of jute twine. Finally stick them all in the box and the happy reading can begin 🙂IMG_5108.JPGIsn’t it adorable?IMG_5113What happiness quotes did you find?
