Clear Takeout Boxes
makes for cute shower gifts!
First off, fast shipping! When I got these, the top flaps were a lot stiffer than I thought they would be so use a little muscle to get them closed. I put in blue and white wrapped candies in them for a friend's baby shower and they were a hit! I'd recommend them.

I bought these boxes to use as Baby Shower parting favors. I like that they are clear-- but the quality of the material is poor.
The plastic is not completely transparent-- showing a blurred swirly/fibrous design. It is also very hard plastic-- not pliable like the opaque takeout boxes that I've ordered before.
The biggest complaint is that one of the flaps on top have an embossed sign and design saying "open / close" with large arrows. This tacky add-on detracts from the clean tailored look that I was going for.
Though I am a faithful and repeat OTC customer, I would definitely not buy this item again.

They're Just Okay
Be careful with this product when ordering. They are a lot smaller than I planned for. So, if you want to order them, plan on that they hold about 10-12 Hersey's kisses if that helps with your "sizing" of this product.

Very difficult to close
I was very excited to find these little boxes at such a great price. They are very cute, but I found them extremely difficult to close. The lids were so stiff that several of them snapped when I was trying to close them. The edges pulled away a bit as well which made them very sharp. Unfortunately, I can't recommend these to anyone.

I'm doing a candy buffet for my wedding favors so when I saw these, I immediately fell in love. Just in case though, I only got one order to see how they were. It's lucky that I did because when they came, most of them were dirty, and one was even cracked. Since I'm using wrapped and unwrapped candies for the favors, I decided not to buy the take-out boxes from Oriental Trading. However, if you only have wrapped candies, these may be fine. The price is the best I've seen so far for such good quality! Others complained about the folding being difficult, but since I'm not doing the folding myself, that wasn't a problem for me. I really wish they had been clean because I would have bought them from here :(

A little hard to close, but worth it. I used them for a baby shower, as candy station take home boxes.
