"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."

This etched leaf candle jar are so pretty and would look amazing on a mantle,hall table,living room just about anywhere and it would make a great gift idea too. Looks like it is a simple technique to do and the etching can be used on other things too. Why not make your own homemade candle too for an added bonus. This would also make a great teacher gift or even Mother's Day gift.

Etched glass of any kind is always very pretty. It has a rich appearance to it and this is no exception. I just have to do it. I was raised in Vermont and now I'm in Florida so the leaves on this bring out my Fall feelings. I want to make a bunch of these. After reading thru the directions it should be easy enough. Thanks for sharing.
