I'm sure almost everyone has seen these very cute, "Be my maid?" boxes on pinterest or just around the net...

I bookmarked these along with a few other DIY projects along the same lines but decided that these boxes had to be made for my bridesmaids. 

 

I was very nervous because whenever I see something beautiful online and try to recreate it, it usually ends up looking like something a toddler put together. But I am very happy to say that with A LOT of patience, they turned out amazing!

I got the cigar boxes and lettering from Michael's. I spray painted the boxes white. Got a sample of Disney paint from Home Depot, and some map wrapping paper (to line the bottom) from Paper-Ya. 

 

Because we're getting married in Mexico, I made sure to include a mini-bottle of tequila with a tag that reads "Break in case of emergency."

 

A great victory for my DIY self-esteem!

Do you mind me asking what kind of info you put in the boxes? :)

Hey LaurenR,

 

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, but this thread doesn't show up on my feed for some reason.

 

I put in colour swatches for what colour dresses I wanted them to find. Some pictures of mismatched bridal parties I liked for them to get an idea. I also put in sheets with info on our day (it was kind of redundant after the save the date) what i wanted them to do, which was mainly support me and look great, who everyone was and why i chose them, and then what i wanted them to do for their dresses and shoes.
