2012 Wedding Event: Rustic Card Box Tutorial

Today I spent *all day* working on the card box for my wedding!!! I have seen so many cute ones on Pinterest… and to be honest, this design is totally inspired by pinterest… BUT I put my own “rustic” spin on it. Now that it’s done… and I love it… I’m going to share how I made it! :)

Materials:

  • Rustic Box – My mom got this box from the beloved Hobby Lobby
  • (2) Two-inch strips of Burlap
  • One strip of Tulle 
  • Hammer
  • Two Nails
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Cricut
  • “Mini Monograms”
  • Scrapbook paper of choice
  • (4) large grey metallic beads
  • (1) sewing needle
  • (1) small hole punch

To create the burlap flowers, I went to the blog, Restore Interiors. I found this tutorial on Pinterest and it turned out SO cute! So, since this is not my tutorial… please head on over to Restore Interiors for this portion of the box. :)

After I finished making both flowers, equal in size, I nailed them onto the top corners of the box top.  Then I went over to my Cricut to cut out the letters.

I got my paper from Archivers (I love that store… SO much!). Here are the dimensions that I cut the letters out with. Each circle consists of: One letter, One circle, and One shadow circle. I glued them all together.

Cut Dimensions: 
  • Single Letters: 4 1/2 inches
  • Circle Backgrounds: 4 1/2 inches
  • Shadow backgrounds: 4 3/4 inches ** with SHADOW turned on! **

After I cut out the letters and glued them together, I took a hole punch and punched holes in the corners of the letters.

Then, I threaded my tulle on a needle (IT IS MUCH HARDER THAN IT SEEMS), and threaded the letters & gray beads onto the tulle; leaving about 1 foot on each side of the beginning & final letters.

Then, I took the tulle and wrapped it around the burlap flower. I did NOT firmly secure the tulle onto the flower because I need to be able to take the banner off of the box when transporting it.

Here are some close up pictures of the final product:

Isn’t it cute?! I am super excited about it! I cannot WAIT to show all of y’all pictures of the box in-action at the wedding! Stay tuned!! :)

Oh yes, and THANK YOU Pinterest… for your inspiration! :)
