- lace elastic, 50 cm long

- white tape, 50 cm long

- white beads

- cardboard for hats

* Choose a bottle with clear glass - it will be easier to wrap it with a white inlay, as it is translucent.

* Use construction glue, as it quickly helps to stick ribbons on the bottle, and it does not have color and smell. But it is worth noting that if you glue tapes of dark shades, but use a little glue, it can leave white spots when dried.

1. First we make from one bottle of the groom.

1.1 White shirt - for it you need to stick 2-3 layers of strips.

1.2 Costume - continue to glue strips of dark shade.

This is how it looks from behind.

1.3 After you have glued the bottle to half (to the place where the bottle becomes flat), start wrapping it with a piece of tape, occasionally using glue in the places of each turn.

2. From the second bottle we are preparing the bride.

2.1 First, a piece of white ribbon must be collected in an accordion - for this, use a thread and a needle.

2.2 Glue the tape with an accordion, and then begin to glue the white tape in the same way as the bottle of the groom.

3.1 Collect the beads on a string - it will be a necklace for the bride.

3.2 For the groom you need to glue 3 rhinestones, buttons and bows, as well as a butterfly.

5.2 Wrap a hat-cylinder of the groom with a black tape.

5.3 For the bride, the hat needs to be wrapped with a bake of white color, and then decorated with a piece of fabric. You can also decorate it with small flowers.

Box for the wedding with their own hands

If at the wedding will collect money, then you need to prepare a special box. As you understand, it is not necessary to buy it, but you can do it yourself and decorate it as you like.

- roll of thick paper

- fabric to wrap the box

- glue gun (PVA glue or superglue)

1. Prepare the basis of the chest.

1.1 Choose a cardboard box for the base, since after using it as a container for collecting money, it can be used to store various souvenirs and small items.

The box should also be big. In this example, a paper box was used.

On the image you can see the markup where you want to trim the box. This is necessary in order to make the chest lower and more compact. You can also notice the bends of the box - this can eventually create a relief on your product, which means getting rid of it.

1.2 Take a scotch tape and glue the slot, bend the sidewall, and a couple of strips so that you can glue the sheet. In this example, 160g / m2 paper was used, and eventually a smooth, even surface was obtained.

Likewise, cover the entire box with paper. This not only makes the chest smooth, but also closes the unnecessary pattern on the box.

* Even if you wrap a box with a cloth, the pattern may show through.

2. In this example, curtain fabric was used, since it is rather dense, but thin, not crumpled and cut well.

Put the box on a large piece of cloth, and then adjust the size for the box.

3. When you cover with a cloth, carefully fasten each side in turn, starting from the bottom of the box and then the walls. Secure the fabric with scotch tape. Using double-sided tape, secure the fabric to the inside of the box.

4. Cover the joints. First you need to know what the length of the tape should be - for this, measure not only the height, but also the inward bend. Next, cut a piece of tape and process the edges with a lit match so that it does not climb.

At the corners of the chest, glue double-sided tape and cover the inner seam with lace, using double-sided tape as well.

5. Making the base cover for the chest.

Prepare a cardboard - its size should be as dense as the lid. Measure the length of the cap and cut out the piece. Make a small tongue out of cardboard.

Attach the tab to the cover using double-sided tape. Also, the cover must be pasted over with paper, like the box.

Mark with a marker where the hole will be, and make it with a clerical knife.

6. We decorate the cover.

The lid should be covered (like the box) with a cloth and decorated with ribbon, cut into corners and attached with double-sided tape. Glue tape around the hole.

Prepare a lace, needle and white thread. Lace the shape of the hole, and fold the edges into folds at one of the corners. This construction now needs to be attached to the lid with a glue gun.

Similarly, decorate the lid of the lid, but do not remove the edges of the corners, just treat them with a hot match. Attach the cap with a glue gun.

Add a bow to the tongue - use glue to attach it. The bow itself can also be decorated, for example, with rhinestones.

* Put the lid on the box carefully, because its volume has increased due to the many layers of paper and fabric.

How to choose a little chest?

