When my daughter mentioned she was getting married, I went to work making lots of things. One of the items I made was this ring box; It’s so simple and easily adaptable.
Here’s some of our wedding pics from that beautiful day in Georgia…
For this wedding ring box you’ll need:
1 small box of any kind.
Paper, synthetic, or dried flowers
glue gun or tacky glue
decorative (thicker) paper
styrofoam to fill the empty box
2 small wooden discs
Mr. & Mrs. stickers
First, find a small box.
I used an old cedar box I got as a graduation gift (from a local furniture company) when I graduated from high school. All the female graduates got one..it was the days of “hope chests”, remember those? OK, I’m old.
Then, I used the paper flowers to cover the wording on the box lid.
After gluing down the styrofoam within the box, I used scrapbook paper to cover it.
I added the Mr. and Mrs. stickers to the wooden discs and then glued the discs to the paper. I was going to paint the lettering, but found this to be easier. I also added some ribbon and a special keepsake pin I got while I was in China. (I’ve been keeping it since the 80’s for this particular celebration…some day. 🙂 )
It’s the symbol used in Chinese weddings.
Fú Fú (Double Happiness)
You see these signs all over the doors, etc..but usually in the color RED!
Wiki: Double Happiness (simplified Chinese: 双喜; traditional Chinese: 雙喜; pinyin: shuāngxǐ) sometimes translated as Double Happy, is a Chinese traditional ornament design, commonly used as a decoration and symbol of marriage. Outside of China, it is also used in United States, Europe and Southeast Asia.
