DIY Wedding Wednesday: How To Get Creative with a Decorative Vintage Box

With Mother’s Day just around the corner we’re totally in the mood to celebrate the awesome women in our lives. When brainstorming how we wanted to gift the girls we care for most we knew one thing for sure, the ideas had to be thoughtful and unique. And so with our creative caps on we put ourselves to the challenge of using one pretty decorative vintage box and we came up with a variety of sentimental ways to turn it into a truly special present. As an added bonus, the ideas we came away with not only make for great Mother’s Day treats, they also happen to double as amazing bridesmaids, maid of honor or mother of the bride / groom gifts. Here’s how to get the looks.

Look #1: In Case of Emergency

What girl doesn’t appreciate being prepared for any beauty hiccup that may arise! Treat her to a mini personalized emergency kit of her own to make sure she’s always prepared and a bit pampered.
