DIY Papier-M¿¿ch¿¿ Mini Treasure Chests
Painted these gold for my son's pirate birthday party, then let the kids decorate them with adhesive jewels and pirate foam stickers. They look really good and it was a fun craft.

I ordered these treasure chests when the one I was going to order was out of stock. I was very pleased with them. They are sturdy, gender neutral, and fun to decorate. We had the kids decorate them with markers and jewels. I loved seeing their creativity.

Not perfect, but very good for the price.
I bought 4 sets (48 individual treasure chests) for my church's summer VBS program. About 4 of them were defective/unusable, but I only had 40 students so that wasn't a problem. On several of them, the latches didn't line up, but, again, not a big deal. I spray painted them black for our Pirate theme craft project, had to do 2 coats, which I expected- they turned out GREAT! The kids decorated them and filled them with gold doubloons and other "treasures" - they loved it! For what I paid, I didn't expect them to all be perfect, so this is a very good deal and a good product.

Ok product, flimsy lock
Bought for my daughter's party- paint your own treasure chest activity. Overall Ok, you get what you pay for. They are tiny and kids were a little frustrated that the lock/ closing wouldn't actually stay closed.We just kept telling them they were there for "decoration" not really to keep it closed!

Treasure Chest Fun
Great to decorate with jewels, coins and gold trim for Son Treasure VBS. Made scrolls with scripture verse for inside and shiny pennies with daily "God is" words glued to coins.

These small chests will work perfect to be painted as our craft at Son Treasure Island Vacation Bible School.

Great for projects
Great for its price, they could be built a little better but its great for its purpose and price. I bought this for my daughters pirate party, shes turning 3 so this was great. The only compliant I have was that the strips on the top of the treasure chest were coming off a little, but nothing a little glue couldn't fix.

Great - but order extra if you have boys--some of them have hearts!
Loved these! My only caveat is that, although the description does not mention it, some of these boxes have hearts on the front and sides, and some do not.
If you need these for a girl's party, that's no problem. But we ordered these for my 9-year-old twin boys' birthday party, and the hearts did not go over well with my sons.
Fortunately, I had ordered an extra set of these, and managed to find enough of them without hearts for everyone at the party. (We did try removing the hearts, but then the boxes looked damaged.)
Other than that, these are just great! The boys at the party had a fantastic time decorating these with markers, stick-on jewels from this site, and self-adhesive pirate stickers from a craft store. Fun!

Mini Treasure Chest
These are okay. My daughter put a Zhu Zhu pet inside of one. She didn't notice the somewhat shoddy craftsmanship, but I did! Thankfully, once you add stickers and paint, they look better.
