When I first had the idea of the little diorama in the
box, I thought it would become an invite or save the date. It
evolved into a non traditional wedding album of sorts… a souvenir
or keepsake, a little box of sentiment, which could be given to the
couple’s parents (or a maid of honor,, or any special person) to
commemorate the day. I think this is an easy one to customize
just by changing colors or the elements in the little scene. Of
course adding your photos completely makes it your own too!
What You’ll Need:
Cut a piece of paper slightly smaller than these dimensions (one for
the top and one for the bottom). Glue down these papers using your
paper glue. Be sure that the tails of the ribbon in the box lid
remain free. . (see figure 2)
You can do this free hand, with rubber stamps, or use your
computer and print out images or text. Cut out your design (it should
be the same dimensions as your box lid) and use your paper glue to
adhere it to the box top. (see figure 3)
shorter than the height of of the box. Use hot glue to attach the
base of the tree to the bottom side of the box. (see figure 4)
(using your glue gun) on your tree branches. (I found it easier to
hold them with tweezers during this process). (see figure 5)
Use the ribbon to secure the pictures in the box lid by tying the tails
into a bow. (see figure 6).
