I could have tons of these type of boxes, and can't figure out what to do with them either. That is a challenge. I'll be thinking on it.

I did wrap a package I sent to Miss Disney up there in a cigarette box to mail, and the post office didn't like that too much.

When I smoked I would always stick things in my boxes.
I once had the thought to cover them with a cute fabric, and put a closer on the front.
(like those coupon holder thingies with the button, and elastic, whatever they are called)
But I never got around to it.  Good luck in finding something to do with them.

I've used them as packaging for other little trinkets or wrapped treats. You can wrap them in thin fabric or scrapbooking paper, add glitter or stickers! It's just figuring out what to put in them.  Tongue  Wee little scrapbooks of the two of you maybe?

You could always use them for mini-survival kits, like some do with altoid tins. You can also customize them to fit whatever the recipient is supposed to be 'surviving.'

I glued a grid of them to a piece of wood and then primed and used them as a sort of canvas?

I have about 300 of these and I'm really trying to figure out what to do with them also...
