♥ A {VERY} Colorful Card Box! ♥ {You'll need UR Sunglasses!!}

My niece Francesca is having her Sweet Sixteen party next weekend and she told me the other night that she is having a hard time trying to find a fun card box that matches her theme or colors. (You know the box that everyone puts their cards in at a party!) Mostly they are just plain white boxes. Their are different shapes like a church for a wedding or an octagon shape. But nothing that fits her theme which is "Candy Land". {I had picked up these adorable Candy ornaments in Target in all different colors to decorate the restaurant with. So cute!} Her colors are rainbow colors...bright orange, hot pink, electric blue, etc. So when she said she needed a card box, of course my mind when into overdrive!! And here is what I came up with!
I took some different shaped and sizes paper mache boxes and I cut out a slit in the front of one and also the bottom of that box. I then cut out the center of the top of the large box, so that when the cards are inserted into the slot, they fall into the larger box.
I then covered the boxes with some bright orange and pink kraft wrapping paper. Added some rolled tissue papers, flowers, hems and a wooden "F" which I smothered with bright green glitter.
After the party this will look cute sitting in the corner of her bright pink room! I hope she likes it!!

If anyone is interested in purchasing one of these in any color scheme or theme, please shoot me an email! (in my sidebar)

I will be back tomorrow with the winner of my giveaway! Thank you very much for all your Birthday wishes! I had fun yesterday turning 29!! {again} hehe Actually, add 10 years to that! Next year, the BIG 40!! Ugh!

Have a great night!!

Hugs...
