His & Hers Slimline Ring Cases

The clock is ticking, but I wanted to squeeze in one more DIY post before the big day. There will be quite a few after we get back since I've been too busy to post about a lot of projects recently, I'm a blog slacker, I know.
Anyways, I find myself with pangs of jealousy each time someone posts a picture of a super cute ring holder. I scowered ebay for quite some time looking for something to hold my rings, but nothing ever really jumped out at me (and was in my price range). So, I was forced to resort to alternate methods.

Ring boxes tend to be so bulky anyways, I wanted something slim and modern, that could easily slide into the pant or jacket pocket of our best man, since we don't have a ring barer. Then one day I came across this post on the dieline showcasing the rings and packaging of AMT studios.
I contacted the company but they were only making black cases at the time, it would say 'diamond ring' on it and there would be a sizing chart on the back, or they could do something else but it would cost a pretty penny. (We are out of pretty pennies at this point).

The wheels started turning and I ended up with these:
His and hers slimline ring boxes, with our wedding date inscribed on the back. I measured the diameter and height of our rings to ensure a snug fit and cut the pieces out using a laser cutter. I then used spray mount to hold the pieces together, each 'box' has a top and a bottom held closed with white elastics. Its a pretty simple concept, but we are pretty simple people-
Our wedding bands are already up in Maine, but I threw my e-ring in there so you can get the general idea :)

Have you found wedding inspiration in an unusual place?

Those are amazing! I didn't do anything special for ring holders since my mom made our ring pillow out of the lace on her wedding dress and used ribbons that were our colors on it. That is a really great idea and you'll be able to use those forever!