If there is no time or opportunity to make a chest to collect money at a wedding on your own, then you can purchase the finished product at the wedding accessories shop.

Choosing a casket pay attention to such criteria:

  1. Drawer size. Its parameters should be such that several dozens of envelopes and greeting cards of the European standard are included in the chest without any difficulties. The optimal size of the box for the ceremony, consisting of 80 people, reaches approximately 20 cm by 30 cm, and the height should not be more than 20 centimeters. If you choose very big chest, it will attract the attention of guests and close the young in the photos.
  2. Number of chests for dowry. As a rule, only one casket is used, but if it is planned to invite more than 150 people to a celebration, then you can also prepare two boxes, slightly different in design style.
  3. The basis of the product. Many people will come to the ceremony and everyone will want to touch the casket. It may even be passed from person to person to deposit money. Therefore, if you choose a flimsy gift box for a wedding, it may not withstand such tortures and fall apart. Paper product will not work. Choosing a coffers of cardboard, pay attention to its corners and joints: they must be strengthened. And even better to buy a product, the base of which is made of plastic.
  4. Security. This is one of the most important moments. The money chest for the wedding must be securely and tightly closed for the entire period of the event so that no one except the newlyweds could open it. At the banquet there will be a lot of people and attendants. And someone will certainly want to covet the good of a young couple.
  5. Compatibility with the overall style of the holiday. The casket should be designed in the same style with all the accessories at the wedding. For example, if the book of wishes is decorated with a bow, then it should be present on the treasury. But hearts and roses will be in this case not "in cash". And if the whole celebration is held in eco style, the chairs are covered with sacking, linen is laid on the tables, and cotton is present on other items, then the chest should be covered with one of these materials.

The price of the chest starts from 270 rubles, so you can choose the product optimal in price and quality.

Why do you need a little chest?

The tradition of giving gifts to the newlyweds appeared a long time ago. But lately, many people have been giving money as gifts, for which the newly-made spouses will be able to purchase everything they need. The gift-giving ceremony is an important component of a wedding celebration, and in order for it to be perfect, you should prepare a container for money.

Ideal for these purposes is a cute and original little chest: firstly, it will complement other wedding attributes, secondly, it will hide the donated funds from prying eyes, thirdly, leave them in integrity and safety.

Wedding trunks are the most diverse: in the form of caskets, boxes, boxes and other similar items. The accessory can be standard rectangular or more interesting rounded. But there are also original models in the form of hearts, wedding cakes and other essential attributes of the wedding.

Method one

This box will have a rounded shape and a slot for money. For the manufacture will need:

  • a box with a lid (but not with a separate, but with an adjacent body),
  • pencil,
  • scissors,
  • masking tape
  • glue or glue gun,
  • wrapping paper or fabric
  • ribbons and rhinestones.

  1. First, from the box you need to make a blank, which will then be rounded and transformed into a nice casket. Take a pencil and start doing the markup. Draw semicircles on the side faces (their top points should reach the edges). At the front, draw a straight line that will connect the lowest points of the semicircles. Any excess need to be cut using sharp scissors.
  2. Then you will need to round the lid. To do this, either through each centimeter, bend it over the ruler, or, over short distances, make shallow grooves with scissors. Then give the lid the necessary semicircular shape.
  3. Then cut the semicircles along their lower edges, starting from the front corners and moving towards the back wall (do not touch it).
  4. Using masking tape, connect the rounded cover with the edges of the semicircles along their entire length. Если осталась лишняя часть спереди, её можно срезать или выровнять, чтобы она немного закрывала переднюю стенку ларца.
  5. If you want to make a hole at the top (it will be convenient to fold money into it without opening the box), then draw its outlines on the back of the lid in advance. The width should be about 1 centimeter, and the length should be about 18-20 cm. Immediately make a cut with scissors.
  6. How to decorate a little chest? You can cover it with a cloth or paper. To do this, cut the material in accordance with the size of the box. Attach it to the body can be glue or glue gun. At this stage, immediately make a slot. To do this, cut the material in the center of the hole and fill in all the excess, fixing it on the reverse side.
  7. Then you can go to the decor. To do this, tie the ribbon in a bow, using glue to attach it to the center edge of the cover. And on the entire surface of the casket, paste the rhinestones, preferably placing them in a certain order and at equal distances (you can pre-mark them so that the trunk looks neat and aesthetic).
  8. Done!

