"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."

"I love the look of daisies in old blue canning jars. It just says summertime. Its simple, beautiful and it makes me happy. I recently got the opportunity to work with a new product, etching creme from Etchall. While looking around for something to etch, I noticed the daisies sitting on the table. Hmmm Wouldnt they look great with a etched flower and a greeting? Its a super simple project. Takes around 30 minutes to complete."

Materials List

  • Etchall etching crme
  • Squeegee
  • Old Blue Mason Jar
  • Removable Painters Tape
  • Folk Art 30465 Peel and Stick Painting Stencil, Happy Words
  • DecoArt Patio Paint Self-Adhesive Stencils, 6 by 8-Inch, Funky Flowers

Instructions

  1. Clean jar to remove all dirt, fingerprints and oil. Dry with a coffee filter, paper towel, or lint-free cloth.

  2. Apply Stencils to jar. Burnish the edges of the stencil. Youll want to make sure no edges are coming up.

  3. Mask around the stencil with removable painters tape for extra surface protection.

  4. Apply a heavy coat of etchall etching crme to the masked area of the stencil.

  5. Leave etching crme on design for 15 minutes. After etching time has elapsed, use the squeegee to return the crme back into the original container for later re-use.

  6. Rinse etched surface with hot water to remove any remaining crme. Remember to keep crme away from porcelain sinks or ceramic tiles.

This truly is a beginners craft because even I can do it! It's very easy, just take your time and it comes out just beautifully. I have old drink glasses that are pretty in shape but aren't decorative. I am going to do up a set with my surname initial and have custom made glassware. Thank you!

Very pretty! I like that these are customizable, they'd be great to use for wedding centerpieces.
