"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."

Tiered Christmas Tree Ornament

By: Mandy Court for MaKC Creations

Get out the scrapbook paper and create fun and easy Christmas tree ornaments with your kids. This easy kids Christmas crafts requires just a few simple materials to get started and the result is a lovely three tiered Christmas tree to hang in a window or on your tree.

Easy Paper Ornaments

Materials:

  • Scrapbook paper
  • Glue stick
  • Pony beads
  • Ribbon
  • Glitter Glue
  • Glitter Pens or Markers
  • Paperclips

    Patterm

Steps:

  1. Cut three circles (small, medium, large) from your scrap book paper using the circle template.
     
  2. Cut out of each circle the quarter section as marked
     
  3. Add additional decoration as desired on each circle using glitter glue or glitter pens. Let dry.
     
  4. Using the glue stick, glue along on straight edge.
     
  5. Pull the other straight edge to over lap the glue making a cone. Place a paperclip along the glued edge to hold in place until the glue dries.
     
  6. Cut a piece of ribbon about 10” long. Fold in half. Tie a pony bead on to the loose end (the pony bead is to keep the cones from sliding off the ribbon or out of place). Thread the ribbon through the hole in the top of the largest cone (if the hole is too small make a small cut so the ribbon will thread through.
     
  7. Tie another pony bead about 1” above the large cone. Thread the ribbon through the whole of the medium cone.
     
  8. Tie another pony bead on about 1” above the medium cone and thread on the smallest cone.
     
  9. Optional. Cut slits in the lower edge of each cone and curl the slitted paper upwards using a pencil.
