First things first ...how to make up boxes for handmade cards

This informative video is a step by step guide showing you how to assemble your lidded wedding invitation boxes

When to replace an envelope with a presentation box

Handmade wedding invitations can be a little bulky for classic envelopes as you may have big bows decorating the fronts or lots of enclosures bundled together inside. Embellished wedding invitations might have sparkling diamante craft embellishments on the front which could press through an envelope, spoiling that, all-important, first impression.

Laser-cut designs and pocket fold invitations are also ideal candidates for presentation boxes. Laser cuts are very delicate and can spoil if not handled carefully when placing in envelopes and pocketfold invites can be bulky once filled with all your wedding information. Having pockets means they are designed to be filled and hold lots of information

Quality invitation boxes come in stunning board stocks

If you use a wedding invitation presentation box you can tie big bows around the outside of the box! Boxes for handmade cards aren't a new thing but they weren't always available in such lovely board stocks or considered an integral part of the invitation.

You can print a decorative top to stick on the box, either with an address printed in a pretty calligraphic font or just the names of the recipients and a little additional embellishment

Boxes will transform already beautiful invitations into luxury wedding invites with all the added theatre of opening a special gift box rather than an envelope. Of course, presentation boxes become wedding memory boxes, protecting the invitations for future generations to see.

When it comes to decoration, go big or go home!

If you enjoy crafting and would love to make handcrafted wedding stationery you can create whatever styles you like and use any embellishments you like. You may have a textured paper you want to use, special embellishments or dried flowers you'd love to use for a personal touch but need to protect.

All these options may lead to multi-layered stationery where you mat and layer lots of lovely papers and card. You might have textured pebble papers or wired ribbon bows you don't want to crush. Even a square of card acting as a board protector may not add the protection you need.

Once you add in enclosures e.g. save the dates, accommodation information, gift lists etc. The invitations can be really quite thick so would distort their envelopes and not look quite as professional as you might like.

Decorating card boxes with lids

Before you assemble your wedding invitation boxes you can run them through your printer to add further pattern or text. You can also trap ribbon as you assemble the box lid to give a smart strip of satin or organza in your chosen colour across the lid with no cut edges showing.

Boxed Cards are a card and a beautiful gift in one!

Special wedding cards, for example, when you ask your friend or family member to be your bridesmaid, could be presented in boxes as can pretty thank you cards made after your special day. Imagine how thrilled your parents or closest helpers would be to receive a lovely handmade card in a presentation box.

Keepsake wedding invitations and cards that are being posted in their boxes will require the lids to be securely fastened to the bases. Clear tape will work but it's almost nicer to make the closure really obvious and part of the design. One idea would be to print the recipient's address on a wide label that runs across the front but also down the sides and onto the back of the box.

As guests prepare for your big day they can also use the box to keep everything together including your accommodation confirmation or any notes they've made in advance of your wedding day. You may have received your invite in an envelope but realise a presentation box is a perfect way to present your wedding gift.  For smaller gifts, they are a lovely alternative to a traditional gift bag and can be posted into a wedding post box for additional security!
