Last week I shared with you a tutorial on how to make the Wedding Card Box, and in keeping with the wedding theme, today I'd like to share the basket I hand-made for our Flower Girl.

After wrapping the handles with satin ribbon, I didn't like the look of where it attached to the basket. Normally one would just add ribbons and fru-fru to cover up the handles but Amanda was going for something less frilly. There was also a seam where the two linings were sewn together that I didn't care for on the edge of the basket, so I decided to add some pearls to cover that up. Well, a few pearls later....and the final touch was adding a big silk flower to one side and called it done.
Here's another wedding craft project you might want to consider: making your own aisle decorations! Easy enough....I Googled "wedding aisle decorations" and a bunch of ideas popped up! . I made these paper cones to hold white hydrangeas in the wedding theme colors.
I hope you have enjoyed the glimpse into my wedding crafting and will be inspired to try your own wedding craft too!
