Wedding Tutorial: DIY Bridesmaid Gift Box

If you caught yesterday’s post, I shared a quick tutorial on crafting the perfect gift box for a flower girl. Today, I’m taking the same goodies I used in the flower girl’s gift with the addition of a few more grown-up gifts and vessels to transform them into gifts for your bridesmaids.DSC_0527 In the above example, I used a vintage French champagne cooler instead of a gift box because what friend wouldn’t want one of those?! And the best part is I have an awesome stock of French champs buckets for sale in my CB Vintage shop! I collected them while brocanting through the Champagne region of France and would love to see them go to a group of cherished bridesmaids. 😉

I also love the idea of getting a little more creative with the gifting vessel and using something hardly anyone would think of using like this antique German Zwiebeln (onion!) holder. These enamel “chicken wire” kitchen holders actually make great catch-alls – I even have one hanging by my entry door to collect miscellaneous stuff. If you’re interested in it, I’m happy to sell – just send me a note at sarah(at)

I love that they’re the perfect size for a gift box and your girls can use them in their kitchens to decorate and store kitchen goodies.
