"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."

Potted Faux Flower Craft

DIY Faux Flower Craft Instructions

  1. Cut your vase using a mat board. Make a sizzix sandwich by doing cutting pad, dye, board, and the cutting pad on the top as well.  

  2. Now, cut your flower, using paper leather leather materials and whatever die cuts you would like.

  3. Make some notches in your flower layer that will be on the bottom of your flower to help it have a more 3D shape. Crinkle up every layer of your flower. 

  4. Take your ink and begin adding color your flowers. Do this to both sides of each layer of petals. Then spritz your flower with a little bit of water to give your flower a water color affect.

  5. Using a twist and style tool make your stem and embellish the tip of it with a button. Then, add your flower petals onto the back of your stem and push them all the way up. 

    Pro Tip: To get the petals to stay in place and not slide off, you can glue it in place, you could use a flower calli.

  6. Add your leaves using the same technique that you did for the petals, or glue the leaves right onto the back of your flower. 

  7. Assemble your vase by folding it on every score line. Then, tape the to ends of your your vase together. Add the bottom part to your vase. 

  8. Using a styrofoam ball, adapt the size of the ball by taking it and pressing it along the edges to make it a little smaller to help it fit into your vase. Then, add some fleece to the top of your ball and pin or glue it in place.

  9. ​Put that int your vase to act as the grass. Put your flower in place.
