What Make Gender Reveal Party Fun
A big gender reveal box is a fun and creative way for expecting parents to announce the sex of their child. It’s also a great way for you to surprise your soon-to-be-born baby with an early birthday present!
I recently asked some moms about how they made their own gender reveal boxes, and here are the best tips I got from them.
It all starts with a simple Google search. You can find lots of websites that sell DIY gender reveal boxes online, but it will take you at least a few hours to make one yourself.
So if you’re not into doing things yourself, you could always buy one ready-made. Here you have several options:
1) Buy a pre-made gender reveal box kit online or in any craft store.
2) Craft your own gender reveal box using paper as material.
3) Go to a local party store and purchase a gender reveal box.
4) Use cardboard boxes to create your own custom gender reveal box.
So, let’s get started on making your own gender reveal box. Here are four steps to follow:
Step 1: Decide what kind of materials you want to use.
There are different kinds of gender reveal boxes available, so choose whichever type you like the most based on your preference. A gender reveal box for a boy might be very masculine while a gender reveal box for a girl will be more feminine and colorful.
You can easily go to your local store and ask them which kind of design suits your style. If you already have a color scheme in mind, just check out their selection of gender reveal boxes.
Step 2: Find a cardboard box.
When choosing the right size of your gender reveal box, remember that you need room for the contents inside and enough space to hold the gender reveal balloon. The height should be just right since it has to fit the gender reveal balloon.
If you’re planning to use a plain colored cardboard box, then you can skip this step. But if you plan to use a box with patterned designs, then you’ll definitely need to cut off part of the lid to expose the pattern.
Step 3: Cut the lid of the box.
The lid of the box is the front cover of your gender reveal box. Before cutting it, make sure that you remove any protective stickers or labels on top of the lid.
Next, decide where you’d like to place the hole for the gender reveal balloon. Remember to leave a gap between the hole and the edge of the lid, so your balloon won’t pop out when you inflate it.
Once you’ve decided where you’d like to place the hole, start by marking it out with a pen. Then carefully cut around the mark you made.
Don’t forget to leave a small opening at the bottom of the box for air to escape. To minimize the risk of popping up the balloon accidentally during transport, put a piece of tape over the hole.
Step 4: Prepare the content of the box.
Now that you have your gender reveal box, it’s time to fill it up with the contents you would like to put inside. If you’re going to include a balloon, then don’t forget to add in a helium tank.
Also, make sure that the color of the balloon matches the theme of your gender reveal box. For example, if you’re making a boy’s gender reveal box, then you can put in a blue balloon.

Remember to wrap each item separately before putting it in the box. Also, keep things in order. If you want to add a toy, first put in the balloon and then attach it to the toy afterward.
Step 5: Put everything inside the box.
Finally, it’s time to finish filling up your gender reveal box. After that, place everything back in its original position. Now, seal the box with packing tape.
And there you have it! Your gender reveal box is now done. Congratulations on having a successful pregnancy!
But wait…there’s still something missing…a little gift for your baby!
Here are three other ways to surprise your new baby with a cute birthday gift without spending much money:
1) Put together an activity book
This is a great idea if you’re expecting a baby boy or girl. You can create a gender-specific activity book for your baby and write down activities that he/she likes to do such as playing with toys or coloring.
2) Create a special personalized blanket
Another good option for boys is to make a blanket that says “Boys” on it. You can do this by sewing two identical blankets with contrasting colors. Then, sew the words “boys” onto the blanket using the same color thread you used for the main fabric. Finally, iron the thread so it looks nice and neat.
3) Give your baby a bottle warmer
Bottle warmers are a popular gift among parents nowadays because they help prevent babies from getting cold after feeding. They look really cool and come in different styles, so you can pick one that matches your gender reveal box’s theme.
Congratulations, you’ve successfully created your own gender reveal box! Now, all you have to do is to wait patiently for your baby to arrive.
What’s even cooler than creating your own gender reveal box? Why not combine the two concepts to make a gender reveal balloon?
Here’s another tip on how to combine your gender reveal box with a gender reveal balloon:
Step 1: First, prepare a gender reveal box.
Follow the instructions above to create your own gender reveal box.
Step 2: Next, buy a gender reveal balloon.
Make sure that the balloon’s color matches the theme of your gender reveal box.
Step 3: Once your gender reveal box is finished, tie the string to the balloon.
Then, tie the balloon to the box’s ribbon. Finally, inflate the balloon to see how it looks.
That’s it! Your gender reveal box is complete and waiting for your baby to arrive. Your gender reveal balloon will serve as a reminder that you’re expecting a baby boy or girl. And when your baby arrives, it will be the perfect way to welcome him/her into the world!
