Is this a good box for bouquets? - Page 2

Thank you Kneadacookie! I was hoping the small ones would be thicker but as long as it works I don't mind. I thought the big ones sounded just too big, have you used them a lot or do you use the smaller ones more often? Thanks!

i have a million of the larger ones. i got them from another girl who was going out of business. the larger boxes are really overkill. i have used them before, but i try not to. the smaller ones are just a perfect size. for awhile the crayon one was my most popular. now i just try to keep a lot of the solid colors on hand. they work for anything. oh...and make sure you get the doctor bag ones.

It's good to know what ones are the most popular, thanks! I didn't get the drs bag but I got the white one that has the red cross in the middle. I'll have to go check the crayon one, what kinds of bouquets do you put in there? Are they all kid focused? My favorite ones are the ones that have kind of funky flowers on them, there were a bunch to pick from. Also, the "home" ones, with the gate or the house for a welcome home type thing. I'm so excited to try them!!

Heidi,
You said you were looking at the boxes that had 6 in them, where are those? I only see larger quantities...

If you go to the "gift basket supplies" section on the lefthand side and click on it, it will take you to about 9 different categories to click on and most of them are the boxes. You can pick from either solid colors, holidays, Christmas or special occasions. Most of them have six in a container and they are $5.70 for the small size, I ordered a bunch of those. Acutally, let me try a link:

I can't wait to find out how it goes for you, heidicrumbs. I've never done bouquets in those boxes and when i use them in a chocolate arrangement, i find them to be very flimsy. But then i've never thought of weighing them down with rocks, either, duh.

1. Get well these designs vary, but i do a ton of the little doctor with add. medical shaped cookies

2. Fundraisers it seems like i'm always doing a lot of bouquets to be auctioned off. these are usually my choice which end up being the theme of the fundraiser.

3. Thank you a number of these are for teachers, but also coaches, bosses, principals, etc.

4. Teachers most of these are thank you's but i've also had a couple for teacher's bdays and welcome to the school.

5. Centerpieces mostly baby showers or bridal showers.

6. Welcome baby

7. Birthday

8. Christmas

9. Easter

10. Retirement

That about covers it. After that, it's a lot of very customized...."can you do tweety bird with a bunch of purses..." you never know what people will ask for.

Thank you so much for posting that, I really had no idea what people would want in a bouquet. I mean I knew what I would want but not Joe Public. THANKS!!

I just got my order in and I love them all. I have already place a bouquet in one and weighed it down with the rocks and it worked perfectly. I will try to post the picture as soon as I get home today after school. I ordered the Chocolate Sprinkles, Pink Rendezvous, Mod Squares Aqua& Chocolate, and Cherry Blossom Breeze to get ready for Mother's Day. I was thinking I would do flowers, hearts, purses and shoes in the matching colors. I also ordered Houndstooth, TV Sports and Balls, and Popcorn to get ready for Father's Day. I was thinking about doing sports fan with all different sports items and popcorn with "Top Pop". I also ordered solid colors to use for lots of other things.

I also ordered the clear cello bags for putting my cookies in. I ordered the CC2B which are 4 3/4 by 6 3/4 inches. They are the perfect size! I ordered the 1000 box. I know that sounds like a bunch, but you would be amazed how fast I go through bags. This also made them only 3 cents each.

I ordered on Tuesday and received them by FedEx this morning! They were very quick!

I will definitly order from them again! icon_smile.gifthumbs_up.gif

Do you have a shop you sell from or are you a home processor? How do you get so many orders?

I just do this on the side. I am actually a teacher so I think that is why I get so much and the fact I am doing it as a fundraiser for my son. He is going to Japan this summer as a People to People Student Ambassador. I have done it for years just by word of mouth.
