After reading some of the reviews, I was concerned. I shouldn't have been! The quality of this box is NOT like a shoebox. The box is sturdy, looks beautiful, and is the perfect size for baptism memorabilia, in my opinion. My only complaint: I wanted to include our son's nickname, and had enough letters to do so when I ordered. Two days later, I recieved a phone call telling me that 4 names were not allowed (I wonder how they do hyphenated last names?) and quotation marks (around the nickname) could not be included. This was disappointing, but the box is still sturdy and beautiful!
