Gwendolyn88:  I would rather spend my time driving to a store that had pretty hatbox style boxes that won’t need covering. You ony have to cut slits and glue them together.

If you stick with the idea of covering a box you coud do something like this. Keep it simple and it will be beautiful.

Do you have a Hobby Lobby nearby? Maybe go buy a birdcage there, buy some Krylon spraypaint in one of her colors, spray it down in a well ventilated area or set a fan up next to it. Good luck!

1. Go to Michaels (or similar) and get a wooden box. Paint or stain it. Decorate it with ribbon.

2. Get a photo box. Lots of places should have these, maybe even Walgreens? Decorate it with ribbon. Or find one with a nice pattern. 

3. Look for nice gift boxes.

4. Buy a pre-made card box in the wedding section of walmart/michaels.

5. Don’t use a box. Try a vase. Or a fishbowl. Vintage suitcase. birdcage. Mail box. Basket. Wood Crate.
