After seven hours (a whole two spent at Hobby Lobby) my card box is complete! I am definitely not a crafty person, but I am very happy with the way it turned out. I am so proud of it.
What do all of you think?
Also, let’s see yours (or even just pictures of your inspirations)! It is amazing to see how creative all of you are!

I think it’s great! Love the colors, they were my wedding colors as well. 🙂 Most of the time I don’t like the fancy crafty/handmade card boxes like this, but this one is very cute!
This was mine..it’s an antique egg crate!

Thank you. There will honestly not be a lot of decorations at the reception and I thought this could add a little decor to the venue, as well as serve a handy purpose.

It’s very pretty! Did you use fabric or paper on that “Mr & Mrs” middle layer? It’s adorable!

@futuremrsmck: GREAT idea! I completely agree. It will be another showcase at the wedding. In other words, a big bang for the buck! 🙂

Here’s ours. My mom ordered it from Etsy 🙂

@LittlemissBM: I love yours! I love the rustic look it has!
@Jen041815: I used scrapbooking paper! It was a little difficult to line up where the paper started and stopped, but I think I hid it pretty well. That was also the purpose of the little bit of tulle between the second and third box – to cover any crooked edges.
@TaurianDoll: I like that a lot! The burlap and birdcage go together well. I thought about doing an opened box like yours, but I was a little weary of having the cards show. I’m a little odd. 🙂

@futuremrsmck: That is so pretty! I tried to make a similar one this weekend but it didn’t work out. We got all the holes cut out and realized that it just didn’t work well at all. We either need to buy some bigger boxes or try something else.

@futuremrsmck: you did a great job! Can I ask how much you spent on supplies? I’ve been considering making ours.

@futuremrsmck: Wow super nice!!! I’m brand new to looking at card boxes, but I’m assuming just the bottom and middle boxes are cut open to “attach”?
@LittlemissBM: Love yours as well! Never seen anyone use that before!

@futuremrsmck: Very Nice! Excellent work.
Below are pics of mine. It is made from an old cardboard box and paper (plus paint). It’s a pop-up box–when you open the card flap, the “thank you” sign pops up. The cost was basically zero since I used basic copy paper to make the decor on it.
The last pic was my inspiration photo.

@MsSparklyBee: I probably spent just over $50. This was because I didn’t have anything to begin with (paint, ribbon, etc). So I’m sure the cost can certainly be lowered if you have a few things already.
Also, they have a really simple card box at hobby lobby for like $30. So it didn’t really bother me that mine was around $50 because it is personalized and much cuter than the one they had.
@TattooedChick23: Yes, there is a hole in the bottom of the middle box, as well as the top of the bottom box. It was a little difficult to cut through the thick cardboard, but we ended up using knives used to cut carpet. It was also a little difficult to get the two pieces glued together. But it worked great!
