"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."

Embossed Foil Earrings

If you have some extra aluminum foil in your kitchen, you can make these amazing Embossed Foil Earrings from Tiffany Windsor! Aluminum foil craft ideas are great for getting rid of some extra supplies you already have. Use embossing techniques to create these adorable danglers.


 

Materials:

  • Aleene’s Tacky Double-Stick Sheets
  • Brown kraft paper (or brown bags)
  • Kitchen aluminum foil
  • Marking pen (or other smooth surface to rub the surface of the foil)
  • Embossing folder and die cut or embossing machine
  • Scissors
  • Small hole punch (for jump rings)
  • Jewelry findings – jump rings, fish hook earrings
  • Jewelry pliers

Instructions:

  1. Using the Aleene’s Tacky Double-Stick Sheets as a pattern for size, cut three pieces of kraft paper and two pieces of foil slightly larger than the Double-Stick Sheets.
     
  2. Use the Double-Stick Sheets to glue the three layers of kraft paper together.
     
  3. Glue one piece of foil to each side of the layered paper.
     
  4. Use the side of the pen to rub the entire surface of the foil so that all of the layers are firmly adhered right out to the edge. Using the Double-Stick Sheets as a straight edge, cut away excess foil and kraft paper.
     
  5. Run layered paper through embossing machine to create texture.
     
  6. Cut to desired shapes and sizes.
     
  7. Punch hole at top of each piece for jump ring.
     
  8. Insert jump ring and hang on fish hook earrings.

Sounds and looks fantastic! I don't have an embossing machine but I do have a few polymer clay pressure plates and a pasta machine - they should make great texture! Thanks for this! Can't wait to make these!