Second way

This method is more simple and involves the manufacture of a rectangular chest. Here is what you need:

  • a box with a separate lid (for example, from under the shoe),
  • soft material, such as sintepon,
  • glue or double sided tape,
  • scissors,
  • thread and needle (can be replaced with scotch tape or tape),
  • fabric for wrapping,
  • beads,
  • thick felt, color different from the base material (it is desirable to use pink or red).

  1. First you need to connect the lid to the box. To do this, stick it to the back of the tape or sew. It should move freely, but not fall off.
  2. Now cut the pieces of soft material. One will be fixed immediately on the front, bottom, back wall and cover. The other two will attach to the sides. Immediately glue the pieces to the box using glue or double-sided tape.
  3. Now cut the fabric. But it should be prepared on a different principle, to get a single pattern. The middle main part will be intended for the bottom, and from it there will be side and rear parts together with a cover. And in order to prevent the joints, leave the slots for laps (one for each section of the joint).
  4. To make the accessory look beautiful, sew beads to the material. Also cut hearts out of felt and sew them or glue them
  5. Tie the future trunk with the finished decorated fabric, fixing it with glue.

Tip: You can complement the trunk with ribbons that will tie and connect the case with the lid. They are glued to the lid itself, as well as to the center of the front wall at the top.


Some last tips:

  • When making an accessory for a wedding, consider the theme of the celebration, so that the chest is fully consistent with it.
  • This item should be perfectly combined with other wedding attributes. To do this, select the appropriate materials, color and decorative elements. And it is better to keep all accessories in the same style and make of the same or similar materials.
  • You can use a wide variety of materials for decoration, such as beads or whole beads, feathers, artificial flowers, sequins, satin ribbons, stones and rhinestones, lace and much more.

What you need to make a chest

Many couples at the wedding use the usual trays, on which guests leave envelopes with money, but this option is considered unsafe and not original, because money can easily fall out and be lost. And hiding the banknotes in your pocket is completely inconvenient - then the groom or the witness looks unpresentable, because the pockets are sticking out, and the overall gloss is broken. Therefore, handmade chests are the best solution for a wedding celebration.

A chest is a box of a rectangular shape or a small box in the form of a casket. It is beautifully decorated with all kinds of decoration materials, the color range is chosen to match the color of the thematic celebration or preference is given to the classic white, black, brown color. To add a touch of originality, you should arrange the box in a more irregular shape and with your own hands, adding symbolism to this attribute of the wedding.

Even more complex and unusual forms do not require the work of masters; everything can be done at home with your own hands. For example, the original and unusual solution would be to make a wedding money box in the form of a festive cake, a box or a house that symbolizes the family hearth. To complete this task, you will definitely need:

  • High-quality glue (PVA, stationery, better glue gun).
  • Cardboard box (medium size).
  • Stationery knife.
  • Scotch.
  • All kinds of decorative elements: beads, ribbons, pictures, pebbles, shells.
  • Colored paper for exterior and interior.

Tools and materials

In order to make really high-quality and visually beautiful chest for money with your own hands, you need to use the right materials and get the necessary tools. All materials can be easily found at home - in the storeroom or in the parent's garage, and decorative items should be found in handicraft stores. From the tools you will need:

  • Scissors.
  • Stationery knife.
  • Figured punch, which can make a variety of colorful figures for finishing the chest.
  • Good glue.
  • Pistol for gluing small parts.
  • Scotch tape (preferably double-sided).
  • Ruler.

