I made this wedding card box out of a hat box, it had an indian looking design on the box which I wanted but it was not the wedding colors, so this is what I did to make it my own.  I think you can do this to any box for any ocassion.

The box with the original color without the lid.

I traced the designs with a glue pen from Martha stewart crafts.
Now sprinkle the fuschia micro fine glitter on the areas you wanted to be fuschia , then I did the areas which I wanted gold next.You have to do one area at a time otherwise the glue will dry.
This is how the box looked when I was all done.

Next I spray painted the lid with gold paint and cut a slit for the cards with an exacto knife. After it was all dry I embellished the opening to make it look pretty.

Next I fixed a velvet ribbon to the top edge of the box with a glue gun and a bow and a rhinestone .

I think it turned out pretty.You can make your own using any kind of box and if you are artistic you can draw your own designs as well.

Bridal shower favors.
My neice is getting married on April 17th, tomorrow we are having a bridal shower for her , I have been busy making favor bags.I am able to do only a few at a time, today I got the last one done.
These small favor bags are made from pink craft paper,the white front label embossed with my cuttle bug using swiss dots embossing folder,   on the flap of the bag I embossed a bunch of flowers using my cuttlebug , the pink flowers were made using a flower craft punch (Martha Stewart) and I placed a white bead in the center of the flower, bow was made using pink gross grain ribbbon with white dots. Now for the surprise inside ,its a  travel size hand  and body lotion.  I think every woman loves lotion.  I have a few games planned , I think it is going to be a fun evening.
