"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."

Japanese Fan Birthday Card

By: Janet Genser for Posh Impressions

Here is a birthday card from Posh Impressions with a serenely elegant design. A Japanese-inspired design is stamped on a fan-shaped card.

Japanese Fan Birthday Card

Materials:

  • Fan-shaped cardstock by Stampendous
  • Crane stamp from the Posh EZMount Japan set
  • Bamboo Branch stamp from Penny Black
  • Crack & Peel sticker paper
  • Memories black dye ink
  • Sparkling H2Os in colours of your choice
  • Sakura white gel pen
  • Coordinating ribbon of your choice

Steps:

  1. Purchase fan cardstock or make your own from stock that has a subdued background.
     
  2. Ink Bamboo Branch with Memories black ink and stamp once or twice on scrap paper to remove some of the ink, and then stamp on cardstock once or twice. Repeat as many times as you wish.
     
  3. Ink Crane stamp with Memories black ink and stamp on opaque Crack & Peel sticker paper. Colour in the selected areas with the Sparkling H2Os and go over the white dots on the crane with the Sakura white gel pen to give the dots some dimension.
     
  4. When the paint and the gel are dry, cut the crane image out as close to the outline as possible.
     
  5. Decide where on the fan you want to place the crane then remove the backing from the image and affix to the cardstock.
     
  6. Write or print your sentiment above the slots in the fan.
     
  7. Lastly, cut a length of coordinating ribbon and weave it through the slots and glue down the tail in a nice manner. Put some clear tape on the back of the ribbon to keep it from moving in the slots.
