What are you guys doing for your card boxes? Are you having them open, or accessible, or are you having them locked or enclosed? How are you DIY-ing your boxes so no one can steal the cards?

    We are making our cardbox out of wood. It's going to be a large art deco style starburst. We will have a lock on the back of it, cards will be able to be deposited into it via a small slot at the top. Once it's finished I'll have to post pictures. Smiley smile

    My Husband and I took someone stealing the card box very seriously. He bought a plain wooden chest from AC Moore, which he painted and foiled. He cut the slot into it to allow for cards to be put in there then he secured hinges on the sides to seal it closed. To be extra safe, he also drilled a hole into the box where he was able to put a chain to lock the box onto the table where it was at our reception. If someone tried to steal the box they would look awfully stupid walking out with the entire table.
