"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."

Striped Tie Dye T Shirt

By: Alyice Edrich for The Dabbling Mum

Want to make a quick, tie-dye-look shirt without all the hassle and mess? You can create a nice striped tie-dye t-shirt in under just 20 minutes with Simply Spray. Alyice Edrich shows you how.

Striped Tie-Dye T-Shirt 


  • Simply Spray ® paint (your color of choice), 1 can
  • White cotton t-shirt
  • Rubber bands
  • Newspaper or clear trash bags


1.    Cover your work area with clear plastic trash bags (or newspaper) to avoid excess spray from ruining your furniture or floors.

2.    Lay your freshly washed and dried t-shirt on top of the clear trash bags (or newspaper).

3.    Starting at the bottom, fold your t-shirt like an accordion (back and forth in a zig-zag motion) then tie the ends together with a rubber band.

4.    Grab your favorite color of paint and spray the front, back, top and bottom folds.

5.    Remove the rubber bands, flatten the shirt, and let dry.

That's literally all it takes to create a cute tie-dye t-shirt!

Designer Tip: Make sure you start your spray on a scrap piece of material (as suggested per instructions), then continue holding down the trigger as you move the spray over the t-shirt.

After reading this super fast and easy DIY, so many uses come to mind for this spray paint tie dye technique! Wouldn't it look so cool on a 100% cotton white sheet set? Flat, fitted, and the pillow cases, too! Oh my gosh, for your student's dorm room! Also, buy your shirts and cotton shorts from Michaels craft stores when they're on sale. How about using more than one color spray paint? Make stripes. Actually, that would be pretty difficult and painstaking to do because you'd have to alternately cover the accordion folds and be real careful not to get fly away paint to land where you don't want it to. In any case, I love this craft!

This looks very easy to do with a large group of kids. They could even repurpose an old T-shirt instead of buying a new one.
