Because this was going to be our wedding gift to them, I thought long and hard about how to present it...I wanted some packaging with a difference, something personal and that showed attention to detail. I wanted to recycle a box and decorate it somehow...but how?! Finally, out of the blue, as it usually happens to me, I remembered I always keep small scraps of decorative paper leftover from when I make cards, just in case I can use them for some other project. This was finally the time to use them! So I started gluing them to a shoe box in a sort of patchwork style.
To give it a lasting finish I glazed it with clear PVA glue and added their initials on the lid to personalise it. I thought it would make a lovely keepsake box they could use to fill with memories of their wedding day. I was so excited to give Donna this box filled with all her stationery goodies and I was so pleased when she told me she loved everything! I feel so lucky to have had the chance to contribute to make a friend's wedding day a little bit more special.
