Default Clear Box "Envelopes"

I recently got some clear A2 boxes for mailing cards from MFT's latest card kit. My question??? How do you mail with these?? Do you put a cover in front and behind the card? Wrap it with tissue paper or something???? I'm at a loss for what to do with this, but love the concept for mailing thicker and more detailed cards.

If you can put a label on it, you can mail it. So you could just stick it in the box, put a mailing label on, and send it that way. (People mail 2 liter bottles, I'm sure this is way easier.) If I didn't want the card (or its contents) visible, I might wrap it in tissue before putting it in the card box.

However, without seeing the dimensions for the box, I'm guessing it's too thick to be treated as an envelope of any kind, meaning you'll need to pay parcel rates, so starting around $3.

And if I have to pay the parcel rate anyway, then I'd probably put my card in the box and the box in a bubble envelope (you can get a two-pack at the Dollar Tree, or a huge box of 25 at Sam's Club for pretty cheap).

Thanks so much. Tissue paper is much lighter to wrap/protect the card. I've never mailed in a clear box before.
