Decorative Box for Wedding Shoes

In one of my previous updates, I told you that I bought some shoes for the wedding!  While I can't show you the shoes, I can show you this!

I didn't really want to leave my beloved wedding shoes in the ugly store box, so I decided to wrap it up.

I just used some wedding wrapping paper I'd already bought for a friend's wedding, then wrote "Bride's Wedding Shoes" on the top.  I lined the inside of the box with kraft paper.  My ink was starting to smudge, so I took some clear sealant spray paint to go over the top to keep the ink settled.  I might attack it with glitter sometime, but since I still have 5 months before the wedding, I'm pretty sure all the glitter would fall off.

**** Edited Post Wedding with New Shoebox****

Since a few months down the road, when I went to get my dress altered I realized I needed heels instead of flats, I had to change shoes.  The shoebox for my new shoes had a really cute pattern, so I stayed with the cute pattern and covered the brand name with wedding-ish card stock.
Where each yellow circle surrounded by pearls is is where I covered the brand name with cardstock.  

I used "The Walk to 'I do'" since these would be the shoes I'd be walking the isle in.

Here are the shoes!

Even though I'd already bought shoes I loved, the flats just weren't going to work.  These heels have a really wide base (since my wedding was outdoors), and were pretty comfortable.  And I really do love the pattern that came on the box!


It is finally Christmas break, so that means getting lots of wedding stuff out of the way!

My Break-Checklist:

  • Finish sending save-the-dates when the fiance gets me addresses for his friends...
  • Figure out veil and hairstyles.
  • Figure out dress alterations.
  • Craft my butt off.
  • Design Invitations.
  • Enjoy Christmas.
  • Make money.
  • Decide what I'm going to do about cakes.
  • Take a stopwatch and time how long it takes to walk down the "isle."
  • Take a tape measure and measure-the-heck out of everything so I can draw up a better plan.
  • Talk to photographers.
  • Things I'm forgetting...
