Accordion Box Invitations

I had some down time last week, so I spent an afternoon working on bridesmaid invitations. They turned out great, and my girls loved getting the surprise in the mail.

To make these accordion-style invitations, I followed this tutorial by Jordan Ferney of Oh Happy Day. I attached charms and trinkets that I found at my favorite gift shop, Lucca.

I found a tutorial on wool pom poms and made cute box toppers with this chunky roving wool from Martha Stewart Crafts. In retrospect, I should have used a finer gauge, but the chunky stuff will do in a pinch. I also decorated the lids with silver washi tape. If you haven’t used washi tape, I highly recommend it. It’s so fun and comes in all sorts of pretty colors and patterns.
