DIY Senior Memory Box

De’juh Hickman
A closer look at the school color themed memory box that I made over winter break.

Senior year will likely be your last time seeing many of your classmates and teachers, these last moments should be as enjoyable and memorable as possible. Whether it be taking pictures on a Polaroid camera or recording videos on your phone, you should find a method that will allow you to look back on your Senior year in the future. I have made another senior memory box that can store memories from prom, your senior photographs, homecoming, buying your cap and gown, graduation, and any other memories of your choosing.


  • Black acrylic paint
  • Red acrylic paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Paint palette
  • Shoebox
  • Class of 2024 sticker
  • Hot glue sticks
  • Hot glue gun
  • Faux butterfly stickers
  • Rubber snake
  • Rubber scorpion
  • 10 Faux butterfly stickers
  • Grocery bag
  • Rhinestone wrap

How to make your own Senior memory box:

  1. Gather your materials
  2. Pour the paint onto the paint palette.
  3. Use your paintbrush to apply 2-4 coats of paint onto the lid of the shoe box.
  4. Glue the class of 2024 sticker down to the center of the box.
  5. Place your butterflies, rubber snake, and rubber scorpion onto the grocery bag.
  6. Drizzle paint over the rubber snake, butterflies, and rubber scorpion.
  7. Glue the rubber snake and scorpion on opposing corners of the class of 2024 sticker.
  8. Glue 2 of the butterflies to opposing corners of the class of 2o24 sticker.
  9. Glue 3 butterflies down to the 1st side of the box.
  10. Glue 2 butterflies down to the 2nd side of the box.
  11. Glue 3 butterflies down to the 3rd side of the shoe box.
  12. Glue 2 butterflies and 6 strips of rhinestone wrap down onto the 4th side of the box.

Senior prom, graduation, and your Senior pictures are definitely memories that you won’t want to forget. A Senior box will allow you to keep these memories from being tarnished and will allow you to look back on them for as long as you live. The box can be treated like a time capsule, you can keep it in the back of your closet or under your desk and open it years down the line to reminiscence.
