One of the best parts of a bridesmaid box DIY is that you can take it any direction you want. Consider including jewelry, hair accessories, nail polish or other items that your bridesmaids could use on the wedding day.

We’ve created a printable for the bunting to get you started. There are three versions that include Matron of Honor, Maid of Honor and Bridesmaid, so we have you covered!

Just download the free printable, print and cut it out then glue (or sew if you’re up to it) to decorative paper. The rest is up to you! Have fun with this and think of your girls as you put it together.
