"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."

Use paper marbling techniques and 3D self-adhesive foam squares to make the pansy on the card come to life. Great for birthdays and holidays, this beautiful handmade card design can be personalized with any message you'd like.  This pattern also comes with the pansy flower already colored and designed, so all you have to do is print out the image!  This is a fun and easy card for crafters of all skill levels, and is a great way to send a warm greeting to friends and family alike.

  3. Place the sheet of printer paper over that marbled paint and gently press down on the paper, so that the paint will be absorbed onto the paper.
  4. Lift the paper and place it on the table, with the painted side facing upwards.
  5. Use the old credit card to scrape off any excess paint and allow the paper to dry.

For Card

  1. Score the 8.2” x 6” scrapbook paper in half to create a card sized 4.1” x 6” ~ the glitter dots must be on the outside of the card.
  2. With the fold at the left, center and glue the Hessian on the front of the card.
  3. Center and glue the piece of marbled paper in place.
  4. Cut out one pansy and glue to the front of the card.
  5. Cut out a part of the second pansy, omitting the leave at the top, and use the 3D self-adhesive foam squares to affix the second pansy on top of the first.
