DIY Card Box

DIY Card Box

If you are looking for a gift idea, that’s both unique and useful – try this DIY card box.

I have great intentions of sending a card on special (and not so special) occasions, but about 90% of the time, I never do it. (Please tell me I’m not the only one.)

Years ago, I was given a box full of cards for everything imaginable and I loved it! I have long since gone through them, so decided to put together one of my own as a gift for a friend. Now I’m wishing I made one for myself!

It’s super easy to make! I got this cute box at Target for $5 and filled it with cards from the Dollar Tree. Their cards were all really cute and an amazing price – 2/$1. I got thank you notes, birthday, wedding, baby, get well, anniversary and sympathy cards and some blank notes – basically a card for every occasion for my friend to have on hand.

I used scrapbook paper for dividers and my sister suggested adding some tabs, but I didn’t have those on hand, sooo….that would be helpful, but #lazy!

There’s a short video below so you can see what’s inside!

If you are less DIY, more “let’s buy” here’s a few boxes already put together for you:

Are you someone who would love your own card box?

  1. This is a great idea! Andy’s Aunt Linda always gives me all occasion cards (that she has made herself). It’s so nice to be able to grab one from your house if you forget to go tongue store.

  2. Great idea, Katie! How lucky is your friend to receive such a nice gift. I do like Allison’s idea of using tabs to separate the different occasion cards. Years ago Hallmark actually sold boxes for organizing greeting cards. I have used mine for years, and it is so useful. Of course, I often have wonderful intentions of sending a card – and then never get around to doing it! Happy Easter! Love, Aunt Angie

    1. I need to actually make one myself! I would probably be so much better at sending them!!
