This project is from a bride whose bridesmaids lived in different states. It’s a really cute and touching way to ask  your best friends if they will stand by your side for one of the biggest moments in  your life. This is the perfect gift because it comes from your heart and your hands.  In each box  she placed photos of an inspiration board, cards with the details of the wedding and paint chips of her wedding colors. Get more details about this project at Wedding Chicks.
