"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."

Reflections Scrapbook Page

By: Colleen McDonald for Glue Dots

Colleen McDonald transforms a 12" x 12" embossed metal tin into a sentimental and personalized scrapbook page from Glue Dots. Make a scrapbook you will treasure forever by including a poignant photo in the center of the page.

 

Material:

  • Mini Glue Dots
  • Craft Glue Dots
  • Pop Up Glue GOts
  • 1" Glue Lines
  • Continuous Glue Lines
  • Teal Bayou Acrylic Paint, (Plaid)
  • Dimensional Fluid, (Plaid)
  • Ceramcoat Matte Interior Varnish Sealer, (Delta)
  • Ebony Rub N' Buff, (Amaco)
  • Silver Rub N' Buff, (Amaco)
  • Metal Frame, Letters and Buckle, (Making Memories)
  • Silver Brads, (Lasting Impressions)
  • 8 in. faux leather stripping
  • Black Cardstock
  • White Cardstock
  • Rubber Stamp, (PSX)
  • 12 x 12 Embossed Metal Tin, (Artistic Expressions)

 

Step 1

Mix acrylic paint 85/15% with dimensional fluid.  Apply several coats to metal tin using sponge wedge.  (Three or four coats are adequate for 100% coverage.)  Allow ½ hour drying time between each coat. 

 

Step 2

Using Ebony Rub N' Buff, randomly darken the embossed areas of the tin design.  Repeat this technique using Silver Rub N' Buff, overlapping the colors intermittently. 

 

Step 3

Highlight the outer edge of the frame with Silver Rub N' Buff and apply a coat of sealer over the entire tin to protect the paint.  Allow 2 hours drying time.

 

Step 4

Randomly dab the Making Memories letters, frame and edges of photo with Silver Rub N' Buff. 

 

Step 5

Mat the photo with black cardstock and attach with silver brads in the four corners. 

 

Step 6

 

Thread the leather stripping through the Making Memories buckle. And use Continuous Glue Lines to adhere stripping to photo and backside edges of photo mat. Adhere photo to tin sheet using Craft Glue Dots. Using 1" Glue Lines, mat white cardstock onto small metal frame and secure frame to tin. Mount letters to framed cardstock using Mini Glue Dots.

 

Step 7

Mount letters to framed cardstock using Mini Glue Dots. Stamp quote onto white cardstock and highlight edges with Silver Rub N' Buff.   On backside, place one Pop Up Glue Dot in each corner plus the center and adhere to tin.
