I’ve been carrying my tarot deck with me in my bag to school lately, but as you can see from the first picture, the box itself is taking a bit of damage. I’ve been keeping my eye out for something to carry the cards in that would handle banging around a bit better.
Cut to yesterday, I’m walking around Michaels and I see that they’re selling all of their decorative boxes for 50% off! Most were regular boxes, but there were several that were “hollow book” style, in various sizes. The smallest ones I found were just slightly larger than my deck.
50% off means that the box itself was $3.15 after tax, and I found a pretty blue scarf at Target next door on clearance for $2.98. Everything fits nicely in together, and the box is held shut by a magnetic clasp. It’s made of a fairly sturdy cardboard-type material, so we’ll see how long the corners survive in my bag, but it looks really pretty and keeps things nice and neat.
TL;DR – go to Michaels and look for shit on sale! You never know what you’ll find.
