Even with everyone invited that you trust, I’d still remove a slat and lock the bottom,just to prevent “looky loos” on the other cards, and the risk of any card being dropped, misplaced.

As a general idea, I like it! warm, intimate, cozy

ARe you going to have a slot in the top or are you going to have people pull up the opening? I think you shold cut a slot in the top to make it more like a card box. I would also paint it to make it look a little more finished….unless this in some way goes with the other decor of your wedding! What is the “theme”, “feel” or location of your wedding? I think it could be really cute if it was done the right way!

I would probably remove a slate for a slot opening and secure the bottom, just to prevent any sticky fingers. Or, if there is a lot, things will start sliding out of the box when a guest try to put one in. 

I also like clarebee option about painting it to look more finished with the ribbon decor.

love the idea, but also second the suggestion for locking it. 

If you want to know if you can remove a slot from the roll-top part, take it to a reliable carpenter.  call first and talk to them before going, though, since you don’t want to waste time and gas… or at least I don’t 😉

In fact, a carpenter would probably be able to tell you the BEST way to fix it up the way you want without destroying it. 🙂  I should know; my brother is one!!! and I’ve turned to him for A LOT of dumb questions and help for just about everything to do with carpentry work, lol.
