"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."

Homemade Ombre Infinity Scarf

Materials:

  • Orange Tulip® permanent fabric dye
  • Purple Tulip® permanent fabric dye
  • Sunshine Tulip® permanent fabric dye
  • Salt
  • Disposable plastic table cover
  • Access to stove
  • Plastic tub or bucket
  • Tongs or stirring spoon
  • Stainless steel 5-gallon pot
  • Rubber gloves
  • Thermometer
  • Bulky white natural wool yarn project

Instructions:

  1. Pre-soak knit project in water in separate tub. (Tip: for more intense colors you can add sodium bicarbonate or baking soda).
     
  2. Clear off work surface. Cover with disposable plastic table cover.
     
  3. Place 5-gallon stainless steel pot on burner with minimum of 1 gallon of water.
     
  4. Turn burner to high and wait for water to boil. Add in 5 tablespoons salt for every gallon of water used.
     
  5. Once water has reached 180 degrees F, add ½ to 1 packet of Sunshine Tulip® Permanent Fabric Dye. Stir in dye with tongs or stirring spoon. Let dye fully dissolve.
     
  6. Wring out your project eliminating as much excess water as possible.
     
  7. Using the tongs or spoon, dip in the bottom portion of the project into the dye bath.
     
  8. Allow the project to sit in this bath for 5 minutes or longer depending on the color intensity desired.
     
  9. Remove project and add in remaining Sunshine dye. Maintain the dye bath at 180 degrees F and stir until the dye is fully dissolved.
     
  10. Repeat the process of dipping, but do not submerge up to the original dip line in order to create an ombré effect. Again hold the project in the bath for 5 or more minutes. (Tip: repetitive in and out of the bath will give you a less distinct line between colors).
     
  11. Repeat the above process using the Orange and Violet dyes.
     
  12. Place dyed project in drip safe area over plastic. We dried ours outside in the sun.
     
  13. Clean up dye as instructed by the package. Wipe up all drips.
     
  14. Once dye is completely dry rinse out excess dye with cold water in the sink until water runs clear. (Tip: start at the lighter end and wash to the darker end to make sure light colors are not contaminated.) Let it dry.

Okay here is another infinity scarf to add to my list of ones to make for my daughter and daughter-in-law because they love them and I love the ombre look. I like how you can blend in the colors from light to dark or add in a different color to make it your own and not have to buy the same one everyone has because that is all they have. It is so fun to create yourself and so easy to make this scarf. Super great gift idea and anyone can do this.So let's all get creating. Thank you for posting this.

It would be very helpful to see the "purple" dyee area. I don't see it at all, sounds kind strange withe theses tones in an hombre pattern. Rated 2 out 5 because of confusion with the purple color issue. While hombres can indeed gradate color and tone, usually it is not so drastic a shift.
