DIY: Card Box!

So, at the last minute, my Mom, Sister, cousin and I decided to DIY a card box last night and it turned out SUPER cute. We were up until 3:30am working on everything, but I'm so pleased how it turned out!!!

We didn't do the bow on the top yet...so we just threw some ribbon up top to look like a bow (for the photo).

    It looks great, and just in case your bow doesn't turn out the way you would like, Michaels will make one for you if you bring in your ribbon.
    I am not a bow-maker, especially, big and fluffy bows.

    It looks really good! Did you cover the boxes with fabric?

    where did you put the slot in for your card box, and also where did you get the boxes at? It does look really cute. I was thinking of making mine too, thanks for the inspiration!
