"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."

Colorful Clay Focal Pendant

By: Jenny Barnett Rohrs for Consumer Crafts

This Colorful Clay Focal Pendant from Jenny Barnett Rohrs for Consumer Crafts is a great addition to your jewelry collection.  Made with polymer clay and a pendant you have at home, this custom pendant design can transform a blah outfit into a fabulous one!  Mix and match colors to create unique designs for you and all your friends!

 Colorful Clay Focal Pendant

Materials:

  • Jill MacKay Swirl Pendant with Rhinestones
  • 7mm Nickel Plated Jump Ring
  • 2 Blocks of Sculpey Polymer Clay - One in White or Pearl and the Other in Orange (or any other color of your choice)
  • Studio 71 Polymer Clay Press
  • Polymer Clay Blade or Sharp Knife Dedicated to Polymer Clay
  • Pin or Small Awl

     

Instructions:

  1. Slice ½ inch chunks from your blocks of clay. Condition the clay individually by kneading with your hands or running through the clay press 10-15 times.
     
  2. Using the clay press, roll your clays individually into sheets about 4 inches by 5 inches. Cut each at an angle as shown in the picture below.

  3. Gently “smoosh” together the pieces, then fold the clay from the bottom edge to kiss the top edge. The most important thing to remember is that light stays on light, and dark stays on dark.

  4. Using the clay press, again, run it through the rollers. Always feed it into the clay press at the fold. Then, folding bottom to top, repeat another 5 times.

  5. Keep folding bottom to top and running it through the machine until the colors blend and you get a smooth gradient. Make sure your finished clay sheet is at least 1/8” thick.

  6. Remove the jump ring from the pendant and discard. Lay your pendant on top of the clay sheet, and trim all the way around using a craft knife or tissue blade.

  7. Using a pin, poke a hole through the place where the jump ring attaches and go through the clay. Place your pendant on a tile or scrap piece of white cardstock and bake according to manufacturer’s directions. (HINT: Tent the piece with foil to avoid scorching.) Remove from oven and let cool completely. Add a 7mm jump ring and your piece is ready to wear on your favorite chain!