The quality of glue will depend on how tightly the decorative elements will hold, the finishing paper and whether the box will be unstuck at the end of the celebration. To make the chest with your own hands neat, without visible seams, you should use double-sided tape and a glue gun that will accurately distribute the adhesive composition to all small parts. If we talk about the necessary materials, then for the manufacture and decoration of this attribute are ideal:

  • The box is the right size or thick A4 cardboard.
  • Fabric for drapery. It can be silk, satin, velvet and others.
  • Ribbons, cords.
  • Lace lace fabric.
  • Beads, stones, crystals, beads, shells, leather, carved figures, photographs.

After all the materials and tools are collected, you should proceed to the next stage of making an attribute for money. Search schemes, drawings and patterns should be on the Internet, but there is another way: buy a few magazines, which describes all the moments of the preparation of the wedding. If you are not sure that you can make everything on your own, you should use the services of craftsmen or attach to work mom, grandmother.

Scheme or pattern

In order to start making the chest, you need to prepare the ground, or rather, to make patterns or patterns. The pattern can be made using a large cardboard box.

  • The back of the chest must be made taller than the front.
  • The length in this situation should be equal to the sum of the height of the front and the width of the box.
  • The top cover can be made with your own hands, more curly, as shown in the diagram.

If you plan to make a box with your own hands not from a standard box, but to use A4 cardboard sheets, then the task is somewhat more complicated. Do not worry, our goal is achievable, but it will take a little more effort to implement it:

  • The bottom ledge should be about seventy millimeters with a slit on top of the entire pattern so that the bottom does not fall out.
  • The necessary slot for the money envelopes should be made right on the pattern, because after the chest is ready to cut a hole it will become a little problematic. Below is the pattern.

Деньги прячут в сундуке, это повелось еще с давних времен. And the wedding treasury, made with your own hands in the form of a chest, will be the first depository of the family budget. It is possible to make this item of wedding decor from thick cardboard according to the proposed pattern.

In order for the wedding treasury, made with own hands, to have a beautiful shape, without wrinkles and distortions, all the fold lines along which the chest should be folded should be pushed through with a sufficiently narrow but not sharp object, such as knitting needles, sushi sticks or, finally , the blunt side of the knife with a rounded end. The triangular marks on the side flaps need to be cut by removing the drop-down parts. This trick will allow you to gently glue the sides to the main panels. Strengthening the drawing paper or cardboard, from which the wedding treasury is made (it’s not so difficult to make such beauty as in the photo, believe me), you can use another layer of paper. It is necessary to make it in the event that on a trunk it is supposed to place a volume and weighty decor.

How this thing looks like can be seen in the photo below. Nice, isn't it?

Wedding box design

Wedding money boxes are very popular lately. Usually they look original, attract the attention of guests. Throughout the ceremony, they lower money in order to serve as the main general family budget.

The design of the money box should be bright, memorable, creative, and correspond to the uniform style of the event.

Wedding casket

The most popular forms of such boxes:

Most often they are made from cardboard, taken as a basis for an already finished box or cut out and glued together according to a pattern. To ensure the safety of the contents on the money box hang a beautiful lock that fits the style of the accessory. In this case, bills and envelopes are lowered through a thin slot made in advance.

The color solution is also worth considering. If the wedding is framed in any specific tones, then they should be repeated on the box. The same goes for style. Universal decor - in white, with the use of silk and traditional wedding symbols - wedding rings, flowers, figures of the bride and groom, hearts, etc.

Particularly creative newlyweds can make a big box from a large box or an ATM with their own hands, a mailbox, a house. This is a matter of taste.

Tips for making cash chest

We decided to make a chest for money with your own hands? There is nothing easier, especially if you have old boxes from under the dishes, small household appliances, shoes, sweets:

  1. Boxes with a separate lid can be simply pasted appropriately by making a narrow opening for the envelopes in the lid.
  2. In a box with a solid lid, the side faces can be cut in the shape of a semicircle or triangle, and the lid is slightly stretched so that it is easier to give a similar bend. In this case, you need to make sure that when it is closed there are no creases, crevices, dents, etc.

Using ready-made templates, you can cut out the basis for a box of almost any shape from thick cardboard, then glue it together, cut a slot for money, and start wrapping and decorating.

