"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."

Artistic Tile Coasters and Magnets

By: Ink Blots and Polka Dots

Hand made tile coasters are a great way to personalize your home. These Artistic Tile Coasters and Magnets are simple to make when you follow this tile coasters tutorial. All you need is some cheap back splash tile, stamps and a little Mod Podge.

Artistic Tile Coasters and Magnets


  • 1 sheet of backsplash tile
  • Rubber stamps
  • Black stamping ink
  • Mod Podge (in Satin finish)
  • Super glue
  • Strong magnets
  • Cork protectors or felt pads
  • Rafia string


  1. Purchase a sheet of backsplash from your local hardware store.  The ones with different sized tiles are great because they let you create multiple coaster and magnet sets of varying sizes.

  2. Stamp each tile using black stamping ink and your favorite rubber stamps.

  3. Allow the ink to completely dry.
  4. Apply two coats of Mod Podge (in Satin finish) to seal them.
  5. Once the Mod Podge is dry, peel off the cardboard and the webbing underneath each tile.
  6. Using super glue, attach the magnets to the bottom of the smaller tiles and attach either cork protectors or felt pads to the bottom of the larger tiles.

  7. Tie each coaster set together using the Rafia string.


  1. Know your stamps:  Some rubber stamps have weak spots, where no matter how hard you push down, the stamp still doesn't show up completely.  Test your stamps on paper before applying to the tiles.  If you don't like the way it stamps on paper, you won't like the way it comes out on the tile.

  2. Match your stamp to the tile:  Make sure you choose the correct size stamp for where you are stamping.  Some tiles may have chunks missing, and if you use a big stamp that covers most of the tile, the design might call more attention to the tile's imperfections than you would like.  You can also try to position your stamps so that they don't cover imperfections in the tile.
