"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."

Easy Photo Christmas Ornaments

By: Fawnda Norman for Fireflies and Jellybeans

Everyone loves personalized gifts for the holidays.  Make these Easy Photo Christmas Ornaments by Fawnda Norman for everyone on your list this year.  They will also look great on your tree!

 

Materials:

  • Christmas cards
  • Paper Cutter
  • Big chunky beads
  • Double sided tape
  • Wallet size photo (I printed mine on paper)
  • Twine or Ribbon
  • Exacto Knife

Instructions:

  1. Cut your cards in to 3X3 inch squares and group them by color. You need 6 squares for each ornament.



     
  2. On the back side of each square find mark the midpoint on each side (at 1.5 inches)


     
  3. Score a diagonal line connecting your midpoints. Do this on each square.



     
  4. Fold on your score lines. You should have 6 squares that look like this:


     
  5. Choose two squares to be your top and bottom. Find the middle (I drew lines across from each corner to find mine) and use your Exacto Knife to cut a whole in the center.



     
  6. Use your double sided tape to connect your 2 of the corners of 2 of your squares.  This is what the back should look like:




    And this is what the front should look like:



     
  7. Continue connecting until you have 4 of your squares together that make a "tube".




     
  8. Choose the bottom and sting your twine or ribbon through the hole and attach onto the bottom of your "tube"



     
  9. Pull your twine up through your tube and through your top piece. Connect your top piece to the rest of the ornament.


     
  10. Tie a loop on the top.


     
  11. And tie a bead onto the bottom.


     
  12. cut out your photos (about 2X2 inch square) and attach it to one of the sides.


     
  13. You're done!
