DIY Wood Hinged Boxes
The treasure Boxes were purchased for VBS. We had the Children glue Sea Shells to them(whish we also purchased from Oriental Trading.)
What a great project, one that the children can keep and use. The quality surpassed our expectations. and the cost was 1/3 of what we would have had to pay if purchased in a craft store.

Would have been a great craft project...
Was excited about the opportunities for projects with these little boxes. Unfortunately the wood was very inferior, and most of the hinged closures on the boxes were not placed centrally, resulting in not being able to decorate the boxes and give them for gifts. Was VERY disappointed, because usually Oriental Trading products are in very good condition.

Number one purchase
These are just great! I purchases this to sell at the Farmers market and they go really fast after I decorate them with different items. I purchase these every year.

A decent box for the price
I ordered 24 boxes total. All required sanding before painting. If you are making a gift or are crafting boxes to sell, figure some sanding time in your timeline. Two of the 24 boxes were unusable. The corner of one was chipped off and another the hinges were so far off that the lid was not flush with the bottom. Fortunately I needed 22 total so I was covered, but still, I'm now out the cost of two boxes. Not worth the shipping cost to return. The boxes are priced very well compared to other sources with similar quality, so I will buy again. I love the design of this box, it's a perfect size for a trinket box, it's simple and it provides a lot of surface area on the lid to be creative.

The boxes were somewhat smaller than expected and not exactly 'square' or smooth (watch out for slivers), but okay if you plan on refinishing them or covering them. would have expected the price to be a little lower for the quality of merchandise.

I bought these to hold beads for each student. They are the perfect size and are sturdy. They are worth the money spent. You won't find anything that sturdy for that price anywhere else.

Nice VBS craft.
the kids were learning about the "treasures of Heaven" and these were a nice project for them. They had fun, and really enjoyed decorating them.
