Card Box Ideas?

Recommended Posts

What are you using/did you use for a card box with the DW beach wedding theme? I'm thinking of perhaps a tall lantern that opens to place a candle inside, but just not sure. I don't want to use the traditional boxes or bird cages. Does anyone have ideas of something they made or purchased (and where)?

I saw that one, too, Megan. I just thought it was a bit pricey and was hoping to find something a little less expensive. Thanks!!!!

I really like those and once I looked at the price and looked back at the product, I thought I bet I can make that for like $30! Especially since I didn't really see the colors that I am intersted in. I know that Ross sells boxes similar to that and put a huge pretty ribbon around all three and even glue the bottom of the top two to keep it in line and put a whole in the center. Heck you could even tie it with a personalized ribbon!! lol I am always looking for DIY ideas and thanks for the inspiration! xoxo

Side note: attended a wedding last Saturday and they are missing several cards from the box sad.gif Might be a good idea to have a sober reliable person keep an eye on the card boxes since that is a horrible thing to happen, especially since it is your special day that you spend so much time on planning and would hate to realize one of your guests is a clepto! sad.gif xoxo best wishes

These are so cute! I'm thinking of making something similiar using wrapping paper and ribbons.

I know you said you don't want typical boxes, but here's what I did: I bought a set of 3 boxes nested inside each other. I stacked them so the largest was on the bottom, going up to the smallest box on the top. I cut a slit in the top of the first box, then cut out most of the bottom of the first box, the top and bottom of the second box, and the top of the bottom box. This allows the cards to fall all the way through and have room. I bought "paradise" calendars for $1 each at Michaels, tore the pictures out, and tore each picture into scraps. I used Mod Podge to decoupage the scraps of the calendar pictures onto each box. The top tier had scraps from the sky, the middle tier had scraps from the sand, and the bottom tier had scraps from the water parts of the pictures. So, while it is somehwat of a typical tiered box, it is totally unique the way I decorated it and I love it :) Not sure if I can post photos, but I'll try!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
