One of the first DIYs that I made for my daughter’s wedding was this Wedding Cake Card Box.
I used three round paper mache boxes like these. I cut out a large hole on the bottom of the two larger boxes, leaving a half inch rim where the next “layer” will be glued. That next layer covers the ragged edge. Next, I covered the boxes with scrapbook paper using a spray adhesive. I cut the paper wide enough so there would be excess paper to wrap around to the inside of the box. I clipped the edge of the paper to make gluing the inside of the box easier.
Using a craft knife, I made a slot in the middle-sized box to create the opening for guests to insert the cards.
I hot-glued gimp trim found at JoAnn Fabrics, around the card slot opening.
Using the same gimp trim finishes off the bottom of each layer.
I made rolled pink paper roses for the top layer of the “cake”. You can see how I made the roses here.
I loved making unique, one-of-a-kind items for my daughter’s wedding. You can see everything I made here.
Is there a wedding coming up in your future? Will you be making any DIYs? I’d love to know what you’ve made or plan to make.
