"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."

 Victorian Fabric Greeting Card

Materials:

  • 2 5x8" pieces of dyed fabric
  • 2 5x8" pieces of flannel
  • Modge Podge
  • Rose or flower, cut from fabric
  • Batting
  • Lace trim
  • Binding
  • Printable Fabric
  • Distress Spray
  • Sewing pins

Instructions:

  1. Start with some dyed fabric and cut it into two 5 x 8 pieces, making the front and back of the card. For batting, use flannel--also cut 5 x 8.

  3. Now it’s time to decorate the two sides of the card. Cut a couple roses from another fabric (or print roses on printable fabric), adding batting if desired.  Do some free motion stitching to bind the rose to the batting. Sew or glue to card.
     
  4. Add lace to edges of card. 
     
  5. Print name and message on fabric and cut and sew (or glue) to the card.

  6. Zig zag stitch around the complete outside of the sides of the card. To put them together, I layer wrong sides together, straight stitch around the complete card and add lace. You can also sew a straight stitch down the center of the card, making it easier to fold.
     
  7. Add several drops to water to Distress Ink and spray on the lace. We used deli tissue to prevent ink from spraying over the complete card.

  8. And here is the finished card.
