My tutorial is for the Graduation Box that I made for my son's graduation cards. I posted it a week or so back.

I made a card box for my son's graduation. I used 2 priority boxes and put the one over the other. (make sure that you save these boxes to use for mailing at a later date)
Then I used blue painters tape to tape the boxes together and to go along the outer edges because its just a touch bigger than 12 x 12, this makes a nice border for your papers.
I gathered the graduation themed papers together and used my atg gun to adhere them on to the box sides.
Next I took some of my son's photos and put those on the box sides along with graduation elements. Cut a slit along the top large enough to fit most envelopes.
This was a simple project and will be useful for his party.

Please take a peek, and then head over to the next blog.
If you like a tutorial, please try it out and make your own creation. Post your entries by June 14, 7 pm eastern, to be entered to win.
