    I'd think you'd be fine.. How many boxes are there in total?

    Go ahead and give it a try and see how it works out.. It may be fine.. or it may need changing simply because you want to do something differently.

    I was only planning on three boxes. I know they will probably only use one or two any way. if it looks like it needs changing or they need more I can add them later.
