Card box (pic heavy)

Dh parent's celebrated their 5oth wedding anniversary over Memorial weekend. I said that I would make a card box and centerpieces for them.
I LOVE how this box turned out! I can't remember exactly where I saw the original idea though:confused:
This is what I started with:

What I ended with:

Here are the centerpieces...I made 20!

Wow Lena! That card box is stunning. Love how you showed what you started with. It's really beautiful. And those centerpieces are so cool too! Is that a tractor on one of them? How cool! You are very talented and they are lucky to have you! TFS

Yes, I did put tractors in some of them. His parents farmed for years so I figured it was very fitting. That is also why I used the metal buckets. I thought they looked more 'farmy'.
