Hot Air Balloon Graduation Card box

I found this adorable idea on Pinterest and I had to re-create it for 2 special girls! They both have been best friends since 5th grade and both graduated together and are both going to college, though they are going to different colleges I know that they will be forever friends!

the boxes I bought but re-decorated them by cutting out 12"x1" ( I think there were 24 strips per side) strips of light brown card stock and weaved them to look like a hot air balloon basket. I did 3 sides since I figured no one would see the back of the box. 
My local party store was able to order the 3' balloons and the net for me :)

I added their Senior pictures to the sides of the box and added the statements " Time for you to Soar" and " The Sky's the Limit". For the top of the box I added a grad hat, diploma and Congrat's which I found on the SIL site :)

I made each of the girls Congrat's Banners.

The centerpieces I made for the tables :)
