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!”

How awesome is this guy!? Thanks to Caitlin for sharing this and, I'm sure, being the spark that spawned a hoard of Nom-Monsters taking over wedding card duties.

  1. OMG! I want! This is an amazing idea. I’m gonna see if I can make one to fit my theme…(oh the ideas!)

  2. So kyoooooooot! I made a Mario question block with a floating 8-bit heart for our card box.

  3. I’m copying this. No joke. Although I may paint the mailbox in kitty stripes or cover it in fur to make it look like a cat monster.

  4. I hate that I want to do this, but I really really want to “steal” this idea! UGH! It’s so fricken fantastic!!!!

      • 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.

  5. I want this. And not as a wedding card box, but sitting in front of my house as my everyday mailbox.


    • 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.

  6. 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. 🙂

      • 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! 🙁

  7. 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:

    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! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  8. We did something simular, only we antiqued ours and stuck our names on Totally would of done this monster though!

  9. 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!

  10. 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!

  11. I completely stole this idea. Like even the wording on the sign. I apologize and thank you all at once!
