|Never fear, Leah will DIY this one. Convo from 11/14/11|
Now, my wedding was pretty bare bones when it came to details like this. There was a basket on a gift table where guests could put cards for us. I wasn't trying to dismiss her desire for a fancy card box. I would have loved a fancy card box too, had I known about fancy card boxes back when I was wedding planning. I just really felt that it was unnecessary to spend $90 on one (and based on her initial comment, she did too).
So, with a committment and a deadline of 1/1/12 looming, I set out to make a fancy card box for Dora's wedding. As always, Pinterest came to my rescue:
|Simple and stunning. I hope I can produce!|
|Eggplant, Ribbon, Lace, Sparkle Brooch(es)|
|How did I make it 33 years before owning a hot glue gun?|
|The inside of the top box. The hole at the bottom of the top box is supposed to be there.|
|The top box (left) and the lid of the bottom box (right).|
|How the top and the bottom boxes will be connected. |
|It looks much more professional with the lid on, hiding the holiday themed box inside!|
By this point, my hot glue gun and I had become great friends, even though I had burned myself a few times -- turns out they are really hot!! The lace was cooperative to being affixed to the fabric.
|I'm getting excited now!|
I'm happy to report that Dora loves the final product. And it didn't cost her a penny! I can't wait to see my work in action on her big day this Saturday!

Congratulations, Dora and Carlo! The fun has just begun!
