make-your-own-layered-ribbon-vases

This layered ribbon tutorial was inspired by a DIY on how to make your own favor boxes, demonstrated by Tulle Box Design on the fabulous, Wedding Chicks site.

When we spotted these clever ideas applied to a basic white favor box, we knew we had to try it on a cardboard blumebox.  While any size blumebox would work, we used a 4″ white cube blumebox.

With just four supplies needed and super simple instructions, you can make a layered ribbon box in no time.

1) Apply two strips of double stick tape to each side of the blumebox (8 strips total).

2) Measure out one strip of ribbon that covers the circumference of the box and cut. Proceed to cut the necessary amount of ribbon needed to cover the entire blumebox.

3) Starting from the base or bottom of the blumebox, proceed to stick ribbon to the double stick tape. Extra tape might be needed on the ends of the cut ribbon to ensure a clean join.

After finishing the light pink satin ribbon vase, we wanted to try a version with some light and bright pink ruffled ribbon we had in stock. By adding the cake pop/lollipop insert, the layered ribbon container transformed into a pretty awesome pink ombre cake pop display box.

Comic-Book-Baby-Shower

Comic Book Love was being showered over at our customer, Pot and Box’s awesome event space recently.

Some lucky momma and her bambino were given some love. . . comic con style. Now we only were sent pics of the centerpieces, seeing as Pot and Box used 4″ black and white cube blumeboxes for the vases, and we love the elegant hipness that made the table pop!

For more creative loveliness (container gardening, floral design) be sure to check out Pot and Box in Ann Arbor, MI.

Moss-Centerpieces-DIY

Moss-Centerpieces-DIY-2

If you have not worked much with the blumebox product line, you will quickly discover that the cardboard material in which the flower container is made from, allows for endless possibilities. This tutorial on making a moss centerpiece is no exception.

With four supplies (4″ blumebox cube, floral foam, bag of moss, and a glue gun) you can have a moss adorned vase in no time. I used our 4″ sage chain link blumebox cube to blend in with the color of the moss and wouldn’t you know it, it is on sale for $2.50.  All in you, are creating a moss centerpiece for $3.50 each, not including flowers.

Let’s get started, why don’t we…Start on one panel of the blumebox and begin gluing in small patches and adhere moss to glue. Avoid spreading hot glue over whole panel as it dries rapidly and wont adhere the moss to the box. Work your way around the blumebox until all the panels are covered with moss.

Onto filling this rustic beauty. Size your floral foam and place into the plastic bag (included in the blumebox) then insert into the moss covered blumebox cube. Push down as much plastic as possible so that it is not visible, but not too much to where the water will leak between the bag and box. Carefully (I recommend a watering can) begin watering the floral foam so that it begins absorbing. Water until foam is well soaked up with water. The box will be quite heavy, which is what you want.

For the flowers, we used ranunculus and simply placed into the floral foam. Once we finished designing the flowers, we filled the base with more moss to cover the plastic and top off that country chic look we love. And there you have it! This DIY moss centerpiece would be suitable for a country chic wedding, rustic farm rehearsal dinner or Easter brunch!
