HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN WEDDING CARD BOX

John and I are getting married in September, so I’ve been frantically shopping for centerpieces, favors and decorations.  There is so much to do, and so little time!

One thing I needed to get was a wedding card box to put on the gift table.  All of the wedding card boxes I found online were so expensive, so I decided I would just try to make my own. I’m all about saving money whenever I can. A wedding card box seemed like an easy enough thing to make myself.

I started with a wooden box I found at AC Moore, which is just the right size to hold cards.

The box was unfinished, so I painted it with white acrylic paint.

Our colors are light and navy blue, so I bought some wood letters and painted the letters to spell out CARDS with a light blue acrylic paint.

I added light blue flowers, and blue and clear gemstones to the box for some decoration, and I dressed it up even more by adding light blue and navy blue ribbon.

This project was a lot of fun to do, and the total cost was somewhere around $35.00, which I don’t think was too bad, plus I have lots of ribbon, embellishments & Krazy Glue leftover for other projects!

All of the ribbon and other embellishments were added to my wood box with Krazy Glue.

I had to wait a while for my paint to dry, but I didn’t have to wait for my embellishments to dry!  The Krazy Glue really made this project so easy to do.  Just a small dab of Krazy Glue was enough to keep my embellishments in place on the wood box.  It took me less than 20 minutes to put the embellishments on my painted box, and most of that time was me just trying to figure out where I wanted to place everything.  Krazy strong, Krazy fast, Krazy Glue really allows you to create masterpieces in minutes!

Krazy Glue works on porcelain, pottery, plastic, rubber, metal and glass, or vinyl. It eliminates the need for glue guns and other expensive tools.  The tube is so small, that it’s easy to store. It won’t take up too much space in your craft supply box, tool box, purse, or kitchen drawer.

Krazy Glue’s unique craft products bond the smallest, most delicate design elements. It has the same strength and speed that make Krazy Glue America’s #1 instant adhesive.  So, instead of reaching for the glue gun, next time reach for Krazy Glue instead!  There’s no need to heat anything up.  You simply take off the cap and you’re ready to go!

You can tackle your larger projects with Krazy Glue’s new 20 gram gel formula.  The gel formula allows you to glue vertical surfaces with no runny mess and fill in gaps when bonding mismatched surfaces.

Unlike glue guns, there’s no chance of you burning yourself, making a huge mess, or getting glue strands all over your craft project with Krazy Glue. The Skin Guard™ formula also delays skin bonding, giving you extra working time before the glue dries!

Don’t you just love this DIY Wedding Card Box?
