I went shopping yesterday with my best friend and we hit up our favorite Antique mall! I found the COOLEST trunk for our card box! I was stoked-$34!
We went to Hobby Lobby and I picked the wooden letters, brought them home and painted them with some sparkley blue paint, hot glued them to the hot pink ribbon and BAM! I think that I need to toss in some fabric to make the letters a bit eaiser to read…but I still love it!

Nice! I agree that the dark blue needs to pop a little… it’s hard to read against the wood. Love the font, though 🙂

Cute trunk (and puppy!)! The letters are pretty dark in the photo, but is it that hard to see in person? You said you were already thinking of adding fabric, but how did you want to do it? Putting fabric triangles behind the letters to make it look like bunting might work. Or maybe cutting a lighter/brighter fabric in the shapes of the letters (but slightly larger) to make a border for them would work?

It does look darker in the picture than it does in the “real world”, but I’m still not thrilled with it. I’m thinking I could line the top and bottom of the trunk with something pink or silver, it may work out. I’m not sure? I think I want to sleep on it before I do anything. I just stinkin love that trunk!

It is a beautiful trunk ! What a great find! I think tit’s beauty is in its’ simplicity. I’m not sure I would be adding pink or silver fabric. Are those your wedding colors?
I think I agree with a pp. I would do a bunting with the pink ribbon,and have the letters ona backing of burlap or a pretty print fabric.
