Wedding DIY: Old-Fashioned Card Box


So you've probably seen these wedding card trunks all over pinterest because they're so cute! 



I knew my mom had this little piece of luggage in her house, so I stole it.


Samsonite....fancy.....


And I cleaned it! It was quite old.
I cut the letters for the word "Cards" out of the fabric in our wedding color - blue- and 
I used these little canvas bunting flags to spell out the word. Thinking I would be slick, I layed the letters down facedown and hot glued the backs. Then I stuck a bunting flag on each one and glued a ribbon across the top of the bunting flags to make a little banner. After that, I flipped it over.... and realized I did it backwards. Duh.



So I cut the flags apart and glued them back together the right way.


To add some sparkle, I used some glitter and Elmer's glue to fancy up some tiny clothespins. 



Then I clipped one on the top of each bunting flag! Easy peasy card holder box!

    It's comforting to know I'm not the only one who does things backwards sometimes. :)
