A box made to ship things back and forth. To ship it you just have to flip the address plate over!

That is just fantastic. What a great idea for a box that will make many trips through the system.
I’m sure it will be a keepsake you both will treasure.

Very interesting idea and a beautiful piece. Doesn’t it cost quite a bit to ship, though, due to the wait of the box itself, regardless of what you are actually sending?

It was only $10 with the other box inside of it (the candy bar box was quite heavy). I built the box out of 1/2” aspen which is pretty light and played around on the usps website to find out some good dimensions. It only needs to go 8 hours away. It is pretty light for it’s size. I quite enjoyed building it, some projects you just get so into and passionate about, this was the first one for me.

Great idea! I hope you get to enjoy this for years to come (long after the long distance part goes away)
