"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."

  2. Paint the chick's body with bright pink craft paint.
     
  3. Cut a circle (approx 2.5") from green cardstock for the chick's head.
     
  4. Draw and cut a beak shape from blue cardstock.
     
  5. Draw and cut 2 wings and a comb from coordinating patterned cardstock.
     
  6. Outline the edges of the shell and the chick's body, head and beak with a black paint marker. Draw cracks in the shell.
     
  7. Draw an eye on the chick's head.
     
  8. Adhere the comb and beak to the head with craft glue.
     
  9. Punch a small hole at the top of the first page of chick's body (formerly the bottom of the cupcake) and at the bottom of the head.
     
  10. Attach the head to the body with a brad...this allows you to move the head.
     
  11. Punch holes similarly to attach the wings to the body....so you can move the wings.
     
  12. To decorate the inside pages, trace the exterior shape of the board book on to desired colors of cardstock. Trim the cardstock 1/8" inside the lines.
     
  13. Adhere trimmed cardstock to each board book page with craft glue. You can opt to paint the pages with craft paint instead.
     
  14. Write a story about your chick with a few words on each page. Add photos, drawings and embellishments as desired.
