Handcrafted Greeting Card / Gift Card Money Box

$44.99 (USD)
(+ $15.99 shipping)


Your guests will be impressed by this one of a kind greeting card / money box shaped like a gorgeous cake. It is entirely handcrafted by me, from top to bottom. I constructed the boxes from good quality chipboard and covered with them with beautiful K&Company scrapbook papers in a vintage style. It's a very sturdy piece!

I embellished the boxes with lots of embellishments: intricate die-cuts, fabric flowers, strands of "pearls", beautiful butterflies, flatback pearls and crystals, and ribbon roses. The cards slide into the slit at the top of the "cake" and drop down into the bottom box (the section between the two layers is open so there is plenty of room for cards). I attached a small ornate sign  on the front that reads "Cards".

The bottom box measures 11"x11" and is 6" high. The top box measures 8" x 8" and is 5" high. With the embellishments, the cake measures about 12" high. The slot for inserting cards measures 7" wide. 
The top cover of the bottom box lifts up so you can remove the cards after your wedding. You can also flip the top around so it inserts into the bottom of the box for easy storage, ready to be used for another special occasion such as an anniversary or birthday.

All of the chipboard, cardstock and papers are good quality and acid free, as are the adhesives I used.  

Below is a video that shows the card box in more detail. I'm also including photos further below.

I really enjoy my craft so I pay extra special attention to details.
