Who hasn’t order an expensive subscription box, from makeup ones to fitness one they are all pretty pricey. I was obsessed with meme box which is a box that was super cute with Korean hand picked items I loved meme boxes however they where pretty expensive and tiny. I was struggling coming up with my best friends birthday gift and than it hit when I was shopping at Marshalls, I could make my very own Bestie Box. Many people make birthday boxes and fill it with a bunch of goodies for the people the box is gifted to for example small accessories, makeup and sometimes-even food.
What you need to make your very own Bestie Box
- A large box or any size of your choice (check out Marshalls for cheap decorative boxes)
- Items your bestie loves
- Pick a theme (such as makeup, cooking items or a combo of things)
- Pictures to add
- Scrapbook paper
- Glitter unless your bestie hates glitter than don’t dare use glitter
- Festive balloons or balloons of your choice
- Letter cut outs
- Scissors and mod podge as needed
My bestie box included
- A tee shirt
- A mini scented candle
- A happy birthday soap (special for the occasion)
- Dry shampoo
- Semi shadow photo frame
- A giraffe figure (perfect to display on desk)
- Women’s health magazine
- Face Mask
- Confetti balloon
- Birthday Card
I decorated the top of box with my besties name in glitter letters and sealed with mod podge to protect the glitter from falling off. The inside of the lid read Bestie box, which was made with my besties favorite color and scarpbook pages. The inside of the box had my besties age with gold numbers and inside with different pieces of scrapbook pages with notes all sealed with mod podge just to keep it protected for longer. After decorating the bestie box was ready to be filled with the goods, I placed every thing in so everything could be visible lastly I filled up balloons with confetti and sprinkled confetti on the rest of the box and closed it shut and it was ready for my bestie to open.
Try making your own bestie box gift to your bestie for their birthday, or even Christmas or because you want to be an awesome bestie.
