"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."

Materials:

  • Christmas tree cookie cutter
  • Fabric scrap
  • Rick rack
  • Buttons (I switched out the rhinestones at the last minute)

  • Thin lined marker
  • Scissors
  • Cording or string

 

Instructions:

  1. Place a line of glue around the back perimeter of the cookie cutter and place onto fabric.  Let dry.

  2. Cut excess fabric around entire cookie cutter.  Don't worry if fabric pulls away from the cutter, you can reapply the glue when you are finished.
     
  3. Place a line of glue around the entire side of the cookie cutter.  Follow with the rick rack, starting at the bottom of the cutter.  Cut off excess.
