"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."

  • Two 4" x 6" Treasure Tape sheets
  • Kreinik #12 Braid 029, 1223, 015
  • Kreinik 1/16" Ribbon 024

Instructions:

  1. Using the Spectrum stamp pad, stamp "Let's Party", cakes, presents, and the party hats on the white cardstock.
     
  2. Peel back the white liner and lay the 4" x 6" Treasure Tape sheet on the white cardstock you just decorated.
     
  3. Cut the white taped cardstock with your scissors in a slightly curved pattern, to be about 1/4 to 1/2 inch smaller than your card front.
     
  4. Peel off the red liner and begin decorating your rubber-stamped areas by laying the flat-backed cabochons on the hats, cake and present images.
     
  5. Using the various colors of Braid, lay the thread on the images as if to replicate bows, pom-poms etc. Use our photo as a guide.
     
  6. Lay the 1/16" Ribbon all around the edge of the white cardstock.
     
  7. When thread decorating is complete, lay your card in the shallow pan and cover all remaining sticky areas with the Diamond Beadlets.
