University Survival Kit


My boyfriend went away to university at the weekend, and it is his birthday today, so I wanted him to be able to take his presents with him and then see him open them on Skype. One of his gifts was a ‘University Survival Kit’, which I have been working on for a long time.

I found a great box with a magnetic lid and covered it in coloured papers. I then used washi tapes with numerical designs to seal the edges. On the front I stuck university themed stickers – a crest, mortar board and diploma. I then cut letters out of black card to make the heading on the lid.DSCN1590

Inside the lid I used sticker letters for the birthday message, and added a ’20 today’ badge. I filled the box with things that I considered to be uni essentials, and bits I thought he might have forgotten. It included medicines, sweets, hot chocolate sachets, soap, stationary, pins and sticky pads, instant noodles and a debating card game.
