Wedding Week! How to make a Card Box.

Sorry I was MIA for a week. I was at my parents and there are so much preparation for my sisters wedding that I didn’t have time to even touch my computer! I can’t wait to share a bunch of fun pics from my sisters wedding last week that turned out great!

First I made a card box for the bride and groom. We bought a plain heavy cardboard hat box at Hobby Lobby.

First I wrapped it up trying several different ways. After a couple of attempts to wrap the cylinder I decided the best way was to cover it circle wise and then cut stripes of paper down to cover it up and tape down the paper inside.


Before I covered the top I just took a sharp pair of kitchen sheers and cut down the card slot big enough to make sure everything can get in. Then once I covered the whole thing I found the whole and then cut down the paper to wrap it to the inside.

For once last finishing touch I cut out a circle to fit the bottom and cover up all the taped down paper.

Next – add a bunch of ribbon!

ta da! all done – once I figured out the best way to wrap the circle it went very quickly! It looked nice at the wedding and then it was just one more present the bride and groom could open.
