"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."

Easter Beaded Hair Clip

Materials (Available from Rings & Things):

  • 1 #30-123 1.9” rectangular alligator hair clip
  • 30-35 #20-228-042 Size 11 Toho® Japanese glass seed beads, crystal
  • 2 #23-618-211 9mm Czech glass ladybug beads, red
  • 30-35 #23-505-000 5.5mm glass flower spacer beads, assorted colors
  • 5ft #61-804-3214 Kreinik™ very fine #4 braid thread, blue zircon
  • Fabric
  • scissors
  • Jewel Bond adhesive
  • big-eye needle
  • super glue
     

Instructions:

  1. Cut a 1' long piece of Kreinik cord, thread your needle and tie a knot at one end.
     
  2. Cut a small piece of fabric, roughly 3½"x 1½".
     
  3. Center the alligator clip on the fabric, draw an outline on the cloth and fold edges along outline.
     
  4. Using the big-eye needle, sew from the bottom side to the top side of the fabric, stitching the folded sides together. NOTE: Instead of sewing, you can glue the folded sides using an adhesive like Jewel Bond.
     
  5. Attach flower and ladybug beads to the fabric, one at a time, sewing from underside of fabric to top. When using center-drilled beads (like the flower beads), first thread the bead, then add a seed bead and go back through the larger bead until the seed bead rests at the center of the flower bead. The seed bead functions as a flower piston.
     
  6. Repeat until desired effect is achieved or until entire fabric is covered with beads.
     
  7. Glue fabric to the alligator clip using super glue.

Nothing like flowers and ladybugs to remind use of spring and this beaded hair clip does just that. This clip will look so pretty in a little girls hair and can be a compliment to any outfit. I love the ladybugs and may even just make clip with those and then one with just flowers. For an older girl I will use a larger clip. Very good tutorial for a super hair accessory.

Excellent instructions and tip regarding using a seed bead as a center anchor, this does work and adds to the prettiness! I have used tiny buttons, and sometimes using a smaller button in the center of a larger one! Especially fun to select colors that go with several outfits, or use neutrals, like whites, silvers or golds to go,with anything! Great project!

beautiful. so FAB!
