"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."

Materials List

  • FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Sheets: (3) 1”x12”x12”
  • (1 yd) Blue Velvet Fabric
  • Silver/White Metallic Yarn
  • 1” Sequin Pins
  • Low-Temp Glue Gun
  • Scissors
  • Serrated Knife
  • Black Marker
  • Ruler

Project Instructions

  1. Measure 3-½” in from each corner of the foam sheets and make a mark. Draw a line across each corner at the marks. Use the serrated knife to cut the corners off evenly

  2. Cut three 16” squares of velvet fabric. Lay the fabric face side down and lay the foam in the center. Pull the edges of the fabric up over the foam and glue in place at the back. Fold the corners neatly for a clean look. For a uniform look be sure that the nap of the velvet runs the same direction across all three panels

  3. Begin pushing the pins into the foam as indicated on the templates. Use a ruler as a guide to keep the pins running straight and evenly spaced.

  4. Tie the end of the yarn to a center pin. Wrap the yarn around each pin from one to the next up the row of pins. Follow the template as indicated to create the pattern. When you reach the end pin, turn back and follow the pins back down the row. Wrap the yarn around the center pin at the next row and wrap the yarn around the pins to the end and back. Repeat to string all three panels.

This is a pretty and very unique looking project and would be a great way to teach directions to older kids! Sparkle it up by adding glitter to metalic string! Lovely to give as a gift, and if you are very arty you could even create your own snowflake template designs! You could also change up the shape of the base background for so,e added variety! Very creative project idea!
