Bridal Shower Gift: Magnetic Memento Box and Thank You Cards

My friend Teresa...whom I've known for over 23 years...has a big event rapidly approaching - the wedding of her only daughter.  How exciting is that?  I made this magnetic box and a set of 50 thank you cards as a bridal shower gift for her. I couldn't seem to get a good photo, but this is the top. The box can be used to keep wedding momentos...invites, napkins/favors etc. in.  Hope she likes it :-)

The metal piece in the upper right corner says: On this day I will marry my best friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with, love.

I used some pearlescent paint mixed with an ink refiller to get the color for the heart and then covered it with a crackle paint to make it look vintage.

Marie with a :-)
