- Wedding: May 2012
I love the idea of card boxes – especially the elaborate ones, like hat boxes, vintage suitcases, or my favorite: the customized house bird-houses from etsy. However, we are having a small wedding and I wanted to be able to re-use things, so I resigned myself to a more basic card box. I’m happy with how it turned out! Afterwards, I’ll remove the ribbon and use the basket for storage in our laundry room.
I bought a $5 basket from Home Goods, and cut out some cardstock flags. Then I sewed them onto a ribbon (love the look of sewing paper!). I’d suggest having a dedicated needle for sewing paper – it dulls them quite quickly, and then they aren’t great for sewing fabric (although you can sew paper forever with a dull needle!). I used letter stickers, and then tied the ribbon to the basket handles. Our wedding colors are pink & gray.