Elegant casket for money

Rectangular boxes, even spectacularly designed, look much less elegant than caskets resembling caskets. It is not so difficult to make such a “family bank” for a wedding with your own hands, as it may seem at first. For this you will need:

  • A box with a hinged lid or a sheet of thick cardboard.
  • Paper.
  • Glue, scissors, masking tape.

If there is no finished box, use the template to cut the blank out of cardboard, then glue and proceed to further work:

  1. Pencil draw a semicircular contour on the side faces and cut off the excess.
  2. Cut front face flush with the bottom point of the round part.
  3. Cover the lid with a ruler every centimeter so that it acquires a semicircular shape. In length, it should be such that it slightly overlaps the top of the front face. If the length is not enough, then it can be “built up” with the help of cardboard and glue.
  4. On the sides of the lid, glue the elements cut out of cardboard using a masking tape, semicircular on one side and straight on the other.
  5. Glue all the edges of the chest with masking tape.
  6. Make a hole in the lid for a money about 5–7 mm wide, not more than 15 cm long.

If a self-made chest will be used after the wedding, for example, for storing family photos or memorabilia, then it should be made into a lock. To do this, in the part of the lid that overlaps, also cut a hole, and in the same place on the front face attach a metal or cardboard loop with a slot under the clasp. If the chest is disposable, then the lid can simply be glued, in this case there is no need to draw out the box from the inside.


No matter how beautiful the foundation is, in its original form it is not suitable for a wedding, so the box should be covered in a box. This can be done using various materials:

  • Textiles - silk, velvet, satin, brocade or whatever. For the wedding in the style of boho fit natural fabrics with hand-sewn. Supporters of eco-friendly design can use linen or cotton with a rough texture, even burlap. The basis can be pasted over with a single-colored or textured fabric, and with the help of light or translucent materials to make elegant draperies. From the inside, it is also worth making upholstery using contrasting material.
  • Leather white or pastel shades.

Volume upholstery

Looks great for the money chest, upholstered with the effect of volume. You can do it yourself as follows:

  1. To fit the edges of the box cut pieces of sintepon (1-2 layers) and glue them to the base.
  2. According to the same dimensions, cut out the details for a covering from a suitable dense fabric, leaving 2-3 cm allowances.
  3. Place the fabric on top of a sintepon, securing with tailors pins.
  4. Using smooth buttons to attach the fabric to the base, placing them "diamond." The edge of each button on the reverse side bend.
  5. Paste or sheathe the inside of the box.

Instead of buttons, you can use beads, in this case, you just need to sew them to the base through all layers of fabric, placing them crosswise, as for quilted ornament.

After the base is ready, you can do absolutely any decor with your own hands with the help of:

  • Lace, satin ribbons, decorative cord.
  • Beads, rhinestones, sequins and other small accessories.
  • Ready beads of different sizes (for pearls, glass, etc.).
  • Artificial flowers, including textile.
  • Bows.
  • Decoupage.

Options for decorating the chest for money

The simpler the base, the more spectacular the decor should be. For example, if the chest is sheathed with a single-color fabric or colored cardboard, then it should be decorated on the edges with spectacular lace, ribbons, to make voluminous floral appliques.

All the decorative elements decorating wedding trunks made with your own hands are best planted on colorless silicone or superglue, some parts can be sewn or fastened with a stapler, with buttons.

When decorating a money box for a wedding with your own hands, remember that the decoration should be as appropriate as possible for the overall style of the event, the bride and groom outfits, and the last bouquet.

Beautifully laid out rhinestones hearts of different sizes, as well as sparkles. The latter can be used for drawing openwork patterns:

  1. Using a transparent glue, draw a suitable ornament.
  2. Liberally sprinkle with glitter glue.
  3. Wait for drying, shake off excess sequins.

The applications from the beads look original: with the help of pearls you can lay out one large or several smaller hearts, the edges of the slot for money, a thematic inscription.

The fabric covering can be supplemented with lace ruffles or assemblies from the same textile, hang the threads of the finished beads, and fasten a small floral arrangement from one edge.

