Wedding Details – The Cardbox

I wanted something a little different for our cardbox.

I stalked eBay, Craigslist and online stores for the perfect birdcage. It had to be large and difficult to simply pick up or open (I’ve heard too many horror stories about staff, guests or crashers stealing wedding cards, or the entire cardbox!).

We finally scored a sweet birdcage, originally from Pier 1, for under $20. I went to work removing a few bars, and R used some sort of saw or other machinery to cut through a metal bar (so we could make a slot).

R took the cage out to the yard and went through 3 cans of spraypaint to turn it from a dingy brown to a luscious ivory color.

I finished it off with a layer of Paper-Source scrollwork paper in the bottom.

As a finishing touch, we added the sweet sign “Cards and Kind Wishes” and hung it by ribbons.

It served a function while also looking pretty gorgeous on the gift table.
