DIY Cardbox!

Filed in Ebonee 0 comments
Totally inspired by my E-BFF Sonya, I went ahead and tackled a DIY project I’d been putting off. I purchased these totally cute damask hat boxes on sale at Ross a few months ago for the project, but had never gotten around to actually doing it.
So last night, while “The Notebook” played, I got to work on transforming my card box from this:

(I stacked the boxes, for the picture, but they are separate and ORIGINALLY the top one had black ribbon too!)

To this!

I love it. Here’s what I did…
I cut holes in the top & bottom of the first box, as well as in the top of the 2nd box with my Xacto knife. I lined them up and made sure cards could go in easily. I purchased the letters & paint from Michael’s (with a coupon) and painted the letters with 2 coats. After I glued the letters, I made sure the ribbon (which I replaced with something more glossy) at the top was okay and then I added my crystals with my glue gun.
All in all…it took about 2 hours (including prep time, painting, etc.). Watching a movie, definitely made the time pass by quickly!
