@Diamond84: You did a great job! I love it. I wish someone would’ve posted this prior to my wedding. I ended up renting a card box from one of our vendors for $35. I would’ve loved to make it myself and pass it on to future brides.

Thanks for the detailed directions! I’m going to try and make this but I have square boxes instead of the round.

@Diamond84:  I just discovered the other thread and just bought almost everything for the project. I bought ivory lace and I was wondering how white the magnolia white is. Should I go with a light ivory or is r magnolia white not crazy stark white where it would look weird with the lace?

I started making my box.  I couldn’t find any round boxes in town so I had to go with square ones.  I painted my boxes the magnolia white and realized it wouldn’t tie into any of our decor.  Our colors are cobalt blue and sunflower yellow so I painted over the white color in a shade a blue.  Here is where I’m at right now in my project. I still need to finish wrapping everything in lace and then figure out what color ribbon, flower, and what extra embellishments.  Your instructions are wonderful!!
