After calling my parents, updating my Facebook, and telling everyone within earshot Jimmy proposed the next thing I did was buy every wedding magazine on the rack.

I loved the process of planning our wedding and all the little ideas and inspiration the magazines gave me. Then it occurred to me, I don’t have to get rid of them. With this project you’ll be able to take your own stack of wedding magazines and give them a new purpose as a lovely little ring box.
