Looks to me like it turned out pretty good, well done!  And yes, DIY is ALWAYS more work than you expect, which is why I’m not even going to try! 🙂

Good job! How big is the box and how many guests are you having? Mine were 3 tiers for 120 & 85 people.

You could just cut the bottom off of that box and glue this box to a slightly larger box so that it is 2 tiers and holds more.

Looks great! Instead of making several small ones, you could buy additional boxes in 2 larger sizes, cut the bottom out of the one you made, and cut a whole out of the top and bottom of the middle sized box, then stack them all (+hot glue of course) sort of like a tiered wedding cake. That way it’ll be one big card box and you’ll still be able to use this one that you worked so hard on! Oh, and nice tip on the popsicle stick to make the flowers lay flat. I love that!

It came out good. What I noticed at my friends’ wedding (2 weeks before mine) was that her store bought card box didn’t really fit the larger cards or more than a few cards…


So, I figured that when I was planning my own wedding and was looking for something different than the traditional card box but wanted it to stand out (and fit the cards correcty!) I also didn’t want to spend a ton of money on a card box that will be used once for a short amount of time…I found this on photo frame card box on Etsy. It came out great! What I like best is that I can use it AFTER my wedding. It now sits on a table as a centerpiece!  It was a big hit and I had many friends where I got it.
