"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."

Primary TechniquePaper Crafts

Beginner

SeasonWinter

Materials:

  • 1 flat wreath base
  • 1 bottle of Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue
  • Assorted wrapping paper (I used all metallics)
  • Pencil
  • Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue Stick
  • Assorted gems and/or a bow

Instructions:

  1. Cut your paper into 4×4″ squares. It’s ok if they aren’t perfect, it will give more texture to the finished look.
     
  2. Take one piece and at the diagonal corner, roll it around the pencil. Add a generous amount of glue stick to the corner to seal the end down. Slide it off the pencil.


     
  3. Sort them by color. Next, pick up a handful, tap them so they are even and cut off the ends so one side is flat and the other is spiky.
     
  4. Apply a generous amount of Tacky Glue to the base, one section at a time. Set the rolls on the glue. Space them evenly and keep going all the way around.


     
  5. Let this dry and then add a second layer of rolls in between each of the first layer so it hides the base. If you want, you can cut the pieces shorter for the second row.

Yes, me, too! I always have odds and ends of wrapping paper left over and I save the good pieces from gifts I unwrap, too, so I have a stash to work with. It's almost Christmas, but I still have time to do this!

I agree with both mulberrygalprincess s and Marilyn B. I always have so much and I hate to store it for next year and this is a great way to make something beautiful and very creative for next year. I have everything I need too. I will also be making some for gifts too. And if you do not have any leftover paper now is the best time to buy it cheap.

I was thinking at first the same as the previous poster, but then I was thinking of all the tiny scraps of wrapping paper I have sentimentally saved from Christmases of long ago....and what a creative way of savory get those memories and have them on display! This could become a momento for years to come, especially with papers from long ago! You could also do this with greeting card tops as well if they aren't too thick. Super creative idea, thanks for sharing!

I almost pass do his one bye because it looked complicated and a lot of work. Then I read thru the instructions and I said, I can do this. I have a lot f left over wrapping paper in the closet. Pieces that are just the right size to cut. I have the glue and I can cut a piece of thick cardboard for the base. It won't cost me a penny. Now this is one craft project I will love doing.
