"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."

  • Plaid® Select Strands™ 3413 Beads Glass 8mm Faceted Round Crystal
  • Silver head pins & eye pins
  • Needle nose pliers

Instructions:

  1. Create several bead charms before assembling your charm bracelet.  To create a bead charm, thread either a head pin or an eye pin with a combination of the round flat disc red beads, 8 mm green and/or 8mm crystal faceted beads.
     
  2. Once the beads are threaded onto the head or eye pin, make a loop using the round nose pliers and trim the excess pin using side cutters.  Create several bead charms.
     
  3. Next, lay your bracelet out before you so that you can design the placement of your Christmas charms and colored bead charms.  At this time, attach a few Christmas charms to the eye pin of a bead charm.
     
  4. Once you are happy with the design placement of your bead charms and Christmas charms, attach the charms to the bracelet chain links using jump rings.  Note:  To open and close a jump ring, hold one half of the jump ring (with the slit at the top) using a pair of chain nose pliers, hold the second half of the jump ring with the round nose pliers  And open the jump ring moving one hand toward you and the opposite hand away from you.  NEVER open a jump ring by pulling it part as this will weaken the support of the jump ring.  To close the jump ring, simply reverse the direction of the one hand towards you and the other hand away from you.

Notes:

  • If you have charms left over, create a pair of Holiday Glitz earrings too!
