"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

What a cute wreath. The directions are so easy and it doesn't take much at all to make. So it's very inexpensive and you can use materials at the dollar store. The only suggestion I would add is not to use it out doors because of its cardboard base. Here in Florida, humidity would kill it.

Great idea and so pretty! You could take this a step further and use pretty fabrics from your remnant stash and back them with stiff Pellon interfacing and also add so,e wire ribbon embellishments! Some metallics sprigs and twined coils would,look pretty here too, even glittered sprigs!

This wreath project seems to be very easy and my adding your own personal touches with the colors, or the size of the wreath and even the fullness of the leaves attached can change the design of the wreath. I would like to see more colorful leaves and perhaps add more twigs and vines. Using cardboard suggest this wreath will be used inside and add a pretty touch to a wall or door.
