How to Make Your Own Wedding Card Box:

Step 1:

Step 2:

Take 6 MDF hearts, and cover with coordinating papers, then ink around their edges using Distress Ink, to create a vintage-style finish. Place your hearts across the front of your box and decide on positioning, then stick them down using craft glue.

Step 3:

Now you can start creating the more intricate finishing touches! Die cutting is a great way to do this, as you can use your favourite dies to achieve detailed cut-outs in seconds. Here I used a Tattered Lace Woodside Bloom Rectangle and cut a piece to place under the opening of the box to decorate, then die-cut three different sizes of flowers using peach and navy tones, inked around the edges, and layered them up using foam pads.

I made two of these, and placed one at the top of the box and one at the bottom, but you can get really creative with your dies, depending on your wedding theme and colourscheme.

Step 4:

Using navy coloured paper from the same pack I used to create the flowers, I also die-cut the word ‘Cards’ to stick on the front of the box under the post slot, so it’s quick and easy for guests to identify exactly where to pop their cards on the big day itself!

To finish off, draw around the edge of the box with a silver pen and doodle around the edges of some of the hearts with a white pen, adding gems to the centre of the flowers. And there you have it – one gorgeous wedding card box, ready to be filled with joy and congratulations!
