Tilda & Edwin Book Box Wedding Card for my friend

Good morning and happy weekend everyone. Just wanted to update to you that my dad is out of the hospital and is back to his nursing home. A great thing for him and our family. Thank you for all of your emails and prayers :o)

Today I prepared this book box card photo display for a friend of mine who recently had her wedding in Hawaii. Congratulations to D & C!! I delivered this for her, so I think now it'll be a good time to post this. I wanted to make a personalize wedding project using her photo(s), but just couldn't think of any idea. The other day, I received my flowers and embellishment orders from Wild Orchard Craft, so I thought maybe I can add a little flower arrangement on my project, so I decided to do this book box with lots of embellishments.

This box is made with Bride Tilda and Groom Edwin from Magnolia-licious. There are many more wedding them stamps from the Wedding Collections 2010 that you can use to replace the stamps, so if you are planning to do a wedding theme book box, be sure to check them out at the store's website.

I am using this project for challenges, please scroll down to the bottom.

Here is my finished project.


Here is a closer shot for you to see the side.


Here is a view when this book box is opened. This box can make a fun display on a table or shelf.
(Sorry, but due to respectful of others, I covered my friends' faces on the photo)


Picture on the left, I added 4 metal corners and embossed the pink DP inside the cover. Picture on the right, I put a picture of my friend and her husband, then added some flowers embellishments inside the box.

Here is the side and back view of this box

Thank your stopping by today. I also made a Hawaiian theme cake card for her in addition to this project. The Hawaiian cake card will be post a little later, so please do come by again to check it out. I hope you like what I prepared for you today.
