Om nom nom. More wedding cards plz! #Decor#card boxes#decor#steal-this-idea June 11 2010 | Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin When OBT member Caitlin first introduced us to her wedding card nomming monster he (yes, it's a he) looked like this… Caitlin explains, "We were contemplating an interesting wedding card recepticle. My first idea was a decorated mailbox so people could leave us 'mail' in the form of wedding cards. I was pretty pleased with this idea since I haven't seen it anywhere else." But her partner had even bigger and better plans for their little monster… He suggested glueing eyes and teeth on the thing and making it a Wedding Card Nom-Monster. They even added arms and a sign saying, "I Can Haz Ur Wedding Cardz pls? Nom nom!"

Reply epic lulz Reply I hate that I want to do this, but I really really want to "steal" this idea! UGH! It's so fricken fantastic!!!! Reply Haha, feel free to steal at will! 🙂 Reply Hi Caitlin, How did you fastern the arms on? What are the arms made of? My daughter is getting married in 3 weeks and loves it. thanks 1 agrees Reply I want this. And not as a wedding card box, but sitting in front of my house as my everyday mailbox. I CAN HAS MAIL PLZ 1 agrees Reply hellz yeah! Wish we had regular mailboxes 'round here, but you only see them in the country or a few neighborhoods that are in the not-so-nice areas of town. Reply Thanks everyone! When we made this I knew that other OBBs could do SO much more with this. We are not crafty people at all so this was a huge DIY project for us. And all it took was some styrofoam balls, hot glue, a stuffed monkey, and some posterboard. 🙂 Reply As awesome as this is, I now pity the poor armless monkey. xD Reply HAHA Rob had to throw it away after we cut off its arms because he felt so bad for it and couldn't stand to look at it! 🙁 Reply oh my goodness, i love it! theres no way i can't use this idea! Reply I LOVE this little guy. I want to take him home and make him my pet- and hope that my fiance does not call the nice men in white suits for having a random mailbox as a pet. It should be fine… as long as I don't start talking to him, right? Haha. I adore card monsers. I was first introduced to them on ruffledblog last year. Yes, ruffled. We're all guilty of hitting up the mainsteam wedding sites once in a great while so don't judge! Lol. Anyway, I cannot access the post (which is sad because they had the full story of this kick ass couple), but it was one of the best weddings ever! I typed in "queer wedding pink dress bowling alley" into google search, or you can follow this link: msawesome.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/Jessica_nik8.jpg Thank you Caitlin, this monster is sooo cute. I am sure quite a few brides will find this to be a rather good source of inspiration! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Reply I showed my fiance this link and he came home with a mailbox. 1 agrees Reply We did something simular, only we antiqued ours and stuck our names on it..lol Totally would of done this monster though! Reply I'm doing this for our wedding. 🙂 We got the mailbox at Lowe's, got some googly eyes and big, fat pipe cleaners for arms. I'm super excited to finish him this weekend :):) Its like the most non-my-mother part of my wedding!!! YAY! Reply This is one of the coolest things ever! My maid of honour and I made one of these little guys, but we also made him fuzzy, with black fun fur. He was a hit at my wedding! Reply I completely stole this idea. Like even the wording on the sign. I apologize and thank you all at once! Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
