Okay bees! I got out of work early today and decided to spend this BEAUTIFUL afternoon creating our DIY Card Box!
I went to Michael’s in search of a plain white cube card box that I could paint like the Question Mark Blocks from Mario… no luck… instead I found a round box with a lid, sort of like a hat box… and it reminded me of something…
Hmmm, the perfect Mario-inspired Card Box idea!!
So I grabbed a can of red spray paint, a can of green spray paint, a styrofoam egg, white fabric paint, a silk rose (which I used the stem from) and some duct tape… and here’s what I came up with!

@corgitales, you would be AMAZED at how many nintendo/mario inspired wedding items there are!! The possibilities are endless! We have our Luigi & Princess Daisy Cake Topper… our Mario 1UP Mushroom Candy Tins, our Mario 3 World 2 Table Map, Sam Hart’s “Mario Kart Love Song” for cake cutting, our Piranha Plant Card Box… floating “Starman” candles in our centerpieces… I even got a little orange 1UP Mushroom to sew on to my garter, and our groomsmen will be wearing Nintendo cartridge cufflinks!

@7SEVENJ9 I cannot WAIT to see recaps from your wedding!!! I don’t know if we’re THAT into it to do a lot (I never played mario until like 6 mo ago!) but it is one of our favorite things right now and I think it’d be really cute to inject a little subtle mario into our day 🙂
