From the peak in the center of the roof, I think flowers hanging on ribbons would be really pretty!

What is your theme, colors, etc?  

I’m a simple person and kind of like it how it is…

If I did anything , it would be strictly on the peak. Anything else you use along the opening or the sides will get in the way when its opened and closed.

I’d probably go to the craft store and buy those flat wooden letters, and paint them in my wedding colors, and glue them randomly along the top panels (staggered) just saying ‘cards’…

I guarantee people will open it anyway. 😛 I guess I should have clarified…use that tacky stuff you use to hang posters so it just peels off afterwards. I wouldn’t do anything permanent either, but even hot glue comes off pretty easily with an ice cube!

another trick to removing hot glue easily- rub hand sanitizer on it.  trust me- it works!  i’m a teacher and i do it all the time!  let it sit a few minutes, then lightly pick it off.  works like a charm and won’t damage your stuff.

In terms of glue, I would use something called glue dots.  The ones I used were Zots.  I used them for all sorts of DIY projects, including decorating my card box.

I would check to make sure cards of various sizes can fit in through the side openings before you finalize a decorating plan 🙂

I would wrap a ribbon around the bottom (in your colors, with lace on top… or just a 2″ wide lace… you could even use pearls to decorate the ribbon) and put a “cards” sign on it.  The cards sign could be decorated with those things as well.

Something like these (some are done well, some aren’t done as well… But you get the idea)

OOO how I wish your wedding was before mine, because I’d beg to purchase this from you :). 

I’d do a banner/bunting type of sign that says “CARDS” and leave it at that.

I second what kate02121 said, I’d do bunting flags in my wedding colors that said “CARDS”
