"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."

By: Martha Stewart Crafts

This spring, make someone a 3D Flower Card just to say "I'm thinking of you!" These handmade cards ideas from Martha Stewart will help you create a 3-dimensional clay flower card for someone special.

3D Flower Card

Materials:

  • Flower Garden Mold & Clay Gift Pack
  • Crafter's Clay Floral Crafting Kit
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Bone Folder

  • Dual Temperature Setting Glue Gun
  • Cardstock: green and off white

Instructions:

  1. Refer to color chart in Basic Color Set to mix desired colors for the flowers and leaves.
     
  2. Pull the clay a few times until blended, then roll into a smooth ball.
     
  3. Press into molds. Make one of each size flower in different colors as shown.
     
  4. If necessary, use detailing tool to scrape excess from back of mold.

Working with Crafter’s Clay

  • Prevent clay from drying out while you work by placing clay on a damp paper towel and covering with another damp paper towel. When finished, store in an airtight plastic bag with a damp paper towel.
  • Mix colors by pulling, like taffy. When mixing multiple colors into white, mix the colors together first, then mix the blended color into the white just until the color is even throughout.
  • Clay may be shaped and molded several times, but will dry out if over-worked.
  • Wash your hands before handling a different color to keep clay colors pure.
  • Allow molded embellishments to dry before gluing clay to project. Items will dry within 24 hours, but may be handled sooner if done with care.

Molding Tips

  • Always press a smooth surface into the mold. Any crease in the clay will appear on the final molded object.
  • Push clay in from the outer edge of the mold for a clean finish.
  • After unmolding, use detailing tool to smooth any rough edges

I'd love to make this 3D flower card for my grandma.

This clay flower design is really pretty and a work of art! I could see mixing two similar shades of clay and leaving it slightly marbelized for a different look. Then glazing it with a tiny touch of glitter here and there for added sparkle. Thanks for the great instructions!
