"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."

If you're stuck in a crochet rut, consider working on this Shooting Star Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern. This project shows that not all free crochet baby blanket patterns need to look the same or have the same features. What really sets this pattern apart from the pack is its shape. The circular design is unique and unexpected, but the overall look is totally traditional. Best of all, you only need one skein of each yarn color to complete this project, so there's no need to worry about breaking the bank. Make a star baby blanket your loved ones will treasure for years to come.

Oh my gosh, the starburst design afghan can be adapted to fit any room and any decor! Red, white, and blue for your patriotic fans tonal shades of mocha, taupe and cream for a more neutral decor or brights like a coral, turquoise, and mint for something really fun and summery! It really is an all purpose pattern. It will be fun to see it take shape as you go round and round. LOVE!

How pretty! I love the different shape and I imagine baby and mom will too! Wow! What's not to love about this one! You can change up the colors to match your own decor or tailor it to the nursery if you're gifting it. If you do it in the colors shown it's appropriate for both genders too! It's also designated as an easy pattern so you can always have one made up and on hand.
