Remember when I had this great DIY idea for a vintage suitcase card box? Yahhhh… my first attempt turned out so badly I couldn’t stand to snap a picture of it before it landed in the trash. So, I went with my backup plan.
When I was planning my candy buffet, I picked up this black cake stand, which happened to come in a great box. I’m not using the cake stand anymore, but it’s been sitting around my kitchen in that box. It only made sense to stop trying to think of something new and go with what works – a hat box turned card box.
Mr. S cut a slot out of the center with a box cutter, then I took some extra damask fabric I had on hand to cover the top. I didn’t have a big enough of a piece of fabric to cover the whole top, so I used two separate pieces.
I hot glued it in place on the top, then…
I flipped it over and gathered pieces, pulling the fabric tight, and glued it in place. I didn’t have the patience to try and get it smooth, so instead I pulled it so that it looked gathered around the side.
What are you using for the card box at your ceremony?
