"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."

  • STYROFOAM Brand Balls: 2" or 3" (select size according to preferred finished size; models used 2" and 3" balls)

  2. Cut chenille stems to varying lengths according to your design; bend and form pipe cleaners to create snowflake designs. Models used 3" - 4" stems. The stems on the golden snowflake were curved in half to form a loop. For the silver snowflake, a 2" chenille stem was folded in half and twisted around a 4" stem, 1" from the end.
  3. The chenille stems are attached to the ball using chenille "staples". Form 3/4" pieces of chenille stems into a u-shape. Place end of chenille stem on ball, place chenille staple over stem, and insert chenille staple into ball.
  4. To hang, bend chenille stem to form a hook' glue and insert end into ball.
