Celebrating a graduation? Make this fun DIY Graduation Gift Toolkit For Making Major Life Decisions!
My cousin is graduating from college this weekend. As part of the celebrating she had a dinner party with board games. We really like to play games in our family. So what better for a DIY graduation gift than something that incorporates a game?
My cousin is getting her bachelors degree in music, she’s a violist, and then will be attending graduate school in the fall. Finishing college means lots of big life decisions are looming, so I think this rock, paper, scissors toolkit gift will come in handy.
Littlest was also highly amused by our DIY gift. He loves playing rock, paper, scissors and has been known to use the game to make his own decisions.
I started by making a DIY origami box. I chose a striped purple paper for the box top because her college color was purple. Then I went with a sheet of white paper for the bottom of the box. I used 12″x12″ paper for my box.
The other supplies I needed were some rocks and a pair of scissors. I got a pair of small purple scissors to fit the college color theme and then used a craft river rock.
I also needed some paper. I used a sheet of standard lined paper cut down proportionally and then laminated the paper with clear contact paper. I thought laminating the paper would make it more sturdy and help it last longer.
My toolkit also needed a label: Toolkit – For Making MAJOR Life Decisions. I typed up the label and printed it, sizing it to fit on the box that I made.
You can assemble your box a few different ways. One is to fill it with paper filling.
Another idea is to make a smaller box to put inside the larger box. For the smaller box I used 8″x8″ paper. The smaller box could be filled with money or other treats.
Then I cut a piece of felt the same size as the box. Place the felt on top of the filling and then top with the rock, paper, and scissors.
Your gift is assembled and ready to use! If you want you could glue down the items so that it is easier to transport. This also makes the gift more of something to look at than play with.
Get ready to use your toolkit for making your next big decision!
