DIY Small Drawer Boxes
It is what it is.
The boxes are sturdy enough for decorating and to store small treasures. The price is right. They are not as sturdy as match boxes of old but that was never promised. They meet a need and I love them and will buy more.

Sometimes it is hard to tell exactly what you will get with the descriptions. It does say paper, but I was thinking it would be like cardboard paper. They are very flimsy, and very small. Will not work for what I wanted, and I can't think of anything to use them for. At least the price was low, so I didn't waste a lot of money on them.

some boxes came crushed, but overall, AFTER decoration, they were a nice little party gift. they do NOT include decorations or items to fill boxes with

Just what I needed
I looked into so many sites to find the small paper drawer boxes I almost gave up. Then I went into Oriental Trading and found exactly what I needed. I wish I would have gone to your site first and from now on I will !

Matchbox (paper drawers)
The paper they are made out of is a little thin but once they are decorated they may be OK. The "drawers" are also a little tight to open smoothly. Overall not a bad price for the quantity and they were all intact and not squished as some products I have bought from here.

These are cute little boxes. A little smaller then I thought but they worked out just fine. They are as small as a match light box. Just to give you an idea.

Oriental Trading has been the best if you are going to have a party. The are the best in prices compare to all the other supplies stores. Great for weddings and birthday party's.

Not as nice as real matchboxes
If I'd known how shoddy these are, in comparison to the little Diamond matchboxes, I probably would have just bought a ton of matches, dumped them into a seperate container, then painted the boxes they came in. These boxes are very very thin, more like the cardstock paper you can get for your printer than like the chipboard I was hoping for. They will still work adequately for my project, but only just barely.
On the plus side, unlike most oriental trading products I've purchased, the packs of boxes were intact, not missing pieces, not broken, and the packaging was fairly nice.

great little gift
have you seen the gift idea of decorating address labels and wrapping them around Hershey Nuggets and placing in a box? These are the perfect size for 1 Nuggets, and a 2X4 mailing label covers the box perfectly. A cute gift!
