Gender Reveal Surprise in a Box - outside of the box tied shut with cordI had the honor of finding out the gender of my friend's baby before she and her husband.

She wanted me to make a little gift for them to open on their anniversary. I sat looking at the supplies I had on hand and thought this was perfect.


1. It is a gift (in a gift box).
2. It reveals the gender.
3. Made from items I already have at home.

You can apply this concept not just for gender reveal, but you can change your phrase to say congratulations, happy birthday, or even a cute will you marry me proposal, or as an invitation to go to a dance (like prom, homecoming, etc).

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • jewelry gift box
  • ribbon
  • Avery round labels
  • glue stick
  • stickers
  • onesie print out

  1. Sandwich ribbon between circle label stickers. Repeat, adding circles until you have enough to write your phrase.
  2. Gender Reveal Surprise in a Box - narrow ribbon with a circle sticker stuck to one side
    Gender Reveal Surprise in a Box - cover with another sticker
    Gender Reveal Surprise in a Box - continue adding stickers until you can spell out the phrase
  3. I printed out a onesie off the internet (search onesie print out), then cut it out and glued to the top of the box.
  4. Gender Reveal Surprise in a Box - print out a onesie shape, cut out and glue to the top of the box

  5. Using stickers, I spelled out "boy or girl".
  6. Gender Reveal Surprise in a Box - add alphabet stickers
  7. Remove the foam from bottom of box and apply circle sticker to the end of the ribbon so it will securely stay in place.
  8. Gender Reveal Surprise in a Box - attach one end of the ribbon to the inside bottom of the box with a sticker and recover with the foam insert
  9. Put the foam cushion back in and then roll up the letters to fit in the box and at the other end, place a circle sticker on the inside of the lid so when opened, the phrase will spell out, it's a boy!
  10. Gender Reveal Surprise in a Box - peaking in
    Gender Reveal Surprise in a Box - stickers on ribbon wound up in the box with other end attached to the inside of the lid
