Here is my pride and joy. I had such a fun time making this cardbox. So I was inspired again by other bees and I figured I am pretty crafty so I can totally make this. Our wedding colors are black, white, silver and a touch of red.

Box from Joann’s
I cut the top and used a real large card to mke sure it will fit.
Then I cut through all the boxes and then made sure the cards will fit all the way down to the bottom.
I did this trail a few times and made adjustments to the size of the hole.
I jused the Damask fabric and measured it before glueing. Damask is kind of expensive and I know I can reuse what is left over.
Make sure to pull it tight so it can be smooth
Glue it down and work on all four sides.
I used the black to cover the center box and the 2 lids.
I hot glued the sides first then worked on the top and bottom onf the box. I had to glue the corners like a present so it can lay smooth.
I cut the corner on the top to make sure the card slot looked nice and neat before glueing.
Added the silver bows and restacked to see how I did.
I made my own bows by just using ribbon and folding over into little loops. I used a safety pin to hold it together then I sowed the center before adding the crystal button. I simplied sown the crystal onto the center for an added touch.
I put the red ribbon around the lip first with hot glue then I put a good amount of hot glue on the finished bow and pushed it in the center.
Now the top box- it looked a little plane for me so I took some rhinestone and just sticked each one around the outline of the cut out. It also helped me to even out the top because it was hand cut so it wasn’t really 100% even.
The crystal is self stick so it sticked really good onto the fabric. I also used a black marker to touch up any glue, fabric string or cardboard that might be showing.
Made the second bow which is smaller for the top, again sowing the crystal for added detail
