"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."

Asian Inspired Embossing Board Card

By: Crafter's Companion

This Eastern Promise Embossing Board has the perfect flair for a a unique card or theme party invitation. The decorative fans make give this card a hand-made touch that will impress all of your friends!

 

Materials:

  • Eastern Promise Embossing Board
  • 1 Sheet Of Letter Size Card (Main Body Of Card)
  • Several Pieces Of Scrap Card Or Paper
  • 6mm Embossing Tool
  • Top Score Scoreboard (And Scorer)
  • Drier Cloth Or Candle
  • Low Tack Tape
  • Foam Pads
  • Adhesive
  • Embellishments
  • Scissors

 

Step 1

Score and fold the main sheet of cardstock in half using the Top Score Multiboard. Place this face down on the embossing
board and rub the drier cloth onto the back of the card (the wrong side of the card where you are going to emboss). Lay the
card onto the board with the bottom right corner butted up to the end pegs.

 

Step 2

As we are going to emboss the Bamboo canes as a background, we need to centralise the design in the centre of the card so we need to slide the cardstock across the board and hold in place with some low tack tape as shown here.

 

Step 3

Locate the embossing tool in the first leading channel at the bottom of the board. With a firm pressure push the tool up the
channel until you feel some resistance. Feel your way with the embossing tool until you find the direction the design is going
in. If you find this difficult it may help to emboss the design onto paper first and keep it at the side of you for a reference. Emboss all 3 Bamboo canes in this way.

 

Step 4

Turn the board over and place a piece of the scrap cardstock up to the pegs along the bottom and the side and hold in place
with low tack tape. Wipe the card with the drier cloth again and emboss both of the fan designs. Repeat this on pieces of scrap design paper to enhance the design. Carefully cut around the outside of the embossed designs and stick the pieces of
design paper to the fan. Here we have 3 different fans created in this way.

 

Step 5

Mount the fans onto foam squares and stick to the main card in different directions trying not to completely cover the Bamboo embossing you did earlier.

Tip: If you have any fine line border stickers or a gold pen and faux gems you can add to the embellishment of the fans and make them look very authentic. Just add a sentiment and an insert and you have a beautiful card.
