"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."

Flowered Coin Purse

Create a quick and easy Flowered Coin Purse to store all of your loose change. Add some colored beads and sparkles so you can take it anywhere. If you're looking for crafts for teens, this is the perfect project. Best of all, you don't have to create a coin purse - simply use a plain one that you already have or head to your local dollar store. The tiny beads make this an ideal project for a slightly older crafter, but the simple application make it fun, easy and super quick to finish. Create your own or use a stencil for the best possible design. Cool craft ideas have never been this fun to complete.

Materials:

  • Fashion Beadz
    • FBL06C - Hot Pink
    • FBL33C - Pretty Pink
    • FBL42C - Tropical Kiwi
  • Fashion Beadz 3-D Stencils SB10 - Tropical
  • Palette Knife DT02 - Palette Knife
  • Paper towels
  • Toothpicks
  • Hair dryer with low setting
  • Metallic blue coin purse

 

Instructions:

  1. Use palette knife to scoop and place Hot Pink Beadz into open stencil areas. Spread Beadz with back of palette knife. Slowly remove stencil to keep Beadz in place.
     
  2. Set Beadz using hair dryer on low setting before moving onto next area.
     
  3. For leaves, place small scoop of Tropical Kiwi Beadz on side of flower. Use toothpick and palette knife to shape into leaf. Set with hair dryer. Repeat for each leaf.
     
  4. Place small portion of Pretty Pink Beadz on top of Hot Pink Beadz and, with toothpick, spread into smaller flower shape. Set with hair dryer.
     
  5. Use Hot Pink Beadz and toothpick to spread star shape on top of Pretty Pink Beadz. Set with hair dryer.
     
  6. Allow all Beadz to dry completely.
