Which brings us to my first wedding-related craft. I wanted to ask my friends and relatives to be part of our special day in the most crafty way. So I made proposal boxes.
I got inexpensive craft boxes and painted them white. After the white pain had dried, I painted purple over it. Then I used Mod Podge as a sealant. If you don't have Mod Podge, you can use a mixture of equal parts water and glue.
I got some silk fabric and cut them into circles of different sizes. Don't worry about cutting uneven circles. They would turn out to be imperfectly perfect.
Place three circles on top of each other (smallest circle in the innermost). I got a purple button and sewed it through the circles.
Put the circles aside. Meanwhile, I printed the words "Will you be my bridesmaid/maid of honor?" onto cardstock, cut it out, and taped it onto the inside of the box lid.
I used hot glue to stick the fabric flower onto the box lid and inserted a ring into the slit in the box.
It turned out to be quite a surprise for them -- much like a real proposal. Here's my maid of honor, smiling from ear to ear.
