My lovely sister Sarah blessed our family with Jason. He is the coolest Uncle ever according to my 3 boys who totally ADORE him! Plus I finally have a little brother to tease! he-he! Anyway...I am rambling. The wedding was wonderful. Everything came together and the night (and day) was perfect. So my baby sister is a married woman now. sniff, sniff!
We needed to come up with a box to hold cards and I had not clue how to make one so we ordered the cake box from Oriental Trading Company. If I had more time I would have painted it Ivory because that was the color of my sisters dress, but I had less than a day to rock out this cake box.
The cake box was already "decorated" according to Oriental Trading company but I ripped off all the ribbons and crappy cheap flowers and started with a bare box. I wanted to add the yummy Rich Razzleberry Ribbon from Stampin Up! but I didn't have enough and I couldn't use Very Vanilla because the cake box was still white so I came up with using Rich Razzleberry Card Stock and punch using the Eyelet Lace border punch. I actually used the scalloped edge punch but my sister liked the eyelet lace punch and since she was queen of the day, she got what she wanted. I used Tombo Mono Adhesive to glue everything down and it worked like a charm.
here. I ran a strip of Old Olive card stock through the crimper and cut out leaf shapes and just added them in as I went along.
I was really happy with how everything came out. I have never done anything like this before and I only had a few hours to really make it come together. I did receive a lot of compliments from the staff at the reception so I am going to play around with some other paper flowers and designs and make more of these to sell if requested.
I would love to know what you think! Please leave me comments (and please be kind!) I am new to this!
