decorating the OUTSIDE of your boxed invite

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies!

I'm making boxed invititations which are mailable. I got them from ULINE.COM brown tab-lock style. The inside looks awesome! I'm lining it with blue tissue paper and placing my pocketfold invite inside along with mini shells and a large starfish on top.

Now I'm stuck with what to do to the outside! I want to stay within the "destination" theme, but it needs to be jazzed up a bit so it doesnt just look like a brown cardboard box lol!And Since its tab-lock, I need a way to "seal" it, especially for the ones I mail.

Any ideas or pictures of your own would be great ladies!

you can use a custom monogram and have it made into stickers, like thru zazzle.com or somewhere, to seal the box shut. lots of girls here have used one of our invite vendors to help design a monogram, and then DIY the sticker thru an online vendor. i used sarah, with sproullie designs for my monogram, and loved it so much!

This is what I did with the outside of mine...

I used heavy scrapbooking paper to make a band and then cardstock to make the square. The band didn't go all the way around the box; I glued it to the inside of the box. I used the square to write the names of the guests. I had a few friends who I wanted to invite with a guest and I had nowhere to write this. Also, I felt like it made the invitations a little more personal. Hope this helps :)
