"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."

The Burlap Show

Updated October 04, 2019

The episode of Cool2Craft TV focuses on a fabulous fabric you might not usually work with - burlap! Watch The Burlap Show from Cool2Craft and see how fun and easy it is to make no-sew fabric crafts using this durable material.

This episode features three cool craft ideas that you'll want to wear and display all year long. Start your burlap journal with a super trendy owl pillow. You don't need a sewing machine or even a needle and thread for this project. Use Aleene's Fabric Fusion Glue and get to work! Next, you'll learn how to create a Burlap Fringe Flower using a vintage technique Aleene debuted in the 60s! Add some flowers to your mantel or display them on your desk. Lastly, make a necklace from burlap - yes, you read that right! The burlap is used to create the beads for this necklace. The colors and design make it a chic yet afforable piece!

These are some super great ideas for making things with burlap. I love the fringed flower and I am thinking of making smaller one for hair bow or to put on a pocket book. I really love the necklace and earrings. I never knew you could make jewelry out of it. I love love love it. Super great ideas. Is there a video for the wreath?

I like working with burlap and these were new ideas. I want to try them all! I'll incorporate some colored burlap, too. Here's something else I did with burlap-a burlap wreath.
