And the two shall become one and store things in this here box I made

Two sweet peeps at my work are marrying each other in a bang-up ceremony July 4th in Michigan. I had to miss their intra-office shower this month, so I got busy and altered up something just for them. (I know, a gift card would have been so much better, but hey, there's still wedding presents to buy).
Amy and Brian's wedding colors are white, red, black and silver, so using flocked paper, velvet ribbon, beaded/braided ribbon and a passementerie closure I covered a cigar box, wherein they can keep some special treasures or maybe wedding cards.
The inside is fully covered with a black and while paisley/scroll paper and a faded red and cream love text, and more ribbon. On top there is a spot for a photo, with a frame trimmed in paper lace. I hope they like it. I do. I guess that's stealing their line.
You can read more about the upcoming nuptials on their blog by clicking on Amy's name above. And my office must be all-in-the-family-friendly. Amy's mom works there, too. Which means Brian will be working with his mother-in-law every day. I wonder if there's a handbook for that?

HI Gina! I thought I had left a comment on your last post, but apparently I did not! anyways. Love the box! which I told you on flickr already.. but never hurts to say it again! I feel like I'm always in such hurry when I'm blog hopping because there are sooo many wonderful blogs out here and I try to hard to keep up and comment on them all.. just about impossible.. because then I find more and more that I like......
anyways! have a lovely lovely day my friend! I do plan on checking out your etsy, hopefully this weekend...(though I'm on call.. so who knows what kind of a weekend I will have!) and with that said.. If I dont get off of here and get ready for work, I will be late!


Gina, that is a lovely gift! I'm sure that the happy couple is going to LOVE it!

What a terrific gift! I would have loved to have a special box like that to store my wedding treasures.
