My dh and I play so much Gin Rummy that I've got a lot of old cards to play with so I am always looking for ways to reuse or repurpose them. I learned how to construct this box of cards from Origami Boxes by Florence Temko. It is crafted of 21 cards and requires no gluing. Prior to assembly, the cards were further distressed and inked. Box is decorated with foam stickers and ribbon trim; the top is decorated with a paper accordian medallion and a wooden bead. I learned how to make the medallions last summer -- you can see other uses and instructions contained within this post. I also used them in another card trick: Casino Royale - link below.
