Decorative Containers

Decorative containers, although aesthetically pleasing, are usually not reusable (as opposed to Ornamental Containers) because they are not sturdy enough and often get torn or damaged upon opening. Fabric-covered or embossed cardboard boxes for chocolates (e.g., for Valentine's Day) are normally considered decorative container. There are no special exemptions for measuring the ADS of decorative containers.

This heart-shaped Valentine's Day container is an example of a decorative container.
