- Wedding: August 2013
So…I have an addiction and its called ETSY… fortunately I can tell my self know and one of those No’s was a card box, so I decided to make this a DIY project when I was looking at card boxes (the ones I loved) ranging from $100-150 not including shipping…BAHHH…yea right, I dont have that kindof budget for a card box! So I hit up my local Hobby Lobby and bought an unfinished woodened chest. It was bigger than the one pictured below-probably twice the size.
So I drew on the box our names and the date of our wedding. Then I decided to use my wood burning skills (from good ole 4H) and wood burn the “stencil” that I had drawn earlier. After several burns and many breaks, I finally finished. Then my FI stained the box and used a dremmel tool for the top to make a slot for cards (so people didnt have to open/close the box) 🙂
