Card box?

So I am trying to find a creative way, other than purchasing the same old card box from somewhere for our gift table at our wedding....any creative ideas that anyone has seen, used or is using. I am really into the whole DIY for personalization, trying to work on a budget...and just because I love doing stuff myself!

    I've seen a vintage bird cage at a wedding used as a card box. It was quite pretty. A DIY project could be to make your own card box in the shape of a wedding cake and decorate it to match your wedding colors and theme.Good for you for going the DIY route. Good luck!

    My MOH made a card box for her wedding... it was awesome. you take a lazy susan and buy 4 8 x 10 picture frames, some L brackets, and a piece of cardboard and fabric. you make a box with the picture frames and put the card board at the top cover with fabric and cut a slot. then mount it on the lazy susan.... make sure you put super fun pic of you and your fh in the frames. it turned out super super cute and I will be making on for my wedding also!

    I'll be making something out of cardboard boxes and decorative materials. I haven't got it all worked out yet, but in my head it looks awesome.

    we used what I thought was a really cool, unique idea. a really large cylinder vase with a ribbon and our monogram at the top. pics in my for sale bio, as we're selling the vase. HTH!

    This is what we're using.  I'm buying one of the scratch and dent ones for 37.50.  They come in white or you can paint them to match.  The company is located here in SE MI.
