Mine looks like a stack of large antique books with moss that looks like it’s growing up over it to fit in with our forest theme… they are hollow inside and I cut holes in them and glued them together to make 1 large box. The top book opens up and theres just a small slot to put cards down inside.

I made mine using a ballot box from work.  I spray painted it ivory (which is the only thing I bought specifically to DIY the card box.)  then wrapped it in a large strip from a plastic ivory tablecloth from the dollar store and tied a bow with ivory tulle.  The tablecloth and tulle were leftover from other DIY projects.  

ETA:  At first I had wrapped the the entire box with the tablecloth but Darling Husband said it looked too “fru-fru” and people wouldn’t know it was the card box.  My teenage daughter liked it.  I wish I had left it that way.  But, this way worked.

My Fiance is building a birdhouse card box, similar to this:  ( I love that we will be able to use it in the future)

I made this one from my wedding gown and some old boxes.

Ours was a barn, since we were married at a barn. It cost about $30. I purchased the wooden barn unfinished and then painted it myself. I think either of your ideas would make a great cardbox!

Mine was… different. My DOC knew I was doing a theatre feel and took it to a whole new level! lol I didn’t see it until the Day Of.

I made ours from 4 picture frames, some hinges, particle board, a lazy susan and some fabric/batting.  4 sides, 4 photos.  I’ve since taken it apart and hung the frames with new photos.

Here’s mine. It’s just satin and ribbon wrapped stacking boxes with artificial callas. I still love it.
