I found an old shoe box with a separate lid. Next I wrapped it in foil like a present. (I like using the dull side.) Paper dollies adorn the front lip. I found silver sticker lettering and other clear stickers for embellishment and words. By cutting out a suit and dress of your color choice, you can create a wonderful place for your guests to place their cards and you'll be recycling too.
Approximate Time: 1 -2 hours
colored construction paper
any lace, dollies, ribbon, etc. to enhance
Get your shoe box and cover it like a present.
Tape down the edges so there will be no tearing.
Draw out your design for suit and dress.
Assemble them with glue stick.
Add any fun ribbons, lace, stickers, etc. Paper dollies adorn the front edge of the box. They are folded in half and glued down. Your sticker lettering can just be pressed on the paper dollies.
It makes a great storage and keepsake gift as well as a functional card holder. The lid gets propped inside free standing so you can remove and cover.

Here are questions related to Making a Card Box for Your Wedding.
I would like to make a wedding card box for my son's wedding in October. I have all the materials, but am kind of nervous about starting it. I would like to see a video if possible or find a web site to go to. Thanks.
I made one for my step-daughter's wedding. Don't be scared,it's easy. 1. Get three boxes, large, medium, small 2. Wrap them in white wedding paper,just like a present (you can wrap before or after cutting holes-looks neater if you cut slots first so you can tuck paper into slots). 3. Cut a slot in the top and bottom(except the bottom of the bottom box) of each box (lg. hole in bottom box ,med. hole in middle box, smaller hole in the smallest box (because the cards must be able to drop into the slot without stopping. 4.Glue wrapped boxes on top of each other stacking like a wedding cake. 5. Wrap boxes with wide satin ribbon where boxes attach to each other. 6. Cascade silk flowers starting at the top down to the bottom layer of your box cake. It's fun, cheap and easy. Just have fun with it. People only see the bride anyway.
