I'm going to a bridal shower today and I wanted to show you the gift I made. I always like to give something special when I give a gift, usually handmade. (Although I admit I also gave them a target gift card because as a newlywed, you really just want to be able to buy the stuff you need).
I had a wooden box in my craft supply stock that I just didn't know what to do with. I bought it over a year ago thinking I would use it and it just hasn't happened yet. The problem was it had a picture frame on the top and normally when I paint boxes, I paint a bird image right on the top. But this gave me an idea...
I took part of the wedding invitation and put it in the frame and then painted the box to match! As you can see, the invitation was black with a yellow, flowery design. I painted the box black and added a few simple designs. I also painted the inside yellow because I like a bold inside.
Now it is a nice little keepsake of the wedding and can be used to hold mementos, jewelry, or whatever.
I was also proud of my wrapping job so I wanted to show that off. Instead of paper or a bag, I found a pretty scarf at a thrift store and just tied it around. I added a ribbon and a tag and it was all done, easy-peasy!
