"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."

Holographic Ribbon Headband

By: Kreinik

Add a bit of sparkle to a store-bought headband with holographic ribbon. You can weave the holographic ribbon through an open design or wrap the ribbon around the headband.

Holographic Ribbon Headband
 

Materials:

  • headband — Dollar stores, Walmart, Target etc are great places to pick up inexpensive headbands. Look for plain ones, or ones with ribbons already attached (specifically open weave ribbons like the one in our photo).
  • Kreinik 1/8" Ribbon in holographic colors. We used 001L Solar Silver.
  • Large-eye needle

Instructions:

This headband came from a discount store with the green ribbon already attached. We simply threaded our needle with the 1/8" Ribbon, and tied one end into a knot. Starting at one end, work that knot into the backside of the green ribbon, bring your needle up to the top, and begin weaving it in and out of the suede ribbon. End by securing your thread and tucking the end under the green ribbon.

Want to color coordinate? Pick from the 16 new holographic Kreinik ribbon colors, or any of the 200+ other metallic ribbon colors from Kreinik. Just imagine: an embellished, embroidered headband to match any outfit or costume.

How Treasure Tape™ may help:

  1. Kreinik Treasure Tape (double-sided tape) is your best friend in many craft projects. Use it here to wrap extra ribbon on the ends to hide the pointed ends (raw edges) of your headband embellishment.
  2. If you buy a plain plastic headband and embroider a strip of ribbon or fabric, the easiest way to secure that embellished fabric to the headband is with Treasure Tape. Buy 1/4" or 1/2" tape to match the thickness of your headband.
