We recently had a ladies event at our church called a Creativi-Tea where we had a lovely time talking, sharing, playing a few games, drinking tea, eating yummy snacks, and making Encouragement Boxes. Today I’d love to share with you How to Make an Encouragement Box, and maybe the pictures will inspire you to host a Creativi-Tea yourself!

The purpose of an Encouragement Box is to fill it with things to encourage either yourself or someone else when they are feeling down. Here are some ideas of what to fill the box with:

  • Scripture verses or passages
  • Favorite memories
  • Photos
  • Things you are grateful for
  • Inspirational quotes
  • Words of encouragement
  • Silly jokes
  • Song lyrics
  • Good ideas
  • Things that make you smile
  • Titles of favorite movies, books, songs, etc.
  • Ideas of things to do to help others (call a friend, write a letter, dance, hug someone, etc.)
  • Ideas of things to do to de-stress (go for a walk, go to a park, etc.)
  • Father’s Love Letter

Those who need encouragement (lost a job, fighting cancer, going through a divorce, new moms, anyone really!) can simply pull out something each day to get a boost of encouragement.

An Encouragement Box would also be a perfect Mother’s Day gift!

The ladies at my table cut out pictures and words from magazines. We pasted them on the box and covered everything with Mod-Podge.

  1. My twin daughters are leaving for college in a few weeks I love the idea of putting this together for them, putting a few things in and then letting them fill it up they are while away. Thank you for the idea!
