URGH!!! Dang Boxes are nowhere to be found!

I'm having trouble finding paper mache card boxes large enough to make a three-tier card box. I want it to be large and in charge so I'm hoping for the base to 10" - 14" and the top to be no smaller than 6".

I've logically checked craft stores, but to no avail. I've cheeked online but can't find any Canadian retailers and with $40 shipping shipping from the states, I might as well buy a pre-made card box!

Any information leading to the whereabouts of these boxes will lead to a gigantic thank you!

    I used the "Solutions" store for my boxes!

    What about somewhere like Home Sense to Winners?  They usually have boxes of different sizes.  You might have to DIY them to match the colours you'd like.

    OOOOOH I love Solutions! Good idea!

    Winners and Home Sense also!

    I am definitely going to DIY them. I want damask :)

    Thanks ladies!

    I went to Homesense and found a perfect black box that was supposed to be used to store files.  I added a pretty ribbon and that's it.  It was under 20$.  Of course, my colors are black and white and I like pretty simple things.

    I got my boxes from the Michael's at Dixie Outlet mall!
    I think the total of the boxes was no more than 20 bucks

    Go to Creative Bag....that store has all raw materials you will need and at wholesaler prices.  You do not need a business licence to get in
