Wedding Card Box

Now that we are heading into wedding season, I am sure there are a ton of brides working out the details to their big day. I know when my sister was at the bitter end, she was scrambling to work out a few. One of those was a card box. The card boxes that were available to purchase were expensive and didn’t really jive with the feel of her wedding.

We ended up making our own card box that felt more like her. We found a mailbox for $9.99 at Walmart.

We used masking tape (we were out of painters tape) to make the chevron pattern that was on the invitations, menu, etc. We painted it using craft paint.

We slowly peeled back the tape and we were left with a lovely chevron design. Then we added some sparkly stickers we found in their colors. Lastly, my sister outfitted the box with a cardboard insert (covered in pretty paper) to make sliding in cards easy and taking out cards difficult.

I love how it mimics their invitations and menu.

A quickie, cheap project that solved a problem and was in keeping with their wedding style. You can read more about the wedding here, and the chocolate covered pretzel favors here.

    Super cute idea – easily translates for a kid birthday party idea:).

      Definitely lots of ways to use it. I think it would be adorable for Valentines, but that might be a bit over the top. Maybe?

      LOL! More like out of time and money, but it worked out nice. My sister had to fly in from out of state so we were DIY’ing a lot into the night at the last minute.
