For our wedding reception, (read about our DIY wedding here) I wanted to make a card box. Well with all of my other wedding projects to complete, by the time I realized I had not finished my card box we were only a little over a week away! Oh no!! I knew I didn't have time to use the actual boxes, and spend as much time decorating it as I had planned....how could I get this done?! I knew this project would require something that needed to be spray painted to beauty!
Unfortunately, this project was completed before The Inspired Collection was created so I do not have all the pictures of the separate pieces but I can share the final product with you and tell you how I created it. Check out our DIY card box:
I found this chest at Michael's and bought it for $14.99. It is about 16 inches long and about 12 inches tall. It could easily fit a large card, and I know that it could fit many. It was just wood and took 2 coats of spray paint to get a nice finish. I also got the flowers from Michael's too, I got the set of 4 for under $3.00. Our reception colors were black, white and yellow so they were perfect! I applied them using hot glue. I bought the sparkly letters from Hobby Lobby. I paid 50 cents for each letter, so a total of $2.50. These letters were so easy, they were just like stickers. I just stuck them on there and there it was, I had my card box. Made in under an hour for under 25 dollars!
The card box worked out great, and now we have a beautiful card box that we can hopefully use again. The hubs wants me to make one for him as a Tip Jar for his local shows. I think we can work something out....
Thanks for reading! :)
