I getting ready to make a card box (LOVE craft projects) and debating between a three-tier or a one-tier card box.
The colors will be the same no matter which size, the pics below are just examples.
One-tier is obviously cheaper, less work, and easier to transport.
Three-tier can potentially hold more (but that is pretty minor), and is quite grand/impressive looking. Adds a little something to what can be a relatively bare gift table.
I’m going to add a tag on the ribbon that says “Cards” no matter what, I think people would be confused by the three-tier with a cutout in it in my circle if it didn’t say cards.

I think that the one tier is prettier!!

I don’t think capacity is an issue, really. Cards are fairly small, even when there’s lots.
Your point about jazzing up the table, when it might be pretty bare, is a valid one.
I don’t think you need to stress about either… which one do you want to make more??

@pigzfly: Yeah, definitely either one is a good option!
I’m thinking the low one is nice because you don’t need to do a different color on the box in the middle, and it’s easier, not a pain to transport (have to haul everything 2 hours and have a LOT – doing all my own centerpieces and stuff).
Do love the look of the tall one though. Probably will be a game-time decision at Hobby Lobby, haha.

I prefer the one tier, cards are pretty slim and light weight and that box will still be able to hold plenty of envelopes

I like the three tier, but I’m biased. Here’s mine:
Here’s what it looked like at my wedding:

I made a 3 tier one and loved it, but I really like the one tier box you posted!

@Peony007: Absolutely gorgeous!!
I ended up making a one tier because I had difficulty finding boxes and am impatient 🙂 – love them all though.

I say three tier or larger. Mine is a four tier!

I did a 3 tier. I think they look more impressive, even tho the 1 tier can be nice. My whole thing was hollow so cards fell all the way into the bottom. I think a lot of DIYers forget about that part!
