"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."

Dangling Decoupage Earrings

By: Debbie Saenz for Plaid's Mod Podge

These beautiful earrings are simple and go with every outfit. Create your own jewelry and you'll love wearing them! Using Mod Podge products, the Dangling Decoupage Earrings are a great, easy craft to make. 

Dangling Decoupage Earrings

Materials:

  • Wood circles, 1" – 2
  • Mod Podge Gloss
  • Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
  • FolkArt Acrylic Paint – Van Dyke Brown
  • Scrapbook paper, 1 sheet – dark pink with dark brown design
  • Pair of earring wires - antique brass finish
  • Jump rings, 4 - antique brass finish
  • Head pins, 2
  • Eye loops, 2
  • Pink rhinestones, 2 small
  • Pink faceted glass beads, 2 small
  • Brown glass beads, 2
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Vintage Photo
  • Cosmetic wedge
  • Super glue
  • Jewelry pliers
  • Drill with small drill bit

Instructions:

  1. Drill two holes close to the edge on opposite sides of each wood circle.
     
  2. Paint edges of each wood circle with Van Dyke Brown. Allow to dry.
     
  3. Using scrapbook paper and circles as a template, cut out 4 circles, being careful to center the design on each.
     
  4. Adhere each circle cutout to each side of the wood circles with Mod Podge Gloss. Allow to dry.
     
  5. Use sandpaper to sand off any excess paper along edges until smooth. Sand downward in one direction to prevent the paper from lifting or tearing.
     
  6. Use the cosmetic wedge and dab onto the ink pad, then distress the edges of each wood circle until desired look is achieved. Seal the sides and back with a coat of Mod Podge Gloss. Allow to dry.
     
  7. Add rhinestones to center of each front side with a dab of super glue. Alow to dry.
     
  8. Give the front of each circle a coat of Mod Podge Dimensional Magic being careful not to fill the holes. Once dry (after at least 3 hours) give an additional coat of Dimensional Magic. Allow to dry.
     
  9. String a brown bead onto an eye loop, then make a plain loop attaching it to the earring wire. Repeat with the other earring.
     
  10. Use head pins and small glass beads to create 2 small bead charms. Make plain loops.
     
  11. Attach earring parts to wood circles using jump rings. Refer to photo.

Very cute- and if you don't want to drill a hole, you could always afix a glue on bail such as the ones used for scrabble pendants!
