"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."

Glam Chevron Clock

By: P K Glitz Blog

Redo a plan clock by adding some of your own personality! This clock craft shows you how to turn any old clock into a Glam Chevron Clock using scrapbook supplies and embellishments.

Glam Chevron Clock

Materials:

  • Glitter Glitz: colors of your choice (P K Glitz)
  • Ritzy Ditzy Glitz: colors of your choice (P K Glitz)
  • Sticky Tape (P K Glitz)
  • WonderFilm (P K Glitz)
  • Sticky Paper (P K Glitz)
  • Clock
  • Fabric
  • Patterned Paper
  • Embellishments of your choice
     

Instructions:

  1. You will need to start with a clock that you can take apart. The best place to find these are at a discount store.

  2. Once you have removed the cover from the clock, also remove the hands and the paper face. If you cannot remove the clock face, then work over the top of it.

  3. This clock was slightly different than most I have done in the past, but it still worked just fine. Just place Sticky Tape around the edge of the clock and around the center. Cut out a circle from patterned paper the diameter of your clock face. Add any embellishments such as numbers, dots, brads, etc. Remove the covering of the Sticky Tape and adhere the circle to the clock. (I used the Custom Brad Technique found in the P K Glitz classroom for the minor numbers on my clock)

  4. Add Sticky Tape to the hands of your clock. If you have a second hand, then punch (or cut) a small circle from WonderFilm for the round center. Remove the backing from the tape and apply your choice of glitter.

  5. Assemble your clock prior to adding the flowers. Once you are sure that the clock is working properly, make flowers using a variety of styles such as our Dimensional Flowers; Paper Flowers; Ritzy Ditzy Glitz Flowers; punching from Sticky Paper, and adding glitter to rolled paper flowers.

  6. You can also add Ritzy Ditzy Glitz to embellishments like I did with the butterflies. I used a hot glue gun to make sure the flowers and embellishments held well to the clock.
