Cool boxes, no idea what to make with them. Answered

So awhile ago I bought these mints because the box was cool. Now I've got two boxes and no idea what to use/make with them. Does anybody have any ideas?

Cool Boxes


Could make a nice compact for a young lady :-)

Thats a good idea! I am married, so some sort of ... thing, to put in it would be a nifty idea. Saw an instructable for solid perfume stuff. Do you suppose that would work in a box like this?

I am not familiar with the solid perfume so I am not sure. It may get expensive if you don't partition it off (compartments).

how about a joke mint box bomb? open it up (which pulls on a wire closing the circuit) and BOOM!!! cussing sailor friend.

Would love to play jokes on my fellow Navy friends, anything that would resemble or act as a bomb would for sure get me a one way ticket to bubba's house of lovin. :)

A music box, but instead of a dancing ballerina, LEDs that pulse or change colour with the music. How big are the boxes? Could the music source be an mp3 player?

Boxes are about 3 or 4 inches long, 2 inches wide, about 1cm tall. Digital music box is an idea, not sure how to do all that yet. They are a bit too small for a minty boost type thing too. :o(
