I'm looking for small, clear, plastic boxes to put cookies in for wedding favors. I've seen people post pictures on Flickr with like 2 4 inch cookie inside each one, or 4 small cookies with some raffia (sp?)

Where or where can I find them? I need them for this weekend but I think that ain't happening. Still need them for the future though!

You could order them online but not by this weekend. Should have started looking a month ago icon_smile.gif

Have you called/looked at any party stores or hobby stores in your area? I've even seen them at Target before

Wow, Target? I'm there ALL the time and I've never seen them what section did you see them in? What state are you in?

I have called hobby lobby, michaels, arne's party warehouse, party city, no one seems to have them.

Can someone provide a link or store name where I can find them online?

I have used the clear chinese take out boxes. Worked great at christmas time. I love papermart, prices are reasonable and fast shipping.

icon_redface.gif sorry I wasn't more clear in my post. I have searched on google and not quite found what I was looking for exactly. I haven't searched in depth as I should have.

I was just posting here hoping maybe someone who does this all the time has a favorite place (online) to buy the boxes I'm talking about. Or know a brick and mortar store that actually sells them. I understand that this was not the right route to take and will not ask again about where to buy products.

I have been looking for weeks for clear boxes. I know how you feel. Found this awesome site. They will even send you samples of boxes and a catalog. Just got mine yesterday. Im not sure exactly what size box you need but I got different boxes in size 4 1/2" x 5 7/8" .

I'm not sure what you took offense to, but you shouldn't feel that you can't ask questions about where to buy things.

Someone usually comes along to help........

Dreme - This is fantastic! I was looking for clear plastic boxes myself and found them right here on the site you suggested:

CharmingChelsea - Perhaps this is what you are looking for?

Thanks again, Dreme!! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif You may have helped up both out! thumbs_up.gif

Tiggy2 - Thank you also!! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif That was a big help as well! icon_biggrin.gif I found the boxes I used to use for stationary that rather than being clear all the way through, are a bit more sturdy with a white base:

Thanks Ladies!

Thanks so much ladies!

Those links were exactly what I was talking about. I didn't find any at a store in time for my event (a wedding show) so I just used treat bags.

I am ordering some of these asap so I'll be prepared.

dreme, thank you so much for this site.

chelsea, glad it worked out for you in the end. I think that's the most frustrating thing in our business that we have to rely on online stores to carry these items. I too wish there was some physical store where i could find all my decorating and packaging needs.

tracy, out of curiosity, what do you use those boxes for? Cookie cards or something? It sounds really nice.
