"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."

  • Aleene’s Paper Glaze DC30-15
  • Darice® Finding Starter Kit in Antique Copper 1972-08CP

  • Darice® crystal aurora borealis cut glass rondelle bead strand 1991-80
  • Darice® fire polished, Czech glass rondelle bead strand in aqua 1999-M200
  • Darice 4 x 6mm silver faceted glass spacer bead strand 1999-2345
  • Scrapbook paper, text, or ephemera of your choice to fill the frames
  • Crimper Tool 1949-10
  • Wire Cutters 1893-05
  • Needle Nose Pliers 1893-13
  • Round Nose Pliers 1995-11
  • ½ inch hole punch, or compass for drawing circles
  • Ruler
  • Scissors or craft knife

Instructions:

  1. Like the previous project, you’ll want to select text or paper for your frames. Using the hole punch, or a compass and craft knife or scissors, punch out the image or text you’d like to use for the round frames. Using the paper glaze, glue the paper into the bezel and then fill to the top of the frame. Allow these to dry overnight.
     
  2. Meanwhile, using the head pins from your copper findings kit, thread on a large aqua rondelle bead and make a wrapped loop. Repeat this so you have two blue drops. Then make 2 wrapped loop pins using the silver rondelles, too.
     
  3. To assemble the focal section of the necklace, attach two jump rings to the rectangle pendant, and link one each through a round bezel. Attach your second bezels to either side. To attach the drop, open a jump ring and thread it around both the bezel loop and the aqua wrapped loop. Take a second jump ring and do the same on the other side. You now have a pretty dangle between your bezels! Attach the silver rondelle wrapped loop pins to either side of your focal section with a jump ring.
     
  4. To create the beaded portion, cut 2 lengths of beading wire approximately 12 inches long. Attach the wire with a crimp bead, leaving a 1 inch tail. Now thread on your beads in the following pattern: aurora borealis bead, silver rondelle, aqua rondelle, silver rondelle, aurora borealis bead.
     
  5. Repeat this pattern for as long as you need your necklace to be. Finish off by adding a crimp bead, your clasp, and crimping off. Trim your beading wire, and you are ready to wear!
