"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."

Colorful Mod Cube Ornament

By: Kathleen George for Styrofoam Brand Foam

Foam, shapes and curling ribbon can now be turned into a great craft. These colorful mod cubes can be used as an ornament and a home decoration. It's a fun kids' craft as well and can be finished in three easy steps.

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • Cube, 3"
  • Coordinating curling ribbon
  • Craft foam, colors of choice: sheets; pre-cut shapes (optional)
  • Compass or small circle template (optional)
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Extra-long straight pins (optional)
  • Thick, white craft glue

Steps:

(Note: Closely supervise young children with scissors, or cut pieces for them.)

 

  1. Use sharp pencil to trace opposite sides of foam cube onto back of one craft foam sheet; cut out and glue to cube. Repeat for remaining sides, using second craft foam color. Repeat for top and bottom. Trim excess at cube edges. Pin corners to secure; let dry. Remove pins.
     
  2. Refer to photo to glue pre-cut or hand-cut geometric shapes such as circles, squares and stripes to cube sides; let dry.
     
  3. Use scissors point to poke small hole in one cube corner. Cut 6" length from curling ribbon; knot ends to form hanging loop. Glue knot into hole; let dry. If desired, tie second ribbon length into bow with curled ends; glue to base of hangers.

Cool idea and I never would have thought of a cube as an ornament. Kids would love to do this fun project! As another option, I could see turning these cubes into prettily wrapped Christmas present ornaments, with added bows and ribbons embellishing the sides and top and hanging them in the tree.thesenwould also make a cute little package topper alongside or in place of a bow or ribbon, and becomes a part of the gift too! Fun idea, asks for sharing!

easy to do with kids
