As y’all know I am engaged and have just barely scratched the surface on planning our 2nd wedding. The little bit that I have decided on is our color scheme and my Maid of Honor. Now that my sister has received her specially made package, I can share it with all of you!
When I started planning this, I bought the box first… I recommend figuring out what you want to actually put in the box and purchasing these items first prior to buying it and taking all the items with you to the store to find one that fits well. The first box I purchased was too a little small for everything that I bought.
What I included in my box:
-black pens (I chose sharpie pens, since they are one of my favs)
-picture of the 2 of us
The first box I bought couldn’t even fit the planner in it! So that had to change. Thank goodness I didn’t paint it yet so I could return it or use it for something else. Our theme is Classy Vegas, since we decided to have it in Las Vegas. The colors I have chosen are black, white and silver. The only down side with the champagne is that it has gold on the label. It was the only small bottle that I could find that was black so I made it work. I could have covered it with silver glitter but I just left it.
I found my box, along with the glitter backer for the diamond print out at Michael’s. I painted the box with black acrylic paint. Printed out the question and diamond on white card stock and used an X-ACTO knife to cut out the diamond pieces. I then glued it to the silver glitter paper backer with spray glue and in turn, glued that to the lid of the box with a thin layer of wood glue.
It was really easy to do. I think the hardest part was cutting out the diamond so the glitter backer could show through. I am really happy with the way it turned out and I know my sister is too!
Happy Wedding Planning!
