"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."

Learn how to knit a scarf without any needles! This knit scarf pattern features Loop-It yarn which is easy enough for kids and adults alike to finger knit with. If you love the thick and cushy look of a bulky soft blanket yarn, don't shy away from this pattern. After all, knitting isn't just for knitters! You can learn a variety of techniques to get the knit look, and using Loop-It yarn is one way to do so. Best of all, this jumbo weight yarn means the scarf works up super quickly. This is a fantastic rainy day craft that will result in the coziest scarf.

From Red Heart: This scarf is fashionable and easy to make! You don’t need to know how to knit or crochet, just pull the loops through and you’ll have a scarf in no time. 

NOTES

  • Finger looping fun ™ - No tools required 
  • Begin work on a flat surface. Stitches are worked by pulling loops of yarn through a row of previous loops. Right side will be facing throughout. 
  • To join balls of yarn, overlap three loops from the end of first ball with three loops from the beginning of second ball and work overlapping loops as one.
