Bird Cage Wedding Card Holder ETC...

I made this bird cage card holder to sell in my booth.
I found this gem at a yard sale.
And it looked like this...
After a clean up it was time to get busy, I found this old paperback book and started cutting...
I just make random accordian folds
cut, cut, cut...
and place inside...
Print out the letters on another book page that fits the printer.
Cut out in a banner shape and add the sting to the cage and glue the letters to the string

By the way the cards it in the slots at the top of the cage.
I asked my cousin who has a flair for writing to make some envelopes to add to the cage.
The bottom comes of to retrieve the cards.
Now, it is ready to sell!  The person who buys it can add their personal touch to it easily, add a bow in your color, add a background paper to the letters.
Now, if you used this for your wedding what to do with it after the wedding?
1. add your wedding shoes, invitation, photo etc...
2. add you candles from your ceremony or...
3. just add candles, take it outside and hang it from a tree for a romantic evening.
4. what would you do with it? (doesn't need to be wedding related)
