- Wedding: October 2012
My wedding is Saturday and I really wanted to use a vintage suitcase for my cards… but I couldn’t find one I liked and waited too long… so I spent this weekend making a cardbox. What a terrible adventure.
First, I tried wrapping some hatboxes in Kraftpaper, it looked so terrible. Then, I pulled off the paper and spraypainted the boxes… double ugh. In a last ditch before I gave up an bought something totally un-related to my shabby chic wedding (like a premade white box from Michaels or A.C. Moore), I wrapped it in burlap.
It isn’t perfect by any stretch, but I’m literally out of time to fix it. Tomorrow I’m off running errands, Tuesday is the spa day, Weds. I’m diying my flowers, Thursday is bridal shoot, and then it’s all rehearsal dinners and such.
What do you think? Is it okay? My theme is shabby chic with tons of twine, lace and burlap.
