Where to Store Gift Cards for a Wedding

Last fall was a blur for me: taking our oldest son to college and preparing for our daughter’s wedding. Lots of emotions and crafting and planning and doing. After the wedding I was just plain tired! Now that I’ve recouped (okay, maybe it didn’t take me almost a year) I wanted to share some of the crafty details of the wedding. This was before my daughter, niece and I joined Pinterest and it was probably a good thing! We would have been up to our eyeballs in projects and not enough time ! As it was, we stretched the budget and the day was amazing.

We wanted to figure out where to store gift cards for a wedding reception in one location. Rachel originally wanted to use a mail box (and I got one free off Freecycle), but she changed her mind. After searching the internet I found many ways to display money and cards, including: a picture frame idea, a wedding cake box, a bird cage holder and a glass wedding card box.

We ended up using a treasure box that Rachel bought for a couple of dollars at a yard sale. My niece printed up the graphics, circle punched and attached with ribbon. I think it’s an adorable idea.

  1. A really cute and unique idea. What a statement to the details you put into the wedding! This could work for so many different reasons. So very pretty! Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration with Sundayโ€™s Best โ€“ you helped make the party a success!

  2. Such a cute idea! Would be great at an older girls birthday too! Thanks so much for partying with us at Link It Up Thursday.:)

  3. Marty,
    This is a wonderful idea. It would work for those special birthdays too where people might get monetary gifts (18th & 21st). Thank you so much for sharing at Creative Thursday this week. I can’t wait to see what you link up next week. Have a wonderful weekend ๐Ÿ™‚
    Michelle

  4. Really cute idea. Those banners seem to be popping up everywhere nowadays. I’ve seen a ton of mantles using them…

  5. Marty this post comes at just the right time! We are hoping for a spring wedding in our family… and the sweet couple would like a “vintage” wedding!
