"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."

Materials:

  • Tulip® Surface Cover™
  • Washing machine
  • Disposable plastic tablecloth
  • (3) Silk pillow covers
  • Plastic shoebox sized containers (enough for each dye color selected)
  • Large pastry cooling racks (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Wash pillow covers and leave damp. 

     
  2. Cover work surface with plastic tablecloth then lay out pastry racks on top if desired. Tip: Placing items on pastry racks while dyeing helps to prevent colors from pooling into each other.
     
  3. Mix desired dye colors from kit according to package instructions. Pour each into a separate plastic container. Colors used in this project: red, orange, yellow and green.

     
  4. For red and orange pillow, scrunch pillow cover horizontally. Holding it in the center, dip approximately one-third into orange dye. Wearing gloves included in kit, squeeze out excess dye.

     
  5. Dip opposite one-third into red dye and squeeze out excess. Keep fabric scrunched and lay out on pastry cooling rack while dye sets.

     
  6. For green and yellow pillow, scrunch cover horizontally. Dip one end into yellow dye and squeeze out excess.

     
  7. Carefully unscrunch pillow and dip one opposing corner into green dye.  Squeeze out excess and lay out on rack.

     
  8. Allow covers to set for time suggested or overnight.

     
  9. Rinse each cover under cool running water to remove excess dye.

     
  10. Wash separately according to package instructions and allow to air dry.
