My sister designed these plantable boxed invitations for my bachelorette party! It is printed on plantable wildflower seed paper and layered on a sheet of walnut veneer which lays on a bed of dried moss with rhinestones dusted throughout. The flowers are paper flowers!
Hi there. We know you all are busy with DIY holiday projects, and we figured that's probably why no one has posted a project photo yet...totally understandable. So, we've decided to put this challenge on hold and restart after the New Year when you have more time DIY wedding projects. We'll still have the same great prizes, and even more inspiration by then. Sorry to disappoint anyone who has already started creating your shaker box save the date...just hold on to it until we restart. Thanks! xoxo
