I bought this a couple of weeks ago on a whim and want to give it a shot sometime soon. Looking at the box it seems the sleeve is actually a sticker and it doesn't seem possible to just slide it off. Is there any way to open the box without tearing or removing the beautiful sleeve?

Use a knife/razor blade to cut through the sleeve/sticker along lid line edge. I would use a ruler/straight edge to guide you to ensure a nice and straight cut. Position the straight edge below the lid and slide it up to the lid's edge. This will eliminate any slack in the sticker, add some tension, and give you a nice narrow channel to follow and cut through.

Cut through one side is you want a hinged lid. Cut through both sides is you want to be able to remove the lid.

With my superior cutting skills (whistle) I knew I didn't need to use one, because I can follow the nice straight lid edge without a problem. Needless to say the box now has extra character with the visibly wavey cut through the sticker/sleeve. After learning my lesson I used my metal ruler to guide my cut through Leaving Earth's sticker/sleeve and made a nice straight cut that is barely noticeable and looks like it belongs.

Not a silly question at all, and thanks Chris for your advice.
