Nurse Graduation Gift Box
I was asked to make gift boxes for several nursing students who will be graduating in a few weeks. I saw this svg file called “Nurse Gift Box” from Dreaming Tree and thought it was perfect!. The file includes a caduceus for the front of the “prescription bottle” part of the box (sample below), but I created the fake label for each box instead that could be customized for each graduate who is to receive the gift. (It wasn’t obvious to me at first that the box was supposed to be a prescription bottle, and the label seemed to make it clearer. I also thought it made it more graduation-y!)
This file could be purchased separately or as part of the “First Responders” set which also includes cards, a fire fighter box, and a police officer box. I resized the file to fit on 8 1/2 x 11 inch card stock and used my Silhouette electronic die cutting machine to cut out the pieces. There’s a video tutorial that shows how the pieces go together. (There’s also a video on the Dreaming Tree site that shows how it could be customized with school colors and a “congrats” die cut instead of the caduceus.)
The box, without the lid, is 4 1/2 inches high and 3 1/4 inches wide.
I had a little trouble, at first, finding colored card stock that looked like a prescription bottle, so I created a white one as a back-up option. As mentioned above, the file came with the caduceus which I really like in red on the white box.
There are quite a few samples of fake prescription labels online, and I used the one I found HERE (and a bit of cutting and pasting in Printshop) to create mine. Here’s a closer look at my sample.
The card stock I used for this project is Core’dinations Valentia, white, and Recollections Red.
Thanks for checking out my project!
