"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."

Create flower embellishments for cards using Bernat Maker Home Decor Yarn. This is a lovely yarn craft that is simple and fun to make. Yarn isn't often mixed with paper crafts, but the marriage of the two materials is lovely in this project. If you're looking for a simple technique to make an embellishment that will become a staple in your crafting, this is a great project to try. Add yarn flowers to all of your paper crafts, be they on cards, scrapbook layouts, planners, and more. Plus, you'll get a lot of these flowers out of just one skein of yarn!

Punch a circle from card stock apply a generous amount of Mod Podge around the edge of the cardstock. Folding the 3-inch strips in half, attach to the card stock to create petals of the flower.

I can't resist a good flower craft, not if it's been written this well. I just love when he author takes their time to include the step by step pictures on how they made their crafts, it encourages you to fill throughout a project and not leave it hanging. Please include more crafts like these in the website.
