easy shipping container

Posted in Custom Workstation

If you know anyone who drinks crystal lite or the generic brand and gets the small tubs in the tubes here's an idea. Those tubes are about the right size for a 6" figure and requires very little packing material. Just slap some wrapping on it and you should be able to treat it like a normal shipping tube.

I don't use it any more, just the empty bottles, its cheaper to use our tap water with crystal lite in it. Just need some figures to ship lol.

I tend to cut up cereal or cracker boxes, basically whatever I can make fit to whatever I'm shipping. Since my family buys a lot of bottled water by the small palletful, I use those little cardboard trays to construct elaborate lightweight but strong loose figure shippers. A pair of scissors and 4 pieces of packing tape turn it into a superman level of indestructiblity (although its weaknesses are water and magic).

If you wrap it in paper they shouldn't care, though it might be to small for their label to fit well.

I was thinking about that, like even toilet paper tubes would work, But I'm not sure if the USPS will accept it
