DIY vs. Buy

what did you all do with your card box (money box) whatever its called?  hahaha  I haven't seen one I like and I'm just wondering whar did you all do for it?  What do they look like?  Post if you have a pic I need some ideas b/c my creativity is sleeping this week...  thanks

I have no idea what I am doing either. If anyone is doing something wine related (beatie once mentioned on old wine box) than I'd be interested in buying it from you! I'm more of a shopper than a DIYer

I'm probably going to have the oddest card "box" out of anyone I've seen. Instead of a box on a gift table I'm going to have a chair next to the table. The chair belonged to my grandmother and it was one of the few things I was able to get after she passed away. Right now it's brown with a hollowed out seat - she used to keep her pantyhose in the compartment. It's absolutely hideous but it has a place of honor in our living room. So, the plan is to paint it white and cover the seat lid with a pretty green fabric to work with the green and white theme. Then, I'll hang a sign in it advertising it as the place to put cards so people know there's a large compartment under the seat lid. After the wedding when we move into a new house, we plan to put it into a nursery for when we start having little ones. I'll post pics once I get this DIY project done, which might be sometime this weekend.

I made mine.....is was very cheap to make too!  Found some boxes from Michaels on sale and glued them together cutting a hole in each box for cards to drop to the bottom, and also a slit in the top.

I bought frames at Michael's on sale for $5 each, plus I had a coupon to get a few more bucks off. I have yet to put it together yet, butmaybe this weekend. i probably could have gotten an even better deal if I waited for Arron brother's sale, but I just wanted to get it done and off the "TO DO LIST".

FI and I just got back from the Container Store - I was initially hunting for a square box to cover with paper, but then we saw this box.  It's a little high, but FI says he can cut it to be shorter.  Then I think we'll cut a slit and tie a ribbon around it or something.   Here it is (our wedding is bright blue and pink):
