I wanted to share with you the gift boxes that I gave my bridesmaids at our engagement brunch. Ladies! I did everything myself with the help of my husband. All the products that I used here are from Michaels.
Let’s start with the actual box, I went to Michaels because they have all these craft items and lots of boxes. They mostly have the cardboard boxes, but mean while looking around I saw 3 white boxes of these on clearance for $10 each!! I fell in love with these boxes because I didn’t want my bridesmaids to have a box and just throw it out. I wanted to give them something that they were going to use. And these boxes were perfect for that because they can use it to store their jewelry or whatever they want. I have four maids, but I did find the same box at another Michaels location.
On the top of each box, I placed a photo of a special moment of my bridesmaid and me and placed it with a shimmery silver tape. I wanted them to feel special and have something remembered of our childhood. I also did a collage of the colors and the idea of the wedding. The invitation of asking each maid to be my bridesmaid or maid of honor, I did it on word document. I do not recall which exact paper I used, but its like an Ivory shimmering cardboard paper from Michaels, and I placed it with a small ribbon bow on the top.
I gave the maids each a purple T-shirt to wear for any wedding event that we held or for the bachelorette party. We decided to make the shirts ourselves than spend about $20 for each shirt. I spend about $100 for everything for this DIY project.
My husband wanted something special also for his best man, so I created this bow tie invitation. I wanted something more surprising but my husband is very simple so that’s what he decided he wanted to give. Both white and black papers are from Michaels and the bow tie is from Marshall.
Yes! I do have two maid of honors (best friends) because they are always helping me with everything and 2 bridesmaids my sister in law and my cousin/sister who wasn’t able to make it because of college.
Ladies, you can save lots of money creating this small special details yourself. If you have any questions, please let me know and I will be glad to help.
