These go for $80-180 on etsy! After looking high and low and being worried the wood color would be too cool tone for our wedding or not even matching at all I decided to make my own. It cost me $35 that's including everything the stain, shells, palms, starfish and the box. The first pic is inspiration and the second is the one I made. i made my own card box! 1

    I saw this on Pinterest and decided I was going to make mine too because $112-$132 is too much! I bought all my supplies for $25-$30 to recreate this card box 馃檪

    That's awesome! My husband made our cardbox as well. We wanted one that looked like a mini house. I found ones for sale on Etsy, but they were really expensive and my husband works in construction so hr decided to make it himself.

    Good job I love the stain on it. Looks really good. I upcycled my cardbox from another bride who was selling it but I added a little pop to it. Cant wait to use it.
