Which brings us to today’s post – ANOTHER DIY!!

“As I had said two weeks ago when writing about the table numbers.. I had planned to go to Michael’s to buy table numbers and a card box. So off to pick up Rebekah I went {I drag her along with everything 🙂 } We decided to go to Middletown so we would have the choice of Michael’s or AC Moore. {I honestly don’t remember if I had written any of this when talking about the table numbers, so I am sorry if I am repeating myself 🙂 } 

I went into both stores to check out the available card boxes.. The only box from both stores that I liked was $40.. And I don’t know if I have mentioned this before or not, but I am super cheap.. Like super cheap 🙂 I wasn’t in love with the box so I could not justify to myself spending $40 on it.

We happened to be walking through AC Moore and happened upon some decorative bird cages that were on sale.. On a side note, Rebekah has an obsession with birdcages.. But I was able to get a large bird cage for $12!! Much better than $40 🙂

So at a later date, Rebekah and I sat down to turn the bird cage into  a card box. We were not really too sure where we were going so we Pinterested {of course} some ideas. We had a bunch of leftover supplies from my bridal shower and such.. Twine, ribbon, flowers, burlap.. We tried a few different things before deciding on using some leftover burlap {from the table runners}, some flowers {from the centerpieces at my shower}, and paper {that will be used for my place cards} to complete the look. We did have to use a few different sheets of paper because I made Rebekah write the work “Cards” a million times before I decided I liked it 🙂


Since everything else was repurposed from another date.. It really only cost $12!! AMAZING 🙂


Okay people.. We are in the final stretch! Two weeks from Friday! Ah! Scary! I have so many meetings I have to schedule with a million different people! Also, Arthur and I will be picking up our marriage license today!! :)”
