I couldn't decide on a card box that I wanted. So when I saw this picture where a box was made out of 4 photo frames I was hooked But I didn't want to make people turn the box. So being crafty in nature I took three photo frames unfinished and Put the hing on them. The Frame in the middle which is actually a mirror that I wanted to paint on but didn't work, That frame actually has 4 hinges on it. two at the top on each side and two at the bottom on each side. Then I attached the two other frames one on each side of the mirror frame.
After attaching each frame I took the piece of foam board I bought,(white) and I opened the frames from side to side of the foam board. I marked how tall up i needed to cut the board and then cut it. After this I took my hot glue gun and attached the foam board to each side of the frames making a shape of some kind lol. I then took the shape I had and traced a bottom and top out of the remaining foam board. I then attached the bottom of the board to the bottom piece of the foam and frames with hot glue.
While this is drying I took the top piece and cut a opening in it. I then took the left over material from the flowergirl baskets and covered the top piece with it.
Once everything dried I placed the top on. It actually still bends a little so that the lid just fits right inside the top of the box. Once I get our engagement pictures done I will place them inside the frames which isn't hard to do. Also where I thought that the mirror would be paint-able and wouldn't work for me. I took a precious moments card that I had apart and hot glued it into the middle of the mirror. I also painted the frames to make them finished.
See pictures below!!!!

First off this picture is me and the love of my life right before he asked the big question on New Years Eve infront of our closest friends. We have been together for 9 years now and are finally getting married! I'm so excited! We both are born and raised in Charleston,WV. We also went to high school together that is actually were we meet and fell in love!
Neither of us wanted a huge wedding so we have picked a location at a local state park. We both love to be outdoors. As most people can say about me I am very old fashioned. I dont need things to be way over the top but they still need to be nice! My big worries are my dress, flowers, cake(s), and photos. So far I have gotten my dress. My uncle is taking care of my flowers. An old friend of mine is going to be doing my photos and the cake(s) is still up in the air.
We are expecting 100 to 130 people.
I had no problem planning two wedding for close friends but now that its my turn I'm having the worst luck trying to figure out how I want things. Any ideas or help you can throw at me please do!
