Wedding Card Box

image

I’ve been dying to share this project. I video recorded the entire project from start to finish, but I’ve had trouble editing it 🎥🎬 ughhh.
This was for my Brother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law for their Black and White wedding in September of 2015.
The bottom two boxes are the largest size of the United States Postal Service. They’re free at your local post office!!!

The small top box is a kids shoe box. I cut the bottom of the middle box and the top of the bottom box so that the two boxes are hollow in the middle. This allows the envelopes to fall all the way to the bottom. The small to box on top is just for decoration, it is not connected to the inside of the bottom two boxes.
I wrapped 11 sheets of 12×12 scrapbook paper around each side. The top box has a lid that is wrapped individually instead of around the whole thing. I finished each individual box before hot glueing them all together.

I made mini boxes out of the same paper as the lid. It holds up the letters and flowers, but doesn’t stand out. The chipboard letters were from a $1 bin at Target. The paper flowers are from Prima. The picture below is viewed from the back.

I used strips from a diamond mesh roll for all 3 boxes for some bling 💎

My Sister-in-Law sent me this picture of the over flowing envelopes. SO AWESOME!

I loved making this box! I made one for my own wedding the night before my reception LOL it was simple and a lot smaller.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog!!! Lots of love & hugs ❤

My Love & Happiness

Happy Monday!!! I wanted to post this yesterday, but my Hunny Bunny and I opted to pick up a pizza and watch a handful of New Releases. Sweet and blissful love. It’s what makes my world go ’round.
Speaking of love, I’m sharing a layout I made. My favorite photo of us the night of my brother’s wedding. I actually backed it on thick chipboard that I can frame and hang up.
I’m submitted this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes With Buttons.

I impulsively purchased the huge flower waiting in line at Michael’s (those dollar bins are dangerous lol). The key too!!! Everything else I pulled from my existing stash and just kept layering until it looked good.

BONUS DIY: If you look real close you can see some color sprays behind the flower and picture. This is the first time I use sprays or mists so I went light. Looking back now, I wish I had sprayed heavier lol
I bought empty spray bottles and gel food coloring. They don’t clog up the sprayers and the color is richer. I YouTubed tutorials and watched dozens of vids before deciding this was what I wanted to try first.

Thanks guys! Up next: I pulled out an unfinished project from the vault 😉

My Creative Workspace

Welcome!!! Today I bring you a tour of my craft “room”. Where I do my best brainstorming and creating. Technically, it’s not a room, it’s a closet LOL in our guest bedroom. Jerry and I live in a 2 bedroom apartment and have construction/decorating limitations. So, when I’ve got lemons I make lemonade!!!

I took down the folding wood doors, the closet shelf, the hanger rod, and shoved them in the back of another closet. Out of sight, out of mind! If and when we move I can easily re-install them. I’ve added detailed descriptions to each picture so that you clearly know what you’re looking at. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask 🙂 Enjoy!!!
