I found a several wonderful solutions to the lack of box with the puzzles. Reply

    Michaels (a craft store chain) sells cute wooden boxes with latches that have a frame on top for $2.99.
    I painted it in coordinating colors and put the image of the puzzle in the frame.

    They have several different styles available.

    Or...online did not show the heart, but they do have a heart shaped one.

    They also white boxes (that are the same size as a standard puzzle box) for $.99. you can print out the image on sticker paper and place on the top of the box. I could not find an online image


    They also sell the cutest plastic iridescent round ornaments that open. I than took the print out of the image and had it laminated and attached it with a ribbon. I will post an image later.

    They also have the cutest plastic boxes, plastic "paint" cans, tins, etc.

    I went the very cheap route and purchased 8x10 clear plastic bags. This works great for me because the puzzles fit perfectly inside w/ the chipboard backing that comes with them. When I squeeze the air out, they retain their rigidity and I can display them for sale with the image intact. Consequently, the 4x6 bags seem to fit the pieces when the puzzle is disassembled.

    Of course, I am dealing in bulk quantities, and it might be harder to find just a couple bags at these particular sizes. However, for 100 bags at both sizes it only cost about $5.

    I also considered the sliding jewelry boxes, which you can also find as medical supply boxes, but my concern about being able to view the product was an issue.

    I love the Michaels idea! I've thought about doing puzzles as cute Christmas gifts but I've been wondering what I'd do about the lack of a box. That idea sounds great! I'll have to head over to my local Michaels and make sure I can find something like that before I order some, just in case. Thanks for sharing! =)

    I bet the jewelry bags would also work great.

    The puzzle pieces look thin. Wondering how durable they are.

    They aren't super flimsy, but I would NOT call them rugged. I don't know how much that helps!

    I got your PM, Sherri, and sent you a message back. ;)
