Many guests will bring sentimental, humorous or touching cards to mark the occasion of your wedding.  The most popular way for a bride to keep track of those special cards is with a card box.  Typically, this will be placed in an area near the gifts so guests can slip their cards in quickly and easily.  DIY card boxes are a great idea; they're simple to make and much cheaper than pre-made card boxes.  Below, you will find some great ideas for your own DIY card box.


Basic DIY Card Boxes 


The basic way to create the foundation for your card box is to use a sturdy cardboard box.  Simply tape it closed and cut a slit in the top for cards to slip through. You can then wrap it in attractive paper to match your wedding theme or colors.  For instance, for a traditional wedding - use white paper to wrap the box and place tiny silver jewels in a decorative fashion over the paper.  For a beach-themed wedding, wrap the box in taupe or sand-colored paper and embellish with sea shells.


Unique DIY Card Boxes 


If you'd rather go with something a little more unique, there are countless options for creating DIY card boxes.  For instance, an ornamental birdcage would make a beautiful card box.  Simply affix flowers and ribbon in the colors of your choice to the cage and create a sign to place near it which reads, ‘cards.'  For a vintage style wedding, try to locate a real vintage mailbox and decorate that.  A tropical themed wedding could be gorgeous with a flower-bedecked basket to hold your cards.  Use your creativity and in no time, you will have some wonderful ideas for DIY card boxes.


Tips for DIY Card Boxes 


Depending upon where your wedding will take place, it may be necessary to have a trusted individual empty the box periodically and place the cards in a safe place - especially since many guests bring money for the bride and groom.  Also, if you wrap the box in paper and place it on the gift table, be sure that it stands out from the other wrapped gifts at the table.  This way, guests will immediately recognize it and will not mistake it for another wedding gift.


DIY card boxes can be as elegant or as simple as you'd like - and all it takes is a bit of inspiration and a pair of creative hands.
