What are you most proud of? THAT IT HELD TOGETHER AND I DID STAPLE IT , ONE BOX TO THE OTHER AND ALSO HOT GLUED IT TOGETHER, FOR EXTRA STRENGTH. AND IT DID COME OUT BEAUTIFUL. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, FINDING THE LARGE 50 WAS THE HARDEST PART. ONLY PARTY EXPRESS HAD THE 50 I WAS LOOKING FOR. ALL THE OTHER STORES TOLD ME THEY DON'T CARRY MUCH 50 ANNIVERSARY THINGS.. BUT PARTY EXPRESS DID.. ALSO, I BOUGHT A CARD WITH A BIG 50 ON THE FRONT, AND CUT IT OFF AND HOT GLUED IT ON THE LACE DOILEY. WORKS FINE.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? THINK ABOUT HOW HIGH YOU WANT THE BOX TO BE.. THE COLORS OF THE WEDDING PARTY OR IF 25 OR 50 YEARS ANNIVERSARY, THE SILVER OR GOLD HIGHLIGHTS TO BE USED, AND DON'T FORGET TO MAKE A SLIT IN THE MIDDLE BOX AND THE BOTTOM BOX TO GET THE CARDS OUT. LATER IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE TAKEN APART TO GET THEM OUT. AND CAN BE RENTED OUT OR USED AGAIN. THAT'S WHAT I DID.. CHANGED THE COLORS FOR A WEDDING THEME..
