for the past month or so i’ve been all over etsy and pintrest looking for the perfect art deco card box. i have not been able to find one. the closest thing to it, is a vintage black suitcase. when i talked to my sister about using a suitcase she flat out told me that it wouldn’t be “glam” enough. our reception is taking place in a gorgeous 1920’s ballroom. any ideas?

I’ve been thinking about the same thing…
I was going to get some beveled edge mirror (glass or plastic) pieces from a DIY shop and create a box from them (possibly stuck on thick carbdoard) then make the lid with it’s hole using some art deco themed art or patterned paper pasted on the lid.
Until reading your post I never thought to simply put “art deco box” into google images. I found a good amount of inspiration! If you love art deco in the home too, maybe making an investment in an antique piece would be a good idea. It doubles up as a beautiful keepsake.
Please keep us updated on your progress, good luck!

I know hat boxes are kind of obvious, but when they look like this…
I found these here: http://www.stafforddesign.net/show/showroom.htm
Wish I could find someone making these in the UK now.
