These were both made for our wedding. Found it to be much cheaper to make these than buy them. Prices for wedding items/decorations are crazy. Both are the same idea, being simple mdf boxes pocket screwed and glued together. The corner pieces were poplar that I routed to add a little extra shape to them. I used a styrofoam type crown moulding for the side detail that I attached with “no more nails.” I don’t have a picture but the card box had a double bottom attached with rare earth magnets. I had many people asking how to open it. We hired a wedding decorator, although my wife planned/decorated much of the wedding herself, with some help from me. In the end, we sold these to the decorator, seeing we would have any use for them anymore.
