DIY Details

Here is how I used the card box.

For our wedding we decided not to do the traditional guest book.  Instead we did a time capsule guestbook. This is a guestbook that allows your wedding guests to write a note to the bride and groom that will be opened by the couple on a wedding anniversary in the future.

I purchased two locking, rotating wedding card boxes, The Perfect Card Box, from Etsy.  You can find it {here}. It holds 4 pictures, 5 if you use the cover.  I fell in love with the box because it locked and it rotated!  So I got the idea to use it as a time capsule where my guests would write us a note or sentiment that we would open in either 1 or 5 years.

The boxes came in black and white.  My wedding colors were purple and gold.  I purchased the black box with the intent to spray paint it gold but when it arrived I actually loved it and figured that it would break up all the purple and gold at the wedding.

Note – these are all old images from my iphone taken when I did the time capsules about a year ago and was sending pictures to my bridesmaids. 🙂

I used this purple and gold card stock purchased from Michaels through my wedding in several DIY projects. The exact name is the Recollections Signature paper in purple and gold.  You can find it {Here}.

I got some of our engagement shoot pictures printed and applied four of them to the purple and gold cardstock.

I purchased stensils from Michaels and used gold and purple glitter to add the numbers 1 and 5 to cardstock. Purple 1 to gold paper and Gold 5 to Yellow paper.   I cut everything to fit the specs of the windows in the cardbox and inserted them.

I had our initials made into gold glitter decals for the top of the card box.  Before inserting them I placed the gold and purple card stock under the glass and applied the decal directly on the glass.  I also had our monogram placed on pens and note cards.  In the ended I decided to round the edges of the note cards.  They looked cuter.  The smaller decals pictured were used on another DIY project.

Finally, here is a video that shows the rotation of the time capsule guestbook.

I plan on giving away one of these card boxes as I originally purchased 3 but only used 2.  Stay tuned for a giveaway and a chance to make your own time capsule or use it as a card box!

Happy Planning Coordinated Brides!
