Is this a good box for bouquets?

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
I'm sorry to keep asking about this.

I don't want to use mugs or buckets or baskets or anything glass etc...so I found these boxes. Would they work? There are a hundred diferent designs which I LOVE, and the small size looks like it would be good for a medium size bouquet, like 6-8 cookies, I think. If I put the florists foam and rocks and tissue paper in it would it work? TIA!!

Or does it sound too floppy or not sturdy enough?

I don't see why not. I used a fabric covered box from Michaels for one. It was pretty sturdy. You may have to add weight to the bottom to balance the cookies.

I think they will. I agree - may have to put in some weight. I use everything. Give it a shot. Let us know how you make out.

I think they would work. I, too, use just about anything! Just make sure to add weight to the bottom. I usually buy a bag of rocks from our Dollar Tree and put them in the bottom and then cover then with the foam. I would give them a try! icon_smile.gif

Oh good, thank you! They are so inexpensive and pretty, and they have them for every holiday. I will probably order some soon. I think somebody said that they get the marble/rock type bags from the dollar store and put that in for weight, I will have to try that.

LOL @ twopeas, we posted at the same time! So it's you that used the dollar store rocks. What a great idea! I'm so excited to try my first bouquets, I just ordered a daffodil, rose and lily cutter to make actual flower cookie bouquets. I'm so excited!

Im so guilty of going into a store - unlike others that have posted that get ideas for designs - I get ideas for containers!!! ANYTHING with a hole!! Im getting excited just thinking about it! O, Sorry ...
You can use anything!!! Shiney has the best idea (IMHO) in her pics - its a bouquet for a nurse (I believe) in a Gauze pad box!! I mean .. How clever was that?!?!?!
Once you get the "feel" of how to anchor things in - no matter what your method .. your container possibility is limitless!! (that IS a cute box though!)
Good Luck!

I just went through the site and ordered some myself! I also use the Chinese take-out boxes as containers. I have not ordered them from this site but I usually get them at Micheals or Hobby Lobby. They get them in for all seasons. In my pictures, the wild about you Valentine's bouquet is in an animal print take out box.

I also look at anything with a hole. I just saw a cute little piggy bank in the shape of a purse and stood in the middle of the store trying to figure out how to get cookie sticks into the coin opening. I bought it (LOL)!

BTW: Heidi ... You can MAKE it work icon_wink.gif You can MAKE anything work!! If you look at the basket of baby valentines Ive got in my pics .. the basket (which was really an early easter basket on sale for $3!!) was made out of string .. and it was very light, and strings were spaces pretty far apart! You cant see the inside nor was it wobbly ... the basket was so pretty!

Twopeas - I'd been dissapointed in you if you had'nt!! icon_wink.gif

I was just looking at that site. Very nice boxes. Too bad you have to buy so many at once. But I'm sure I can find a place to put them. icon_smile.gif

toleshed-I think the package was for 6. I thought that was pretty decent. Some of the bakery style plastic containers you have to buy like 150 per case! I do hate having to buy in quantity when I just want one to see if I even like the size or material it's made out of. Thanks for all of the tips and advice. I'm sure I'll get the itch now to stick cookies into anything I can find, or maybe I should at least try to do one before I get all crazy about it, lol. It's good to know too that it doesn't have to be super sturdy, as long as it's bottom heavy to support the cookies.

Oh, toleshed, I did see that the one I posted was for 24, I didn't see that, I was looking at the ones that had 6 in them. I can't wait to go look at all of your cookeis that have bouquets in them now and see what you all use.

Those will work. If you look at my photos you will see some bouquets where I used small 4x4 boxes. I believe I have seen them referred to as mug boxes. I don't even weigh them down. Sometimes it's all in where you place your cookies to distribute the weight evenly.

Another alternative to weigh down containers are dry beans. That's what I used the pumpkin with the fall leaves.

i actually use these boxes all the time. the large boxes are very thick...like real cardboard. the small ones are just like really thick poster board. sometimes they seem a little top heavy, but since i started putting the cookies closer to the actual box, they seem to do fine
