"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."

  3. Use end of brush handle dipped in Bright Blue to paint oval dots for eyes.

Am making "cookies in a jar" as neighbor gifts. the lid with this idea would be good. Just glue the ribbon around the outside edge of the lid top and glue an adhesive magnet to the back so it can go on the fridge after using the cookie recipe.

How about using a white paper plate and cutting out construction paper eyes, nose etc and glueing them on then add the cloth scarf? I work with nursing home patients and need easy items for them to do.

Before I knew the canning jar lid as a snowman was a popular craft , I took it one step further. I added two tiny gliterry pompoms as earmuffs and attached a wire underneath to represent that it was part of the wintery headgear.

Not my favorite but looks like a good kids craft they could put their picture in it too.

This is a really cute craft. You could make several and hand them on the tree. You could also recycle metal juice lids to create this as well.

This is really cute! TFS

I think this project would make a nice ornament to put on your tree , I will give this a try , due to I am always looking for something different to put on my small tree, Thanks favecraft.
