A Little Box of Hope

Day 17 of 21 Days of Creativity- DIY Dorm Week

Today’s DIY Dorm project is something that you can use on the daily basis: A Little Box of Hope. College can get rough at times and you need encouragement to get through it. With this project you will always have reassurance right at your fingertips.

For this DIY, you will need a small box; scrapbook paper, cardstock, stickers or anything to decorate the box; and plain paper. I used a gift box and scrapbook paper from Michaels Arts & Crafts. I decided to keep my design simple, but you can embellish your box however you like.

Take the plain paper and write (or type) words of encouragement, inspirational quotes, prayers and/or scriptures on them. Cut your messages from the paper, fold them in half and place them inside the box. Feel free to add new messages to your box over time.

Keep your Little Box of Hope on your desk or near your bedside. Whenever you have a day where nothing seems to be going right, pull out your box and take out one of the folded pieces of paper. I guarantee you’ll find the hope you need!

Take 15 minutes today to read, write down and meditate on this scripture: “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:8
