Bringing treats to a party, or event, heres a free/cheap cupcake, cookie, treat box..  cuz really who knows if you'll get that dish back..


Go forth, gather some boxes!


(instructions are in little notes in the images)

Step 1: Tear Open Box


Step 2: Put Together


Step 3: Cover Gooop!


Step 4: Cut Bevels and Shut.


Your words are few, as I look at image #1 it strikes me as a mailing-box - how have you modified it? (not familiar with these boxes)<br /> <br /> L<br />
I think they usually open from the thin side.
Right, this converts it to a Pizza-box?<br /> <br /> L<br />
&nbsp;Precisely. It is a clever use for something you can get for free, though.&nbsp;
But for how long? Over here people will <em>sell</em> you boxes, they'll not give them away. How long before the US postal service gets wise..?<br /> <br /> L<br />
oh but they are wise. <br /> you can not ship something none-priority in a priority box. <br /> im sure they have calculated an estimate of how many boxes they will lose and figured it into the cost of the shipping. also most priority boxes are Flat rate.&nbsp; thus the cost to the customer is fixed, despite how much it weights (im sure there are limits)&nbsp; some people will ship lighter things, some will ship heavier things. thus the cost evens out for them. <br /> <br /> and trust me, its hard to disguise a priority box from a postal worker, even wrapped in brown paper. they are very specific sizes, and the workers know. <br /> they also have priority mail printed on the inside as well so you cant simple turn them inside out an retape them. <br /> (ive tried, as i try to recycle things, and do not always need or want to ship things priority)<br />
unless theres a super surge on &quot;treat-box makers&quot; and other uses of them&nbsp; i doubt a dent would even be made. ;)<br /> <br />
This would be the second Instructable I've seen pointing out that these things are free. It's some kind of honesty system I guess? Cardboard packaging costs, and one day you'll be paying for it. (so stock-up while you can!)<br /> <br /> L<br />
note comment above. <br /> they are paid for by the consumer in one way or another. <br /> you just arent made acutely aware of the fact that you are paying for them.<br /> &nbsp;since it doesn't say &quot;box&quot; &quot;$$&quot;on&nbsp; the receipt. <br /> <br /> <br /> besides, i often mail things in them after ive used them as treatboxes. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> you could definitely fit a calzone. perhaps two if you situated them in a specific way.<br />
It's the I'bles on &quot;free boxes&quot; which might possibly shift the situation. If enough people get this idea the US Postal service will start charging for boxes. It's a good idea, but it needs to be exploited before the service catches up.<br /> <br /> L<br />
you could fit a small pizza :) . but not a standard pizza without bending it. <br />
Calzone?<br /> <br /> L<br />
Nice way to repurpose priority mail supplies!<br />
