Number 4 on the list was a certain Kate Jones
, who is now officially Kate Lynch! Kate is a friend of mine from college who got married in Maryland this past Saturday. I knew she was getting married, so I decided her winnings would be part wedding gift & part giveaway gift!
I thought about what I could make that would have added a little extra to my own wedding and quickly found inspiration in a shoe box full of cards. I won't be able to part with our wedding cards anytime in the foreseeable future, so it sure would be nice to have a pretty box in which to store them! (Happily, I will have my own version of this box soon, because I cut out two sets of boards while I was working on Kate's!)
The dimensions are based on the measurements of our stack of cards. It's a little wider than the tallest card and a little taller than the widest card! I decided on a landscape box rather than a portrait, simply because I thought it would be the most elegant.
The Lynchs had a color scheme of truffle brown and cornflower blue, so I tried to stay in that color ballpark while picking my materials. The white decorative paper that is inset on the cover of the box is a strip of vintage Royledge shelf paper.
Congrats & Best Wishes, Mr. & Mrs. Lynch!
