Dress box

A friend asked if I could make a dress box for her. I was actually kind of surprised at how fast it came together. It is similar in shape and design to those seen on some of the wedding favor sites. It doesn't require any adhesive to put together and has many possibilities.



I don't have any weddings coming up but thought about how it's Prom time here where I live. The juniors shops at the mall are all filled with fancy dresses, shoes and accessories. So, instead of making my box in all white, representative of the bride, I used a cute floral patterned paper. I added some fun glitz using Stickles and a sheer sash of ribbon.



The size is small enough to tuck a yummy treat or pretty pair of earrings inside for the young lady recipient.


Hope you like it.

  13. Jen, I love this dress. I think it would be darling for a bridal shower. But saying this and I hate to ask, would it be possible to make a cut file of a dress in a card form for the baby bug. I certainly understand if you aren't able. It's just my son's getting married and I think this would be perfect for a shower invite.
    Thanks for your consideration
