    If you want to make the awesome mailing boxes like you've seen around here, here are your supplies! I bought these for my save the dates but did something a little different. I used some of the supplies on my new idea but everything is new/unused.

     

    • 30 Mailing Boxes: from Sand Art Supplies
    • I large sheet of Black Foam for Handles
    • Gold Brads for Handles (enough for 30 boxes plus some extras)
    • 3 Rolls of Black and White Ribbon for straps (plus a roll that I cut up but never used)
    • 30 Shipping Tags

     

    This should save you from driving around town so you can get right to work. You'll just need to purchase a hot glue gun (for assembling), glue stick to attach the shipping labels and the supplies for the message in the bottles. The boxes will fit a 6 1/2 tall bottle which you can purchase here:  (http://www.sandartsu...age_bottles.htm) I'd get the sand from walmart or a craft store so you don't have to pay shipping.

     

    I'm selling for $25 obo plus shipping which should be no more than $10 in a flat rate box

        I am confused on how to wrap the ribbon, does it go completely around the box??

              It does. I did not make these myself but there are a few other threads where ladies did make them I can point you to.Check out my pinterest board and you can see the picture before you follow the link:

                I did not create these and ship them, that's why I'm selling the supplies I bought. I've heard of them being $1-$3 to ship depending on how much sand you add to the bottles.

                  These items are still available. The only reason I didn't use them is what I wanted to put in the boxes was too big. I checked for some other ladies and in a flat rate box it's about $20 to ship to canada and $11 in the US.
