One of the best parts about planning a wedding is adding your personal touches to details throughout the planning process. Sure the big decisions like venue, colors and themes are those that need the most attention, but it’s fun to look at the small details as well. My friend Brooke (currently living on cloud 9) recently got engaged and I can already tell that she will be a very detailed bride. She decided to ask her maid of honor and bridesmaids to be in her wedding by making pretty DIY boxes! With little time, effort, and money, she was able to turn a simple question into something special that the girls will remember! Check out the details of these fun “Will you be my bridesmaid?” boxes, and find out how you can make them at home!
What You Will Need: (from the dollar store)
– 3 small boxes with covers
– 1 package of pink and white polka dot wrapping paper
– 2 packages of confetti (one pink, one white)
– 3 ring pops
– 1 package of wedding stickers
– Misc. scrapbooking supplies (scrapbooking paper and some decorative letters & flowers)
Her Total Cost = $11!
From the Bride-to-Be:
“So to start off, we wrapped the covers of the boxes with the wrapping paper. Then using a piece of scrapbooking paper that my mom had, we printed the words out. We incorporated a sticker to each of the texts to personalize them a bit. We cut the paper to fit the inside cover and then decorated with stickers and misc. scrapbooking items. We used tape/glue when required to stick paper inside the cover. Then we stuffed the boxes with the confetti and put a ring pop in each. Finally, we decided to put a letter on the top of each box for the bridesmaid’s initial and a pretty white flower. Pretty easy! It probably took us about 1.5/2 hours… Only because we did some experimenting while wrapping the covers (we didn’t want the inside of the cover to be too bunchy with too much wrapping paper etc.), and we had to play with the font size/style when printing to make sure it would fit inside the cover. The clean-up was a bit lengthy too because there was confetti everywhere – but overall it was a nice craft to do with my mom!”
A big thank you goes out to Brooke for sharing this awesome and easy DIY with us! I can’t wait to see what else she comes up with, and hopefully be able to share some more of her wedding details with you!
