Card Box

My friend Takea is getting married on March 26 and I am so excited for her. Due to my crafty reputation she has asked me to make a card box to use at her bridal shower and wedding.  I had the idea to make it a replica of her wedding cake. Her real cake is 4 tiers, but I think this looks pretty awesome, especially since I totally winged it. The shower is next Saturday so I'm glad it turned out. otherwise it would have been pretty sad.


First I ordered square hatboxes on ebay.  These were impossible to find in the store! Then I cut out a card slot on the side of the top box and square in the middle of the bottom box with a razor blade. 



I marked the fabric with a marker then cut along the "X"


I wrapped the boxes with fabric pretty similar to how you wrap a present with a few modifications. I just wanted a really smooth and elegant look. I used clips to hold the ends while the glue dried. 


I wrapped the top piece and then added flowers. It doesn't look exactly like her cake, but I think it's pretty cool. Functional and fancy. 

Tell me what you think!
