My First DIY

I never thought I'd be able to do some of those creative DIY things you girls do, but I'm pretty proud of my cardbox! John and I put it all together, we even stained and sanded the wood! I'm so proud of myself!! I don't like the little ribbons on it, they looked pinker in the store, but against the box they look kind of red now :( I think I'll get a moss green ribbon to match my BM's gowns. What do you ladies think? Does it need anything else?

Yeah! Its my first! I'm not sure what else I will DIY. Definitely my programs. And I'm hoping to do escort cards as names on river stones, but it can't be to hard to write down people's names! I'd love to DIY other stuff, but I'm not sure what!!

Thanks guys!! :) I'm glad you think its unique! I really like it, but sometimes I'm not sure if my taste is that good, I remember really liking a super ugly dress too, it just took a while for me to realize its ugliness!
