"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."

Ring in the new year with this Metallic Glittered Star Assortment.  Nothing says joy and celebration like stars and glitter, and this project combines them both into one great New Year's Eve decoration!  These metallic stars shine with shades of gold and silver and the selection of sizes and styles gives this decoration texture and pizzazz.  For a beautiful and striking backdrop, you could even hang these stars from the ceiling so they appear to be floating in air.  Ring in the new year with sparkle and shine by decorating with these fun metallic glittered stars!

  1. Print star templates on cardstock and cut out.  Pin templates to the foam sheets.  Follow the template to cut the stars from the foam sheet using the serrated knife.  Following the package instructions, carefully use the StyroCutter® Plus to cut the smaller stars from the centers.  Be sure to keep the blade of the cutter at a 90 degree angle to the foam.  Keep a steady pace and do not force the blade through the foam.

  2. Brush the stars with a generous amount of decoupage.  While the stars are still wet, apply a thick coat of glitter.  Prop up on toothpicks to dry.

  4. Cut various lengths of dowels to create stands for some of the stars.  Spray paint the dowels a coordinating color and let dry.  Glue one end of the dowels into the bottom of the stars and the other end into the discs.  Conceal the discs with artificial snow and pine branches in your display.
