there were two things i was certain of when i got engaged
the guy i was going to marry
and that there would be mason jars at my wedding
lots of them
everything else seemed to fall into place
around all the mason jars of course
...and then came baby...

the birdcage: semi-DIY wedding card holder

{via afterglow photos llc}

it was a couple weeks before our wedding day when we realized we didn't have anything to hold gift cards. we ended up going with the first idea that came to mind, which was the ever classic birdcage. since we didn't have any lying around, we set out on a hunt. we were lucky enough to find one at the first antique shop we visited. it was dark brown & sitting on top of an old dresser. we passed by it a few times before realizing it's potential.

we took the little birdcage home & gave it some love. first, we wiped off all the dust. then we spray painted it white. finally, we used sandpaper to rub some of the paint off to give it a vintage look.

any other creative ideas for a wedding gift card holder?
