Cardboard Box/Boxes (please read the rules)

Challenge #6 in the Art of the Mundane series. Hosted by Slynky.
Challenge has finished
Let's see if we can make boxes interesting. It can be a single box, stacked boxes, crumpled boxes, colored boxes, or plain boxes but it must be thick paper or cardboard. NOT ALLOWED: Plastic boxes, wooden boxes, glass boxes, metal boxes...well, you understand--ONLY stiff paper and cardboard boxes. Also, the focus/subject of the photo must be the box/boxes. If my eyes find other parts of the photo more interesting, then I will disqualify it. For example, don't put a beautiful female beside a box, or photograph a box in front of the Taj Mahal. Ideally, the winning entry will not depend on how interesting the writing or illustration is on the box(es) but how well the photograph makes the boxes interesting in the shot.

Interior of cupboard storing paper, inks et cetera. The boxes tell a tale! Down below are slide boxes and mounts that I kept "just in case". I bet there are lots such cupboards.
