"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."

Red and Gold Glitter Ornament

Add some sparkle and shine to your holiday this year. Make your very own Red and Gold Glitter Ornaments to decorate your tree.You can also give these DIY Christmas ornaments to friends during the Christmas season. Easy homemade Christmas ornaments are a great way to show off your creative skills and get in the spirit of the season. For this project, grab glitter, beads and ribbon to get started. Don't make a traditional ornament this year - change red and green to red and gold for an unexpected color scheme. This ornament is super fun to make and is sure to stick out on your tree.
 


 

Materials:

  • GEM-TAC Embellishing Glue
  • DAZZLE-TAC Jewelry Glue
  • Small gold, white pearl, and amber flat back beads
  • Clear 4” diameter glass ornament
  • Two different patterned holiday ribbons (example uses red & green plaid)
  • Fine gold glitter
  • Scissors, small funnel, toothpick, small medicine cup.

 

Instructions:

  1. Rinse out glass ornament with warm water to wash away any dust.
     
  2. Carefully remove the top of the ornament. Mix 1/2 tsp of GEM-TAC with a few drops of water, mixing with a toothpick. Mixture should be thin but not too runny. Pour mixture into ornament and shake and turn ornament to coat the inside of the ball with glue. Turn ball upside down over a paper cup to drain excess glue. Let stand about one minute.
     
  3. Place the funnel into opening and pour in at least ½ tsp of gold glitter. Place thumb over opening and shake until the entire inside of the ball is well coated. Let dry overnight and repeat process if any bare spots can be seen. Glue ornament top on with a little DAZZLE-TAC.
     
  4. Cut two lengths of the plaid ribbon and glue onto the ball using a bit of DAZZLE-TAC, crisscrossing the ribbon. Repeat process with gold and red ribbon.
     
  5. Apply a bead of DAZZLE-TAC between the ribbons and press on the gold, pearl, and amber beads as in the photo. Use a toothpick to gently press them in place. Repeat around the ball until complete. Glue extra beads around top to finish. Tie cord onto cap loop to hang.

Looks nice, if a little too 'busy' for my taste (but it's for Christmas, so I can live with that!). Just one 'nit-picking' point - surely it'd be easier to rinse the ornament out (step 1) if we remove the top (1st sentence in step 2) FIRST..?
