Gift Box

Create a great wedding gift box by embellishing three stackable boxes with flowers, beads and a vintage cake topper. Spray the boxes a cream color, add different-sized beads with hot glue and embellish with more bridal-themed accessories.

Memo Board

Create a wedding memo board out of a vintage door frame and corkboard and use an old cake topper to embellish it. Use it to plan your wedding or keep it up year-round as a reminder of your special day. Pair an old door header with a bulletin board, trim it out with lumber and paint white. Add letters at the top to spell "Our Wedding" or add numbers to state the date.
