"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:

  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Frame
  • Chalkboard square
  • Graph lined cutting mat
  • Tape
  • Silhouette cameo
  • Vinyl

Instructions:

  1. The first step is to find the paper that you will be using for your background.  Once you have your paper, cut it to fit the size frame you are using.  Once you cut your paper then you can decide where you will be placing the chalkboard square for the number.


     
  2. Use your graph lined cutting mat to line up where to place the tape so you can make sure that your lines are straight.
     
  3. Cover up the remaining glass so you don’t get the over-spray all over the glass.


     
  4. Use a silhouette cameo and vinyl to make your letters.

While I love the idea of this craft... I think the directions are as clear as mud. The material list is seriously lacking as well. I am going to try just copying the idea from the picture. You really need to learn to write better directions.

Hi Bev, Which part of the directions are confusing? If there a particular step I can help you with? All of our projects are submitted by crafters, so what may make sense to them might not make sense to everyone. Thanks!
