DALLAS, TX - Who doesn’t love Girl Scout cookies? Apparently millions of us do!

According abcsmartcookies.com, Girl Scouts sell about 200-million packages of cookies every year.

Hmmm…ever wonder what they do with all those boxes? Well, wonder no more.

Welcome to the 11th Annual Cookie Box Creations.

“This is an opportunity for girls to explore all things science, technology, engineering and math,"Amanda Duquette told NewsFix. She's the Vice President of Marketing for Girl Scouts, Northeast Texas. "So, we team up girls from across Northeast Texas; they get a theme. This year, it was The Great Outdoors. and they built amazing structures out of cookie boxes.”

Who knew the boxes could contain more than just delicious treats?

It's obvious the girls put in some long hours, thinking out of the box for their projects.

"We got the experience of how it would feel to kayak and canoe so that’s how we got our theme of building the boats and that’s how our girls over there are holding them,” Girl Scout Madelyn On said of her display.

"Our group got assigned scuba diving; so we thought it would be cool if we got a scuba diver and there’s fish all around her and there’s a bunch of coral around so it’s more like 3D and there’s everything around it," Lindsey Crews explained of her group's project.

Their girls' exhibits are on display for all to see at the Dallas Galleria through April third. But there are some serious bragging rights on the line.

People are encouraged to vote on their fave design. Judging will take place starting Monday, March 14th. A People’s Choice Award will be announced on April Third.

Hey, all the displays all look like winners to us; cookies for everyone!
