Ideas?

So, I got all of this stuff to make a card box.  I called my mom to tell her about it and she got upset and said she planned on making us something for our cards.  That being said, I still want to make the box and use it another way.  I've seen girls who did advice boxes, memory boxes and that type of thing.  For those of you that did something similar, did you get a good reception from the guests?

    Instead of a guestbook, you could do a wishing well type thing. Guests could write you notes, then put the messages in the box.

    We didn't do anything like that, but it sounds cute.

    Well yeah, but now that you mentioned it, my brain has started to meld the two songs together.

    DED.

    Also, guestbookstore.com has really cute examples of cards that have different activites (i.e,. give the couple  your best marriage advice, etc) and you can easily adapt this to your own needs and create a wishing well as PP said.

    Also, after my rather stressful day, the reference to Diick in a Box cheered me up a bit.  So thank you for that as well.

    We did a wishing well kind of thing. We used leftover invitations and had guests write a message. I'm really glad we did it, because we got a lot of thoughtful messages. My brother's made me cry, and a few others, from the kids, were hilarious.
