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 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

eBay Store - The Wedding Main St: wedding card box, money holder, cake top topper
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!

    • Hi everyone! I have been doing lots of research on various wedding venues all around Mexico, my fiance wants a destination wedding and I am happy to have a wedding wherever so long as the vibe is right and guests are happy!  I have been seriously looking at Cabo Azul and was trying to find potential costs for them, but only found a page about their wedding costs from 2010. Does anyone have any updated information on costs / reviews they would like to share of this venue? Or advice in general, anything helps. Thanks so much, happy wedding planning to all!
    • Hello everyone, I am dreaming of a wedding in Costa Rica and was wondering if I could get any help with venues and wedding planners. I am thinking Tamarindo because a close friend of mine lives there and I've been in town more than a couple of times, she's being helpful but is at a loss when it comes to this subject really so I was wondering if anyone here had recommendations. I am not closed to other town suggestions either, if I happen to find a good place and staff somewhere else. These are the places I have so far, has anyone had any experience with any of them?  Stay In Tamarindo Luxury Villas in Costa Rica Luxury Villas Pinilla Tropical Homes of Costa Rica The Point Luxury Villa Thank you so much for your help!
