So I had to do 3 different boxes. One I painted black and it turned grey after it dried, it also was too small so we scrapped that. Then I used construction paper and covered another box wrote boy girl in glitter and it ran all down the box, have I mentioned I'm not crafty so this is our final product. It's not perfect but I made it with my babies.

It's very cute!! What did you guys plan for the inside? Is that how a gender reveal box works?

Ps.) I am not crafty AT ALL either!

Your story made me laugh!! I love the idea, I wish I had thought of that for this baby. I just did the boring old cake reveal.

That's a great idea. I like it. I think gender reveal ideas are cool. I am not sure if I would be able to hold out. I had a hard time holding out when we gave picture frames to the grandparents for Christmas to "announce" that they were going to be grandparents!

My friend posted pictures of her 2 year old holding pink balloons on Facebook. All she did was say they were at their ultrasound appointment and then a couple of hours later, post the picture. It was a cute idea, too!

Super cute! Let us know how the big reveal goes! I was hoping to do balloons as well to announce to the girls. I'm guessing balloons are the new cake. It's funny how these things go around!

I love the third one, especially because all of your other kids helped you make it.

I love gender reveals like this. It's a great way to get the kids involved and excited. We opted out this time, b/c Savvy had no clue.

Your box is perfect, because you made it as a family. Can't wait to see the reveal pics. I stalk you on FB
