  • Gift boxes - help!

    I'm looking for some "cheap but nice" gift boxes and I'm struggling to find anyone selling the sizes I'm after

    I managed to get a few in town today, but the shop selling them didn't have very many.

    The sizes I need are:
    15cm x 15cm x 6cm
    15cm x 15cm x 9cm
    15cm x 10cm x 4cm

    Either decorated or plain white/ivory etc. would be perfect... and ideally around £1.50 or so each (that's what I paid in town today).

    Does anyone know anywhere I can get these online maybe??? Have tried Google but found only boxes that were either too small, too big or too expensive!

    EDITED TO ADD: Have found some more locally! Ta, everyone!

        Thanks - I had a wee look and they've got some that are the right size but they're £2.50... will keep them in mind if I can't get any more locally!!

        How easy are they to make?! Am quite short of time at the moment! Can you recommend materials etc. at all? They need to be rigid boxes, so I guess that'd either have to be very thick card or several layers?

          there is a shop on ebay called packaging world or my world:mm_world.
          pretty decent boxes and you should be able to get them from about 35p
          upwards. i have used them and have been pleased, the bracelet boxes are great.

            Thanks just sally!

            Unfortunately I don't think their boxes are quite deep enough for me, but their prices are certainly good!!

                I use mid pac - they have jewellery boxes which are really quite rigid (they can withstand my mum standing on top of them anyway)

                Most of the boxes are available in different sizes so have a look around - I hope it helps

                    Glad to have helped!

                    Their delivery can be quite high though - it costs about the same to buy 15 boxes as it did to buy 1, so I stocked up I use the large square jewellery boxes to make personalised tiara boxes for brides - they are very popular. Extremely good quality too, These come ready made for you - some of the flat pack ones aren't so thick.

                        I need some help !
                        Due to the name of my business I have worked very hard to add little touches to everything i do (not the things I make, i hasten to add, but my stationery, envelopes used, bags I sell things in etc) in hot pink Its my trade mark.
                        Now I have decided next year having read quite extensively on here about tarnishing and for various other reasons to move over to doing the bulk of my jewellery in boxes, hoping it will save on setup time for fairs,as well as keeping things in better order.
                        This is probably more of a personal thing I suspect, but does anyone think that boxing up everything I sell in hot pink boxes is going to have an impact on my sales/potential customers?Black is so classic (aka boring ) but it is much simpler as far as giving people choice (or not) goes.......
                        any suggestions?

                          I'd prefer hot pink to boring black, but others might think different. You could give the buyers a choice of either one I suppose?

                            thanks!
                            I've just found a great site with some lovely hot pink items,altho they have a logo on but I have a plan
                            I suppose if I got some black ones 'just in case' then i wouldn't have to buy loads,just enough as a backup and spend lots instead on nice hot pink things hehe
