Treasure Chest Box
Fun accessory for pirate theme
The boxes were just the right size to fill with the set of gold coins I ordered and some old Mardi Gras beads. They made great pirate treasure chests.

does not stay together
This chest was way smaller than I expected. Putting it together was difficult do to the glue spots not matching up with the flaps and the sides wouldn't stay folded cuz they weren't long enough to go through the holes at the bottom. If your just looking for a small box that looks like a Treasure chest then go ahead and get this considering it's only $4 but we used a shoebox, for bowling shoes cuz it only opened on one side, and decorated it with construction paper. It was sturdier and held more treasure.

Could be better
While I thought the detail and size of the chest was good, the glue to hold it together was awful. I ended up having to put tape on every area where there was glue. If the glue could actually be improved I would have given it 5 stars.

Will serve its purpose
I will use this for my religious ed class as a prize box. When assembling I decided that I will need to use additonal glue or double sided tape to help keep it held together. The pre stick tape doesn't keep it secure.

Tape the entire box
As a true tightwad, I prefer to recycle and not trash something like this little box. If you're looking for something to hold up for years without maintenance (read: lots of tape), this isn't it. My spouse uses this at his annual office Halloween party. We fill it with plastic coins. After 3 years and a few repairs with Scotch tape here and there, the box looked kinda ratty, so this year I used clear packing tape and taped every inch of the box; bent it back into shape, taped it again to stay that way; sprayed the inside with gold paint; and then added some black glitter. It's now ready for action next month and many more years to come as a silly prop that everyone loves.

Decent for the price
From the reviews here, and seeing it in a local party store, I had a good idea what to expect. The box itself is fairly sturdy, but the sticky tape used to hold it together is all but useless - understand and accept this and you're fine. It took me just a tiny bit of scotch tape and 2 staples (I wanted the lid a bit more secure) to make them solidly functional.
About the size of a large shoe box, with a slightly domed lid, for those curious on size.

I use my box for my Project Read Treasure Sentences. It is perfect for those. Yes, it is true that the box would not stay together, so I used a hot glue gun. The problem was solved. It works well for my instructional needs.
