Share this project

Happy simple DIY Tuesday my darlings! Today’s project is totally useful with a silly little twist… how to make these adorable wedding pill boxes! It’s no secret that wedding planning can get hectic and even painful at times. I hate to break it to you but sometimes your wedding planning will even be a pain to those around you. So make light of what might be ahead (and in a way, apologize for it before it even happens), by gifting your favorites these sweet but silly custom wedding pill boxes containing their favorite pain reliever! From your bridesmaids to your Dad, they will all chuckle and at least have the power of relief if needed.

Embellish Your Tins

Embellishing your tins is completely optional. If you’d like to add rhinestones, pearls or etc. apply with Aleene’s Turbo Tacky glue and let dry. It will provide a great seal for any embellishment. Tweezers help with the placement. The 2mm stones worked perfectly for the rim around the tin.

Apply The Label

The 1 1/4″ round address labels from Paper Source fit these tins perfectly. Grab our free download below, print and apply to the top of each tin. Our designs are just ideas for you, if they don’t fit your style or event it’s really easy to design your own using the label Word template from Paper Source, which can be downloaded right from the label page on their website.

PRINTING TIP // if you open and print this document with Adobe Acrobat, make sure to select “actual size” when printing. If not, it won’t fit the labels.
