    I got mine at Michaels. It's from the "Brides" line they carry (we got the invites, name cards & gift box there). I beleive it was only $20 and they always have coupons for 20% off so it was a bargin.

    You can DYI, but I got mine at Hobby Lobby. The Bridal section is on sale this week 50% off. You can get it for $25.  The boxes at my HL disappear so fast when on sale, I ended up getting mine at reg price with a 40% coupon from their website, it ended up being $30

    I did a DIY card box PIB

    Honestly, I'm not a fan of the premade ones at craft stores and such. I think they're ugly and overpriced. I loved a lot of the DIY ones I saw in other knottie's bios so I took inspiration from there. Mine just looks like a giant present with a slit in the front for cards. It actually came out bigger than I intended but I don't mind because mine probably cost less than $8 to make.

    I DIY'd mine: It took 3 different sized hat boxes, some wedding gift wrap, and then some ribbon and flower for accents.

    Good Luck, hope you find what you need!

    DIY is the best way to go I think, these things can get super expensive, and in the end they are just a box. One thing to be careful of though is that it is easy to get the cards in, but difficult to get them out without it being really obvious. I know it sucks to say it or even think it, but people like to steal gifts from weddings, especially cards which most likely contain money or some form of money.

    Thanks for all your ideas!! I think I am going to try the DIY route...I am doing my programs, guest book, OOT pamphlets, and well wishes book as well - might as well use some of the materials I got for those. Where is a good place to get boxes or hat boxes?? Michaels or Hobby Lobby?? Thinking of wrapping it in pretty fabric - maybe...might be hard to adhere things to though.

    I worked at Pottery Barn Kids last year...

    I bought this as our card box:

    We painted it navy blue (our wedding color) and ordered 2 white monograms from Etsy to place on each side.  It looked GREAT, and it's now sitting in our house :)

    Beau-Coupe.com is where I got mine....it's not a birdcage and not a box wrapped in paper. I think it's just the right size and really pretty!
