"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."

I have seen this in a few places but never thought to make it myself. The lace around the candle adds such an elegant touch, and it can be used in pretty much any setting. Simply choose your lace to match the theme. I think I will do this to make up my centerpiece for Christmas this year.

This is really adorable. I love the Victorian style. And this is also perfect for Halloween parties. The lace gave it more style and class. Very elegant.

These are so pretty, I might be a bit blind but I can't seem to find it, can these be done on wax candles or does it have to battery run candles? I would really love to try these out but I don't want to burn the house down in the process- they would be lovely at my sister in laws birthday dinner that we are having in a few weeks!

Gosh these look beautiful!!! This is a great idea for a great Gatsby themed party if you wanna impress your guests. I admit its very hard to burn these candles but you always make more of them everytime. They are great gifts and a wonderful way to spice up your valentine evening.

What a cute idea. I have a few of the flame less candles mainly because of grand children and a dog. Don't want anyone getting hurt or knocking them over and causing a fire. But they are all plain. This will certainly dress them up. They will look great on the mantel next to old pictures in Victorian style frames.

I don't think I've seen candles prettier than these. I wouldn't want to light these because they are too beautiful to see go. Good thing they are so easy to make!
