The Card Box of All Card Boxes!

So, I almost had a heart attack when Knottie Poetic Justice (see her blog here) showed me this over the weekend:

It's from the Ebay store Modernbrides, which will make this baby for you in your wedding colors.
Now, I almost had a heart attack at the price of this card box, too, which can be up to $125 for a box piled 8 gifts high. For two stacked gifts, you'll pay $70...
Examples of other styles:

Now, as excited as I got about the look of that first box in my color scheme...I have had to decide against getting it because I already have a card cage--and because that Ebay store says it is booked with orders through August.
But if I didn't have a cage, I know I could make that card box with relatively little effort using either nesting boxes or hat boxes, hot glue,a utility knife and embellishments.
If you're interested in making something like it, check out Nashville Wraps or Box and Wraps.

I love your blog. I am a fellow NEO Fallen knottie. My mom made me a three tier box & just materials were almost $50. that's why these boxes are so procey.
