I painted my boxes. I got 2 round hat box looking things from Hobby Lobby. I painted them purple and jazzed it up with some ribbon around the bottom of both boxes and a bow on top. I also added a write rose for a little extra something. Google card boxes and it amazing the ideas you’ll come up with!

You could use pretty wrapping paper and some modge podge to make sure it doesn’t tear. I used 2 wicker suit cases stacked on top of each other and glued them together 🙂

A card box can be something as simple as wrapping it in pretty paper and making a slit in the top for cards, or it can be created to match your wedding colors,

I don’t know if you have pinterest, but I LOVE this box

I just took card board boxes, they were actually boxes that I had kept from online orders, and wrapped them in a wrapping paper.

I think one question is to identify what design you’re aiming to achieve. You wonder if fabric will make it look sturdy, but looking sturdy is different than structurally capable of supporting weight.

If you want just one box with a hole in the top, then you’re probably safe using fabric, paper, or possibly paint. Paint may weaken the box as it absorbs while wet, so be careful there if your box merely has an appearance of being sturdy. Spray paint may work better in that case.

Most decor you might consider for many card box designs like ribbon, flowers, or other elements shouldn’t be too heavy for most box types. If you opt for fabric, you might want to consider starching it like crazy once you’ve attached it to give the fabric some level of stiffness that can help make the box look sturdy.

If you planned to stack boxes, then you should consider the weight of other boxes and decorations on top.
