Help Needed: Card Box

Hi ladies!  I am looking for ideas for a card box.  As many of you know we are going with a wine inspired theme.  I would love it if I could find a small wine barrel, but I can't seem to find one.  Then I ran across this idea and thought it was cool but FI said that he thinks it's too small.  See pic below:



Have any ideas on things I can use for my card box that goes along with my theme?  What are you ladies using?

    I am working on a DIY photo frame card box. I think it could fit your theme if you picked pictures of you and your man drinking wine, etc. 

    I got my frames at Michaels. They're 40% off right now.

    I found a site that does personalized wine barrels... 

    It might be more than you're looking to spend, but here you go: http://www.winevine-imports.com/American-White-Oak-Barrel-w-Hoops-Personalized--pr-1736.html

    Some wines come in printed, wooden boxes that the shops just throw away. I'd check with some local wine stores to see if they'd give you one (or two!)

    I was going to suggest this. You could probably call RayLen Vineyards and see if they may have some wooden crates. I know that this particular vineyard is about 30 minutes away from Greensboro (in Davie county if you travel on I-40 West) and there's another one near Greensboro but I don't remember it's name.

    That is such a cute idea Amberlyned, but it is a little out of our price range.  Thanks for the suggestion though.  Ladies, I sooooooooo love the idea of using wine crates.  LCA, I was just at Stonefield Cellars yesterday, it is in Davie County (myabe that's the one you're referring to).  The owners are awesome.  We took our Engagement Pictures there.  I may check with them.  Thanks for the suggestions ladies.

    Stonefield Vineyards! That's the one! Childress Vineyards is another one you could possibly check out.
