"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."

This great kitchen canister set from Plaid is just like Martha's!  Keep all your food organized with this easy kitchen craft.  These Martha Stewart Knockoff Canisters also make a great gift for a housewarming or a newly married couple.

Martha Stewart Knockoff Canisters

Materials:

  • Martha Stewart Crafts™ 2oz Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Craft Paint - Blue Sky
  • Martha Stewart Crafts™ 2oz Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Craft Paint - Tartan Red
  • Martha Stewart Crafts™ 2oz Multi-Surface High Gloss Acrylic Craft Paint - Wedding Cake
  • Martha Stewart Crafts™ 6oz Multi-Surface Chalkboard Paint Acrylic Craft Paint - Blue
  • Martha Stewart Crafts™ Specialty Sponges
  • Martha Stewart Crafts™ Foam Pouncers Set - 6pc
  • Martha Stewart Crafts™ Stencil Tape
  • Canister set
  • Containers of your choice


Instructions:
TIP Practice your technique or check your color by first making a sample print on paper or scrap fabric.

  1. Use a straight edge and pencil to draw a guide line, if applicable.
     
  2. Remove backing from stencil and set aside. Place stencil on surface.
     
  3. Pour a small amount of paint onto your palette. Load paint sparingly on a stencil brush or sponge and dab off excess. Lightly dab on a thin layer of paint; apply a second coat if necessary. Paint all areas of one color on the stencil before moving on to the next.
     
  4. While paint is still wet, carefully peel off stencil.
     
  5. Continue painting areas of the stencil according to your design. Let the paint dry completely before placing another stencil (or color) over it.

Cookie Jar

  1. Use stencil tape to tape off a 5in x 6in rectangle on the cookie jar.
     
  2. Use a specialty sponge to paint 2 to 3 layers of blue chalkboard paint. Before paint dries, carefully release stencil tape.
     
  3. Use Tartan Red and a foam pouncer and follow general adhesive stenciling instructions.

Clean Up

  1. Wash all stencils, brushes, and tools immediately after use before the paint dries. Use Martha Stewart Crafts Brush & Stencil Cleaner to remove dried paint.
     
  2. Repair torn stencils with transparent tape. Place tape on both sides of the tear and cut away the excess with a craft knife.

WHAT DID YOU USE FOR CAN FOR THE CANISTERS SET? I have never made one but would like to know what kind of different size of cans?

Hi there, I suggest visiting a craft store or retailer like Walmart or Target to purchase canisters. There is not indication that you need a specific kind, so pick something that is easy to DIY.

Hi, I am looking for directions on how to use spray paint with stencils. Also what kind of spray paint works best on glass. Thanks.