Vintage Vintage Wedding Chest

If the base was painted white, then decoupage technique can be used for the decor:

  • Print pictures of the wedding theme, carefully cut them along the contour.
  • Spread glue with PVA glue on the chest where the pictures should be located, attach the image there and gently smooth it with a brush.

Thus you can paste over the entire box or its individual sections. In the latter case, additional decor will be appropriate. For example, you can make a spectacular decoupage in vintage style:

  1. Print a joint photo of the future spouses or two separate with each of them. The photo is best pre-styled antique.
  2. Cut a photo in the shape of an oval.
  3. Glue on the front edge or side.
  4. Around the photo to make a frame of white pearls or transparent crystals.
  5. From below or from above to fix an accurate bow.
  6. On empty sections of the box, you can stick clippings from old newspapers, notes or books with romantic poems, quotes.
  7. As an additional decor, you can use lace, satin ribbons of pastel shades, ready-made beads, feathers.
  8. Using glitters (contour colors) of silver or gold color, depending on the style, make a thematic inscription: the names or initials of the newlyweds, the wedding date or something symbolic.

By the way, the fastener at the chest for a wedding can be made magnetic, and outside this place can be designated with a beautiful bow, brooch, flower, etc.

Making cut for money

Even the most beautiful self-made wedding trunk box will look unfinished if you do not draw out the money slot. Make it very simple: just lay out the beads on the contour, rhinestones, beads, putting them on the glue. You can wrap the edges with satin ribbon or lace. If the outlines look not aesthetically pleasing, you can make a piping of a decorative cord or sequins, small flowers.

The self-made wedding money chest is a spectacular and unusual holiday accessory that will attract the attention of all guests and will become a treasure box for the family budget. And after the holiday, he will take a worthy place on the shelf, keeping in himself valuable memories of the happiest day in the life of the spouses.

Important details

Why is the wedding treasury established at the newlyweds? So that the guests could give the hero of the occasion a lot of money. So, in any such design, the most important thing is reliability, usability and, undoubtedly, beauty. Reliability is not in the fact that money is not stolen, although it is also important, but in that the product does not fall apart during the holiday. So it must be strong. If the treasury is made of drawing paper, it must be placed on a firm bottom, as much as possible all walls are strengthened. To do this, drawing paper can be decorated using wallpaper. Yes, oddly enough, but it is this available material that is most often used, since it can be of amazing colors. In addition, many types of wallpaper, vinyl, for example, will serve to sufficiently strengthen the basis of whatman paper. So first, on the sheet of paper paper on the markup, the wallpaper is glued, and only after the glue dries well, it will be possible to cut the pattern. Valves for gluing with the wallpaper is not worth it.

The hole for the money can be made standard size - a width of 10-15 mm and a length of 180-200 mm. It is located either on the lid of the treasury, or at the top of the walls - where you like it.

Wedding Decor

From what and in the form of whatever the wedding treasury was made (with your own hands, of course), it should be beautiful wedding. If the celebration is held in a certain style, then the treasury must follow the general trend in order to become an integral part of the holiday. If there is any color feature, then it must be reflected in the piggy bank. The rest of the decor of the wedding treasury can be anything - organza and chiffon, lace and silk, beads, rhinestones, flowers, birds, butterflies, pebbles, shells, glass marbles. You can use funny pictures, for example, in the style of the world famous chewing gum "Love is." Or photos of newlyweds. Everything that will create the atmosphere of love and celebration harmoniously complements the decor of the wedding treasury. It is convenient to mount all the elements with a hot gun, but if it is not there, then you can use a transparent all-purpose adhesive - “Moment” or “Titan”.

The seams, especially in the chest-type constructions, can be decorated with lace braid - it will hide the flaws in the work and unobtrusively complement the decor. The same option is the best for decorating the gap for money. But do not forget that if the design is not too strong, then you do not need to pile on it a lot of jewelry, otherwise it will simply collapse under their weight. Pastel shades of the top cover and several decorative elements together with lace braid are enough decor for the wedding treasury, made with the hands of love, happiness, wealth and well-being.
