- Wedding: July 2010
for my bridesmaids, i am making them a beauty/survival box.
to start, i bought brown paper machae boxes from joann and spray painted them ivory. they needed 2-3 coats to look even.
then i added little things that they may need the day of the wedding. their dresses are light purple with an ivory bow, so i took thread in each color, wrapped it around a cute cut out of glitter cardstock, and added a needle.
safety pins were next on the list. i just pinned a few different sizes onto cute fabric swatches.
i also added bobby pins. i purchased different colors to match their hair.
to wrap all of the little goodies in, i made paper envelopes using and 8×8″ scrapbook paper i had. i folded the corners in to meet in the middle, and then used stickers instead of tape to keep them together. in the envelopes, i also added a few clear band-aids.
in the box, i put the envelopes in, along with a compact mirror, shine eraser blotting papers, a mini manicure set, and a pillow box with a pearl necklace (made by my co-worker diane), and matching earings.
i bought shimmery ivory flip-flops from old navy, and added a few purple flowers to the top. they didn’t fit in the box, so i will have them for them the day of the wedding
to decorate the boxes, i added 3-D glitter stickers from michaels. to finish them, i will wrap the boxes in wide purple ribbon, and add a name tag/label to them.
