Trendy Twine ~ Graduation Hat Gift Box

Happy Saturday!  Today is my day to post on the Trendy Twine blog.  This month is all about graduations, so I created this sweet gift box to share with you!
I started with a 3x3x3 kraft box and covered the sides with paper from DCWV's Chalk Party stack.  I thought the confetti on it was a lot of fun :)  Then I cut 2  4.5" squares and adhered them to the top of the box to resemble the mortarboard hat.  The tassel is made with Midnight Trendy Twine.
This shot is to show how I cut out a curve on the box so it would assure easy opening!

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
