@mtbikelover:  I made mine and it was actually easier than i thought (not the craftiest of person, but def. determined lol). i followed instructions i found on the bee, posted below


instead of trying to find the round boxes i just used extra brown boxes i had lying around the house from all the wedding packages i’ve been getting in the mail.

hopefully it comes out great 🙂

Any box that is large enough will do. You can purchase boxes from craft stores that are typically paper mache.  They take the paint very well.


Pant, use craft/wrapping paper, or fabric.  Embellish with what matches your wedding.  Making the card box was my first DIY for the wedding.  They are a lot of fun to create.


Mine is made from old box I had in the garage.  A little “thank you” sign pops up when the drawer is opened.  Over the top and maybe too cutesy, but I had fun making it.

My look is similar to the link in adeharo’s comment. I spray painted mine and then wrapped it in lace by spraying the lace with adhesive. Originally I wanted to wrap it in a material that was more solid than lace and skip the painting, but found I was unable to wrap it well without wrinkles. 


I contemplated just wrapping the front portion with material and spray painting the tops of each layer. 




Are your boxes round or square?
