White Hat Boxes with String Handles
Great for a project
I used hot glue on the flaps and decoupaged maps on them and they turned out great! Made it stronger overall. Perfect for what I wanted.

White hat Boxes with string handles
Really, I would maybe recommend this to someone. I have hat boxes to keep my many hats in. It is hard to find GOOD hat boxes. These do protect my hats, but they are not sturdy enought. My other hat boxes are round and made of hard pressed paper or paper board. They can be stacked and won't collapse.
The boxes I got from you are not sturdy and if I stacked them under my other hat boxes, they would collapse. They would not travel well, and if they got knocked around, I am afraid that my hat inside would get crushed.
The problem is, I don't have much choice. i need hat boxes because I can't find the harder ones. So, to protect my hats, I have to buy what I can find.
Sorry this review is not as good as it could be if your boxes were sturdier.

I ordered these items which were identified as hat boxes for that purpose. They are nothing more than large gift boxes (which I didn't want or need), with holes and thin roping for a handle. They are flimsy, not sturdy. If it didn't cost to ship them, I would have returned them. If you need gift boxes, they are fine for that, but not for storing. They could have used a thicker cardboard and produced a better product for the price. Should not be advertised as hat boxes.

PLEASE PAY ATTENTION BEFORE BUYING
Apparently I looked at the average overall rating, and only read 1 or 2 actual reviews. It turns out most of the 4 and 5-star ratings come from early 2010 [reviews are listed by date, with newest at top]. After that, there may have been a change in the product quality, as you'll see by the abundance of very negative reviews from late 2010 to the present.
The number one, and frequent, complaint is that the box is entirely too flimsy. Mine arrived today and I totally agree. It is precisely the strength and thickness of the give-away fold down boxes you get from any mainstream department store, for free! The fold-in corner flaps are even perforated along the crease -- in other words, almost guaranteed to tear with repeated use. That perforated fold also causes the sides to collapse inward when upright: they will not remain open to give the box its intended square shape. Easy to see how the whole box will collapse under any weight, particularly if not evenly distributed over the box-top.
But here's the last straw. Unlike the photo, mine came with the holes punched for feeding the tie-string thru the larger BOTTOM container, not thru the lid! And to complete the issue, the provided string is not long enough to even touch, much less tie! In other words totally useless.
At $5.99 plus shipping and possibly state tax, it is a huge waste of money. The only redeeming feature is that I might save the thick string [which does have metal covers on the ends, like shoelaces] for my toddler grandchildren to 'sew' with punch cards or large beads.
