Card Box

Weddings have become international now because of the internet and so many new traditions are made when brides from all over the world come together with their massive amount of creative ideas. I particularly like the because it embraces untraditional brides from all cultures.
Anyway the new thing is to make boxes for the cards that the guests always bring along with the presents, and I like the idea. Obviously it got me thinking about what a medieval wedding would use as a card box when a fellow medieval bride showed her wonderful cardbox, this cool wooden chest that her fianceé brought home:
It made me think that I actually have a little wooden shrine of my own that I got at a flea market with red velvet fabric inside. Right now it's holding my crystals - yay sooo shiny :-P but they can get another home while it acts cardbox at the wedding.
Finally - I don't remember where I got this photo, but I think it's kind of cute, and probably more in line with a medieval peasents' wedding cardbox would look like (not that they had cardboxes in medieval times!):
If you like the idea as well, just go searching for wooden trunks and chests :-)
