What do you ladies think? Are you tired of the Chinese take out boxes? I was thinking about using them for packaging some of my cookies. I can't decide whether or not I like them anymore. Like them or hate them?

I still love them, mostly because Chinese food never comes in them anymore. Just difficult to find original packaging ideas.

alimonkey, didn't you love how the Chinese restaurants would stuff the containers to the gills! icon_smile.gif It looked like a feast for one but could easily feed a family of ten. Thanks ladies! Here's my idea, Chinese holiday carton filled with chocolate mice, pair of chopsticks with the bow and a card that reads, "Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse!" Thought that would give everyone a chuckle.

Have you ever checked out www.orientaltrading.com? They have some cute gift packaging ideas there also.

I like them, I use them all the time myself they come in different sizes and colors. Orientaltrading is a good place to look.

There is a couple of great sites that I like which sell really neat packaging...One is:

www.papermart.com

and the other is an Ebay seller who sells absolutely beautiful boxes for weddings etc..but I'm not sure if she sells Christmas packaging..she is:

I love papermart too! icon_smile.gif Ugghh I love the gable boxes but I don't need 100 of them and I don't have any crafty friends to split them with. I know this is a little early but I just love Christmas.
