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.

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.

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.

They are functional for what we will be using them for (teens retreat). The bands go horizontal over the chest themselves vs. vertical which would give it a better banding look.

Mini Treasure Chests for VBS
I purchased a dozen of these mini treasure chests to check out for our church High Seas VBS program. I was very pleased with the size and quality for the price. Our director will be ordering 140 more so all the children have one.

Perfect for my use
I'm using them for a Christmas story at our church and I needed containers for myrrh and frankincense. I spray painted the boxes myself and gave them out so the children could help "tell" the story. Perfect!!
