How to Make a New Year's Resolution Box

As the new year is in full effect, the time for resolutions and what you hope to accomplish through out the year has also come. I know I'm guilty of making resolutions on New Year's Eve and not sticking to them. I came to realize I didn't stick to them because I forgot my resolutions throughout the year. When you have a family and things are constantly on the go, it's easy to forget something you vowed to do months ago.

For this reason, I decided I'm going to actually write down my resolutions and make a resolution box. This will allow me to have something tangible that I can reference through out the year in order to keep my resolutions. It's a great idea, I know! Who would have thought something as simple as actually writing down your resolutions would help? I don't know why it never occurred to me to do before. I even took it a step further by creating a new year's resolutions box to keep the resolutions in along with some fun items to help you celebrate each time you accomplish one of your resolutions.

To make this box, you'll need:

1. Write out your resolutions on the card.

2. Print and cut out your label on either a printable sticker sheet or white card stock. Stick it to the lid of the box.

3. Fill your box with tissue paper.

4. Put your resolutions inside the box, along with the hanging honeycomb decoration, some confetti poppers and bubbles so you can celebrate each time you open your box to cross off one of your accomplished resolutions or goals.

5. Seal it up and place it on a shelf or some place you'll remember to look so you can open it up through out the year to check in and make sure you're sticking to your new year's resolutions. At the end of the year, or when you've accomplished all your goals, hang the honeycomb decorations, break open some bubbles and pop that confetti party popper to congratulate yourself for a job well done!
