4 ways to use BJÖRNARP display box

A clear acrylic display box is like a mini museum for prized possessions. With these ideas, a display box can also help you relax a little, save money, treat yourself and relive memories.

1. Make an itty bitty beach retreat and drift away anytime. Layer in some sand. Add in small beachy things like a doll’s easy chair, a drink umbrella and a pool (aka baking cup). The lid keeps sand in when you’re not playing.

2. Encourage yourself to meet a savings goal. See what you’re saving up for and how much you have (or haven’t) collected. Once you’ve met your goal, you can swap the photo and start over.

3. Create a candy dispenser by filling the box with your favourite wrapped sweets. (It’s easiest to fill when it’s on its feet.) Slide up the front protector and grab a goody—or catch a few if they come sliding out!

4. Spotlight a memorable occasion with a shadow box. Arrange mementoes, photos, invites, etc. from a special event like a wedding, party or vacation. When everything’s in the display box, you can reminisce and keep it all protected.

We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
