Easy to make Elegant Card Box for a DIY Wedding!

>

June is a big month for weddings.  Helping to plan and execute my daughter’s wedding a few years ago made me well aware of the costs that a wedding brings.  I’ve put together a few projects to help out with that.  With such a large selection of beautiful DIY items available, I had a never-ending source of ideas!

Today, we are creating a beautiful Wedding Card Box.  This pretty box is fun to make and doesn’t break the bank.  Adjust the colors and the theme any way that you want and create something that your guests would love!

 For this project I used:

3 round paper mache boxes (largest box was 16″ in diameter)
White poster board
Hot glue
Purple satin ribbon
Small Metal Bird Cage Tealight
Small silk flowers
Peacock Feathers
2 Purple Birds
Small scrap of tulle, scrap of black cardstock
Bling on a Roll
Adhesive Rhinestones in Oval
Adhesive Rhinestones Sheet
Rhinestone Brooch
Brooch Pin

Find three round paper mache boxes in descending sizes.  Yes, my bottom box is a Christmas box, but the size was perfect!

Use the white poster board to cover the sides and tops of the boxes using hot glue.

Stack the covered boxes and glue them down with hot glue.  Use a craft blade to cut a slot in the front of the bottom box.

The little metal bird cage tea light was purchased at Michael’s.  We are going to bling it up!  Starting with adding some smaller silk flowers in the inside of the cage.

Our two feathered friends were also found at Michael’s.  I added a scrap of tulle for a veil for the “bride”, and crowned her with a brooch pin.

The “groom” received a tiny bow tie cut from black cardstock.  Both birds were glued in place on top of the bird cage.

    This is a great idea for a place guests can put their wedding gift cards without worry they will get lost in the shuffle of presents. Thank you for linking up with us at the #HomeMattersParty this week!
