Graduation Card Box

This is the graduation card box I made for my son Alex. My friend Vicki at made the card that says Alex on the side of the box. Isn't it fabulous? It will go in a memory book after the party but for now, I think its perfect for his card box. (thank you Vicki)
I took 2 USED flat rate boxes and taped them together and its the perfect size. I used the blue painters tape all around the corners, and used 12 x 12 papers to decorate the boxes. I used a few of his photos too. The thing at the top is a piece of mat board folded in half to top the box. There is a slit on top of the box to insert the cards. I'm really happy with the way it turned out.
