"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 Tissue Wreaths

By: Kathleen George for STYROFOAM Brand Foam

This colorful tissue wreath can be used year-round, but would look great around the holiday season. Tissue paper and ribbon are what brings this whole craft together into one lovely piece. Kathleen George shows us how to make it in six easy steps.

Find this and other Rainbow Crafts at "14 Simple DIY Rainbow Crafts for Springtime"!

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • Wreaths: 9" x 1-1/4" x 3/4"; two 6" x 1-1/4" x 5/8"
  • Coordinating grosgrain ribbon, 1" x 1/2 yd.
  • Brightly colored tissue paper, several large sheets in assorted colors
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Optional: Rotary cutter, cutting mat and metal ruler
  • Optional: Straight pins
  • Thick, white craft glue

 

Instructions:

Note: You will need a total of eighty 4" x 6" pieces of tissue paper to cover all three foam wreaths. To save time, stack several layers of tissue paper and use rotary cutter to cut multiple 4"-wide strips. Combine strips into stacks and cut multiple 6" lengths at a time.

  1. Set aside 40 tissue pieces for 9" foam wreath and 20 pieces for each 6" wreath.
     
  2. Fold each tissue piece in half lengthwise to measure 2" x 6". Cut 1-1/2"-long fringe along folded edge, every 1/4". Leave strips folded.
     
  3. Wrap and glue top edge of first fringed strip, opposite fold, around one side of wreath. Glue and pin ends at back to secure, leaving fringe loose.
     
  4. Wrap and glue second fringed strip around wreath, 1/2" below first and under fringe; pin ends if desired. Wrap and glue remaining tissue strips around wreath in same way until surface is completely covered. Repeat to cover all three wreaths.
     
  5. Use scissors to make small holes in center top and bottom of 9" wreath (A) and one 6" wreath (B); make small hole in center top of remaining 6" wreath (C). Using photo as guide, position wreaths on work surface with B in the center.
     
  6. Cut one 8" and two 4" ribbon lengths. Glue ends of 4" lengths into holes in wreaths, joining A and B and B and C together. Glue ends of 8" length into hole at top of A for hanger; pin to secure.
