"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."

Yummy Easter Blooms

By: Lisa from a Spoonful of Sugar

Get crafty using something edible for this Easter holiday. Use this craft idea from A Spoonful of Sugar as your centerpiece for your Easter brunch. This is a great tutorial to put together.

Materials:

  • Flower pot (we got ours from Ikea)
  • Floristry foam
  • Green floristry tape
  • Green floristry wire
  • Clear cellophane
  • Green tissue paper
  • Easter eggs - small and medium
  • Long nose pliers

Steps:

  1. For the small buds, we cut a piece of clear cellophane into 5 inch square and folded it into four quarters. We inserted the small egg into the folded cellophane and scrunched up the cellophane around it. (By folding the cellophane first, it makes a little pointy top so the egg looks more like a little rose bud).

     
     
  2. We wrapped some wire around the cellophane to secure, and then covered the top of the wire with floristy tape.


     
  3. For the larger eggs we used a piece of cellophane cut into 8 inch square, and used the same technique. We then cut a piece of florist foam to fit the flower pot, and inserted the stems into the foam. We then cut pieces of green tissue paper approx 6 inch square. We grabbed the middle of the tissue paper and scrunched it slightly, and then wrapped a length of wire around it. We poked these into the foam to hide all the flower stems.

Want to do something a little different for Easter this year then make these yummy Easter blooms on your table as a pretty table centerpiece or your office desk if you can keep people from eating the before Easter if using real candy. If you just want it as a decoration than pick up some plastic eggs at the dollar store. I love how they really look like flowers but will not wilt. This can be really fun to do and I know you will get so many people asking where you got it from. Simple, quick and looks great.
