    What to do with tea boxes?

    I have all of these little wooden tea boxes and have no idea what to do with them. I cant bear to throw them away either. Anyone have ideas on what to do with them? I could use them to store things but I'd love to do something more crafty with them.

    Thanks!

    You could glue fabric to them that went with your room decor and place them on tables HGTV style.

    You could glue or nail them together to make a compartmentalized shelf or bins. Or you could disassemble them and frame the sides as decorative panels. Or use them as mini gift boxes-- fill them with some handmade envelopes filled with loose tea, a tea ball, and a gift card. Or fill them with hand made soaps or bath salts as a gift. Or use them as mini shadow boxes filled with photos and small trinkets.

    kitchensqueen's tip on nailing them together to make a compartmentalized shelf is fabulous!
    I cover them in paper, sometimes decoupaged snippets with a theme or color, usually in one piece of favorite paper.
    You could also add a large monogram, fill with trinkets, and give as a gift.

    I've had this bookmarked for awhile. Crafter Elizabeth Dunn was on the Carol Duvall Show (HGTV) and did these cool decoupaged/stamped tea box containers. A take on that coupled with kitchensqueen's idea would be nice!

    Thanks for the ideas, you guys. I'm not sure which one I'll use. There are aLOT of these things so I'll probably get to do a couple.

    Thanks again!!!
