You could buy something like this art deco clock, place it on top of a wood box stained to a matching color. Cut the slot for the cards in the top of the box just in front of the clock.

or do something similar with this  mirror but attach it to the front of the box

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!
