Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect little treasure box I got these for my daughters birthday party to act as party bags. She had a Neverland theme so we used some hobby craft acrylic spray paint to make them into little gold treasure chests. We then filled them with marbles, gems, treasure maps, ‘pixie dust’, little telescope etc so the kids had something then could use for imaginative play st home. We found these boxes to be really sturdy and a generous capacity for a small box. The kids loved them and they helped us add a personal touch to her party.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous little chest, children love Minecraft This painted relatively easily, one of the three warped slightly so the lid doesn't close completely, for the price though, I'd happily buy 10 more. My 6 year old son and my autistic 12 year old really engaged with these and we used a variety of medias with huge success We've since purchased other similar items and are experimenting with different paints. A lovely collection in store. Happy children :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Treasure Chest - very good I teach adults with special needs and some would have found difficulty with covering the box with paper, so we painted them and will decorate with stick on 'jewels'. Staff member said we wouldn't need to coat with PVA and she was right! One coat of acrylics gave good coverage, but we will add a 2nd for even better effect. The box is strong, as is the lid, which is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bargain Though this was a small item of purchase, it was a great one. I was able to turn it into a lovely shabby chic trinket box using old textiles, buttons and a hot glue gun. I love that you can buy simple and reasonably priced items and make them into your own crafts with a good quality finish. I will be buying more items like this so that I can make gifts for people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fab A great pre-made purchase to mache. I decorated this with the Decopatch Blue Vintage Floral Paper to use as a gift box for a special friend's 50th birthday. (She was totally enamored of the box!) Something so plain and simple, you really can make absolutely gorgeous! The design is good as the lid opens and closes, even still with mache.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great little box just waiting to be decorated Bought this box as my son is minecraft mad. Was able to customise it with no trouble at all. Great for boys and girls and men and women. So easy to go from a pirate chest to a princess's treasure chest. Can be customised to ladies trinkets or for a man to hold change or cufflinks. All it needs is imagination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous I've bought several of these treasure chest and they are good value for money. I've painted some brown and added strap detailing to add to the treasure chest effect - which the kids loved having filled with mini eggs for Easter. Others I've covered with different decopatch papers. Everybody has loved them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product to keep kids entertained My boys loved decorating their little chests. They spent ages deciding how to decorate them as there are so many different options you can do with this chest. My eldest son decided to draw pictures on the front and sides then paint the rest and my youngest son decided to decorate his with découpage paper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Christmas presents I decorated these with drawings of holly and red Pom Pom balls and filled them with truffles as Christmas presents. They were a little smaller than I would have liked and perhaps a little scuffed around the edges but perfect if the were to be covered in paper. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a party! The treasure chests were a bargain at 80p each bulk buy. They are for my daughter's 8th party as one of the activities.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lovely blank canvas for the imagination I love these pieces they are great for the novice people like myself who love art but aren't particularly artistic. I like taking ideas from one thing I.e Harry Potter and using pieces like the treasure chest to make my own pieces. These are very affordable pieces and are good value

Rated 5 out of 5 by from painted up really well I saw this in store and thought it would make a really cool treasure chest to put a gift in; it worked great. I was worried that the paint would go on strange and the texture would be a problem, but it worked great and would definitely recommend :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing price! Versatile product. I bought 60 (!) of these for a summer school I was helping to run. We used them as time capsules for the children to leave letters in. They were a great price and we’re perfect for painting on. I’ll be using them again for all sorts of crafts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well constructed and tough enough for little hands These are perfect for so many projects. Our Sunday School children were delighted with their individual results after sticking 'jewels' on their gold sprayed treasure chests. They are strongly made and ideal for enthusiastic little hands!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice treasure chests My daughter (7) used these to make presents for her friends. They were covered in paint, varnish and had some jewels glued on and they looked great. They don't close all that well but all in all we were very happy with the results.
