So i wanted the most possible blinged out card box without spending a fortune. I finally finished...
WOW- I am finally out of the triple digits!
94 days until my wedding! :)
Anywho- SUPER excited for this DIY project!
Flower girl baskets are ridiculously priced. I think the cheapest one I saw was $35... for ONE! I almost had a heart attack! Being on a tight budget... spending $70 on flower girl baskets just seemed a little much.
Yesterday I went to Micheal's and bought two brown, square wicker baskets for $4.99 each. Then, my MOH and I planned to spray paint them white, and wrap some ribbon around the handle.
Well... then we ended up at Hobby Lobby... and I got the two baskets above, already white... and lined with plastic inside, for only $3 a piece because they were 50% off! Have I mentioned I LOVE Hobby Lobby?? :) Then we got these cute black flowers white rhinestones in the middle, which we're going to group in threes at the bottom of the handle on one side of each basket! And to top it off, my wonderful MOH bought me this cute black ribbon with rhinestones in the middle to wrap the handles with!
Needless to say, I returned my earlier basket purchase :)
I am so excited for this project! :)
Simple, but cute :)
I got the pillow on sale at Hobby Lobby as well (also 50% off...) so it only cost about $12, and we're going to add the black ribbon as well as an accent so they match the baskets :) I had originally planned on making my own pillow... but after weighing the cost of material, stuffing, and ribbon... with the pillow being 50% off, it was only a few dollars cheaper to make it... so I decided to save myself the hassle (and everyone else the pain of listening to my "cheery" self while trying to construct this pillow LOL), I just decided to buy it... but, I still get to customize it :)
