"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."

Stack Of Gifts Door Hanger

By: Holli Long for Plaid's Mod Podge

This Stack Of Gifts Door Hanger from Plaid, used for a door or as a wall hanging, makes for one of the more unique decoupage ideas for homemade Christmas crafts. Using nontraditional holiday colors, brighten your home with Christmas house crafts like this one.

Stack Of Gifts Door Hanger

Materials:

  • Wood package shapes, 3 (you can use plaques also)
  • Wood shapes – reccommend a stocking, a tree and an ornament
  • FolkArt Acrylic Paint – Bright Baby Pink, Sky Blue, Light Blue, Soft Apple
  • Mod Podge Matte
  • Scrapbook paper, 3 sheets – holiday prints
  • Buttons, assorted – recommend Blumenthal Lansing
  • Candle or small piece of wax
  • Drill
  • Ribbon of your choice, 3 feet

Instructions:

  1. Prepare surfaces.
     
  2. Measure the square part of your package shapes and use these measurements to cut out the scrapbook paper. You should have three sheets – set them aside.
     
  3. Paint one of the packages Sky Blue, one Bright Baby Pink and the other Soft Apple. Allow to dry.
     
  4. While the package shapes are drying, paint your wood ornament shapes. See the photo for reference.
     
  5. Take the package shapes and distress the bows. To do this, rub the candle or wax pieces on top of the bow part of each package. Rub the candle on the edges and on top of the bow.
     
  6. Paint each bow with a different color than you did the first time. I painted the Sky Blue bow with Bright Baby Pink, the Soft Apple bow with Sky Blue and the Bright Baby Pink bow with Soft Apple. Allow to dry.
     
  7. When the paint is completely dry on the bows, you will use the sandpaper to distress them. Lightly sand the bows in the areas where you painted the wax, and the paint on top of the wax will rub away quickly. You’ll see the first color you painted come through. Sand less for subtle distressing and more for obvious distressing. Be careful not to sand too much – you don’t want the wood to show through.
     
  8. Use Mod Podge to adhere the square sheets of scrapbook paper you set aside to the main parts of the packages. Smooth thoroughly. Allow to dry for 15 – 20 minutes.
     
  9. Mod Podge the top of the scrapbook paper to seal. Allow to dry.
     
  10. At this time you’ll want to use your drill to create holes for the hangers as shown in the photo. I drilled one hole on each corner of each package.
     
  11. Use craft glue to glue the wooden shapes down, one to each center of each package.
     
  12. Mod Podge again – this time Mod Podge the entire front and back of the package shapes, including the wooden shapes on top. This seals the project.
     
  13. Glue buttons down on each shape and on the package bows as shown.
     
  14. Finish the project by tying the ribbon through each hole and attaching the packages as shown. Allow to dry for 24 hours before hanging.
