Project Updates

I've been a busy bee these last 2 days working on my cardbox. Remember I showed you a picture of the card box that I wanted fromThe Wedding Main Street, it costs $119 plus shipping and taxes. Well I decided that I didn't want to pay that amount of money for a cardbox, plus it just wasn't in the budget, so...

I thought that maybe I should try to make one myself considering how great a DIYer I am. (modest right?) So I shopped around for aqua wrapping paper cuz I didn't think I could paint or spray paint a box well enough. Anyway it turned out that I found Tiffany wrapping paper from Sophie's Favor's, a little on the pricey side at $11.99 but the boxes were free from the shoe store and I bought the ribbon from Michael's for about $2 and the rhinestones for $1 for a pack of 120. So all in all, it cost me about $15 for my pretty cardbox.
So ladies, tell me what you think. TTFN (ta ta for now)

  1. Pretty good. I like the fact that you added an extra box…the height on yours is must better.

  3. It is beeeaaauuuutiful! I even like the bow on yours better than the original box! It's lovely. Maybe I will make my own :) Aren't you glad you didn't buy the $119 one?
