DIY card box ideas please
I am not a fan of the traditional card box ideas. I dont care for the cages either. Does anyone have any good DIY ideas that they are willing to share. Pics too if you have them. Thanks

I am DIY a three tiered card box like the ones Hayley posted above. I got the boxes after christmas and the red and silver wrapping paper too. I am going to keep it low key without ribbon or flowers.

I've got an old shipping box from work (from office supplies we got at Staples, actually) and I'm just wrapping it up in damask wrapping paper and putting a sign tha says "card box" in front of it. I'm gonna be ripping that sucker to shreds the next day so the less elaborate, the better. lol

You might check with a local decorator/rental company...unless you really want to do all that work yourself! We offer a card box similar to this as a rental, you may find a local company that does as well.

I had a card vase! It looked great. It was open, but deep enough that no one could really reach all of the way into it. I have pics posted here:

I love the photo frame box. I saw that on another post and decided that was going to be my card holder box. Plus its another place I can display some of our engagement photos.

I found an old wooden bread box at goodwill for $2.00...I am going to do some painting and woodburning on it and see what happens. Ill post pics when I get to it. There are so many boxes there that you can use for that and you could wrap them in fabric or paper and decorate?

My grandpa is making me a large wooden bird house (he has a bunch that he has made for his land). The top will flip open for cards to be placed inside. We are having a fall rustic oak tree theme.
