Crafting for Hire: Quinceañera Card Box

I have been so busy with projects and life.Its not until you get sick that you get the time to sit still long enough actually write a post of all the things you’ve been busy doing. That being said I want to share a project I worked on a few weeks ago. It is a card box for a lovely young lady’s Quinceañera.  All I knew at the onset of the project was that her color scheme was coral and navy blue. I was amazed at how well I color matched her dress sight unseen. I was very happy to have played a part in her day. She looked beautiful. 

The process for creating the box was pretty simple. I bought the nesting set of paper mache boxes from JoAnns. 

I cut the bottom of the top box and the lid of the bottom box and used spray glue to cover them in navy blue fabric. I cut a slot in the top of  the lid of the top box and covered it in fabric as well. Once all sections were covered in fabric I lined the top box up to the bottom and glued them together with hot glue. I let the entire box dry for about an hour and then started the decorating with tulle, rhinestones, and a mini tiara. The final touch was the word CARDS cut out using my Silhouette Cameo out of silver glitter cardstock.
