It took me awhile to figure out how to get the ribbon in like they do on the website. (Just in case you need it - they have directions on their website, but none come with the boxes themselves.) Just to figure out that they wont! I finally got it! Only after getting the two storage containers together, getting the ribbon loaded and setting on my desk to notice that they dont even keep their shape well.
In my opion, you get what you pay for. I think that jars would be better at this point.
