DIY Mother's Day Gift Box

With Easter in March this year, I feel like there's been a long stretch here with no holiday.  But we do have Mother's Day coming up in May, and I decided it's nice to have awhile to think about it, and get ready for it early.


I did a post on how to make your own gift boxes in December.  These cute boxes can be used for any occasion- Mother's Day especially.  If anyone deserves a dolled-up box, it's your mom.


These boxes are just the right size to hold a nice gift card, jewelry, or any other small gift you may have in mind for your mom this year. 

Make your box, add some cute ribbon, a flower, and a name to it.  Then put your gift in and fill it with some fun shredded paper.  Then get ready for the little surprise at the bottom of the box.  



I like to add a little message.  This time I added a definition of mother that I found last year, and loved.  So not only will your mom get a great gift in a darling box, but she'll have a little extra bonus in the bottom of the box.  If you attach the quote with just a bit of tape it will come right off and she can keep it somewhere she'll see it.  I love adding small, unexpected touches.

Click here for the full tutorial on how to make your DIY gift box.  These are so easy to make!  If you can fold and cut, you can  make these.  I love experimenting with different papers, ribbons, and toppers.  So many color combinations to use! 


What are some of your favorite Mother's Day gift ideas?
Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you found a little something worth your time.
