"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."

  • Scissors
  • Nail file

Instructions:

  1. BODY: Pin one end of a 2 yd. length of white jumbo loopy chenille to the narrow end of 5" egg; coil it around egg, covering completely, and pinning again at wide end. The narrow end of the egg is the chest; the wide end is the tail end.
     
  2. HEAD: Repeat Step 1, coiling a 33" length of white jumbo loopy around 3" egg. The narrow end of the egg is the face. Push a craft stick 1/2 way into one side of egg; secure with glue. Push other end of craft stick into body, about 1 1/2" back from chest.
     
  3. LEGS: Cover 4 1/2" length of dowel with 8" length of white jumbo loopy; glue one end of loopy to dowel and cover dowel, leaving 3/4" bare at other end. Repeat with other three legs. Glue the two front legs into the bottom of the body about 1" apart and 1" back from chest. Glue two back legs into bottom of body 2" back from front legs and 1 3/4" apart.
     
  4. FACE: Clip the loops of the loopy chenille in a 3" circle around the wide end of 3" egg; do not clip too close or the wire will show. Glue nose to the center of the trimmed circle. Glue the eyes 1/2" up from the nose, about 3/4" apart. Blush the cheeks.

  7. Glue 20" length of 5/8" ribbon around the 6" disc. Glue a 40" length of 5/8" ribbon around 12" disc. Glue the 6" disc to center of 12" disc, 2" from one edge; this is the back of the centerpiece.
     
  8. Glue the front legs to the 6" disc and the back legs to the 12" disc at the back of the centerpiece.
     
  9. Using a nail file, gather and tuck two 18" pieces of tulle into the discs under and around the lamb.
     
  10. Glue a 9" length of 1/2" satin ribbon around lamb's neck; glue jingle bell to front of collar.
     
  11. Using tire wire, make a single bow from 5/8" ribbon; glue to one ear.
     
  12. Using tire wire and one yard of 1 1/2" organdy ribbon, make a bow with two 3" tails and four 3" loops. Using tire wire and one yard 5/8" ribbon, make a bow with two 3" tails, four 2 1/2" loops and a center. Tie bows together and glue to base next to lamb.

Oh wow what a cute little lamb this is. I want some for myself. You can use them in so many ways as a cake topper for a baby shower or a table centerpiece by itself or a bunch of lambs from mom and dad to babies for a shower or even in the Easter basket with some peeps. Make a pretty bow in pink or blue or other pretty colors and maybe even glue a small bell on the ribbon too. I think I am going to give this tutorial a try . Has anyone seen a video done making the lamb?

Where is thepicture of the little lamb?
