"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."

Job Well Done

If you're a teacher this is a great craft to make your students. Everytime they do a good job on something you can give them a student star of the week ribbon. They will be so proud to show their parents.

Materials:

  • Americana Gloss Enamels
    • DAG01 - White
    • DAG36 - True Blue
    • DAG67 - Black
    • DAG227 - Bright Yellow
    • DAG265 - Tuscan Red
  • Americana Brushes
    • DBL1000-B - Liner #0
    • DBR2004-B - Round #4
    • DBF3012-B - Shader #12
  • Three 18" lengths of coordinating ribbons 1/2" - 5/8"
  • Small wood tag: Lara's Crafts #PT1001
  • Wooden star: Provo Craft #13-1664
  • Foam plate
  • Lo-temp glue gun and glue sticks
  • Flame lighter
  • Pin back

 

Steps:

  1. Use round brush and Bright Yellow to paint star; let dry.
     
  2. Use shader brush and True Blue to paint wood tag; let dry.
     
  3. Referring to photo for placement, glue star to tag.
     
  4. Use liner brush and White to paint words "star student" on True Blue tag; let dry.
     
  5. Use liner brush and Black to paint words "of the week" on star.
     
  6. Use end of paintbrush dipped in Tuscan Red to dot on tips of star; let dry.
     
  7. Center and layer ribbons with thinnest on top and widest on bottom; glue together at center between layers.
     
  8. Alternate length of ribbons and seal ends of ribbon to prevent fraying by carefully singeing ends with lighter.
     
  9. Fold ribbons in half and overlap just below loop at centers (refer to photo for placement). Glue together between overlap to hold in place. Glue top of ribbon at overlap to back of wood tag.
     
  10. Glue pin back to back of ribbon overlap.
