"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."

Stenciled Boxers Instructions

  1. Use scissors to cut two 12” x 14” pieces of shelf paper.

  2. Place pattern under paper then use felt pen to trace random hearts onto the sheet moving paper over pattern.

  3. To create stencil, carefully cut out center of each heart, leaving sheet intact.

  4. Peel off paper backing and press into place on one side of shorts. Run fingernail around each edge of heart to prevent seepage.

  5. Squeeze a puddle of Glacier White of Tulip® Soft Paint™ onto foil. Tap flat end of wedge sponge into paint then tap excess off on foil. Pounce paint into heart stencil adding more paint to sponge as needed. Continue sponging paint into all hearts. Carefully peel off stencil.

  7. Follow paint label instructions for care of garment.
