I like the top and the color of the sides is nice and goes well with your scheme. I’m not fond of the flower appliques. It looks like a present for a kids party, an awesome one no doubt, but nonetheless….

not crazy about it, i think its the names painted on, or the small size

I think your heart is definitely in the right place and the colors look great, but agree that it’s a bit too DIY for my liking, and it’s also too small (which isn’t a bad thing!).

Honest opinion…I don’t like it. I’m sorry, I know I’m going to sound harsh but the writing is sloppy, I don’t get the decals, and even the ribbon looks messy. I think the wrapping paper box a few posts above mine would be a cuter look but still very budget-friendly.

@MsPanda I am glad I could lend a bit of inspration… and that was just my first run at it… I love how it looks but I need to re wrap the top box my opening needs to be evened out a tiny bit more and the paper on the top is in a different direction then the box on the bottom oh the little things that drive me completely insane…easy enough of a fix I still have quite a bit of wrap on the roll….


@sleepingwithnuns I think depending on the style of wedding is depending on what type of box to use, I was just thikning of it now… I love the blue color you used but seeing as my wedding is super formal I went with super formal box I think if your wedding is more mellow and laid back then the colorful box will fit in…. good luck girl!
