Diane looked GORGEOUS!

A few weeks ago, Diane asked me if I would make them a wedding card box. I can't tell you how much FUN I had making this. I would have been stressed if I didn't have a few weeks to make it. I love how it turned out!
I'll tell you how I did it. First I went to Michaels and bought a set of paper mache boxes. It came with 5 or six. I was going to make it 3 tier and then decided since there was going to be less that 100 people, 2 tier would work beautifully. I then spray painted the bottom box AND lid orange, and spray painted the top box cream.
I had Paul do the cutting with an exacto knife, the slot for the cards and the lid.
|I landed up covering the slot with black cardstock because the paper mache cuts are so jagged looking as you can see by the picture inside the lid below.|
After I made the bow, I glued a strip of the ribbon I used for the bow around the box and lid. I then attached the bow. I used the tiny ribbon that was holding the bow together and put two small holes through the wide ribbon and box. I then fed the tiny ribbon through and tied it. I didn't want to try the glue gun on the bow...just didn't.
I then added Martha Steward felt spider webs and some spiders I found at Michaels.
I have to go get ready for our big party! I'll post pics in a day or so. As always...
