You know you need some watermelon gift boxes in your life! Seriously though, these boxes are actually what started the whole watermelon week thing! I absolutely adore berry boxes and when I saw these PINK and green (and tons of other colors!) at Michaels I was like “hmm yeahh…I need these…” and stealthily threw them in my cart. I don’t really know why I was stealthy, it wasn’t like Stella was gonna say “Mom, are you kidding me, more party stuff? You do not need that!” But I just felt like maybe my inner voice was saying that and so I was like, look away inner self, look away.
And aren’t you glad I did? I mean, these were BORN to look like watermelons!
- pink and/or green boxes //
- opposite color of tissue paper //
- a black sharpie //
- green or pink fillings/goodies/candies
I used my permanent maker to draw little tear shaped seeds all over the pink tissue paper and the pink berry boxes. I loved using both colors and doing inside out watermelons but you could just use one! It’s totally up to you!
Fill them with pink and/or green goodies (I used lollipops, taffy, jelly bellies, sixlets, and wafer cookies.)
You could also just put all the treats you’re planning to serve in these for your guests instead of using only as a party favor. Or you could give this as a gift! What a fun themed present that doesn’t require a lot of work on your part!
One more watermelon post this week guys, hooray!
