Our popular phantom acrylic wishing wells are clearly something that can be used over and over again whether you are a wedding/party planner, prop rental business, small business owner or just someone who likes to do a lot of entertaining. 

Follow along and we'll show you four inspiring reasons to add one of these to your shopping cart!

The simple phantom wishing well box is the perfect balance of form and function. With a little bit of creativity and supplies like water based paint markers, cling vinyl, ribbon and papers, you can make it your own.

Every wedding needs a wishing well for guests to place their gift cards and well wishes. Doris Wai from Love Lettering added the beautiful hand lettered "Best Day Ever" message and floral illustrations using waterbased Sharpie paint pens. The floral details matched the floral design on the wedding invitations and was the perfect way to make this simple acrylic box co-ordinate with the wedding decor. 
After the wedding, remove the graphics using a soft cloth and water and store the wishing well in a safe place until your next event. Like maybe a baby shower?

Baby and bridal showers are two more occasions that a wishing well comes in handy. This time Doris Wai added instructions for a party game using water based paint markers. We also added a black and white striped ribbon to the lid of the box to match our black and white party decor. 


After the shower, wash off the lettering using a soft cloth and water, remove the ribbon and store until your next celebration.

If you thought that a wishing well could only be used to collect gift cards then think again.

For this first birthday celebration the phantom wishing well was used as a cake riser for a custom designed rocket ship cake. Doris Wai added the lettering and "blast off" flames using water based paints to give the cake presentation a little extra pow! 

Tip: Use a cake pad that is a little larger than the cake so that it completely covers the slot on the top of the wishing well and protects the acrylic surface from getting scratched.

Are you a small (medium or large) business that takes part in tradeshows or has a brick and mortar store location?  The phantom wishing well is a great way to collect contest ballots and email addresses for mailing lists. You can add your logo to the box using cling vinyl or hand lettering using water based Sharpie paint markers. Make your branding complete by adding a sheet of patterned paper or a photo to the back (inside) of the box and keep it in place using glue dots.

let's party to the moon and back - first birthday party | Creative Bag

Our customers really like to plan amazing parties. And whether you are a professional party planner or someone who just like to host fun birthday parties for your children, we have everything that you need to get the party started. 

Check out this adorable "fly to the moon" themed party that was pulled together by Janet Kwan from Janet Kwan Photography for her nephew's first birthday.

Janet had a little help from some of her creative friends with a number of the party details. I personally had fun creating a few of the diy projects for the party using some of our products. These "rocket fuel" milk bottles were created using swing top bottles, silver corregated paper "wings" and custom printed labels.

You may remember seeing the phantom acrylic wish well in this wedding post or this baby shower post. We think that this is one of the most imaginative uses for this popular acyclic box and proof that it can be used for more than just a wishing well at a wedding. The box was embellished by Doris using water based paint and used as a riser for the amazing custom birthday cake.
