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
This is what I started with:
What I ended with:

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'.
Ack, you're another Super Mommy on here!!!Can you sprinkle some of your super hero dust this way?!! I'd be happy with just a quarter of your super powers. These are so cool!!!!!!! The cake box rocks and loooove your centerpieces.
