"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:

  • Mod Podge ® Silicone Craft Mat
  • Apple Barrel ® Colors - Aquamarine, 2 oz.
  • FolkArt ® Acrylic Colors - Pearl Mandarin Satin, 2 oz.
  • FolkArt ® Metallics - Royal Gold, 2 oz.; Ice Blue, 2 oz; Blue Topaz, 2 oz; Pearl White, 2 oz
  • Mod Podge ® Mod Melts - White Milk Glass
  • Mod Podge ® Mod Molds - Sea Life
  • Mod Podge ® Collage Clay - Vanilla White
  • High-temp Hot Glue Gun
  • Paintbrush
  • Mason Jar
  • Raffia
  • Hot Glue
  • Wood plaque pic
  • Detail paintbrush
  • Styrofoam ball
  • Natural fiber filler

Instructions:

  1. Make the 3 starfish and 2 sand-dollars by heating a Mod Melt stick in a mini high temp glue gun. Squeeze the hot melt into the mold and fill to the top. It will self level. Wait 7 min. and when cool pop out. Trim around the melt if you have any rough edges.  

     
  2. Paint the starfish with Mandarin Satin. Use two coats if necessary. Once dry lightly paint the very top with a few taps of Royal Gold. This will add depth to the starfish.  

     
  3. Paint the sand-dollars with Pearl White paint. Use two coats if necessary. 

     
  4. Make random shaped faux beach glass by squeezing hot Mod Melts onto the craft mat in oval and beach glass shapes. Allow to cool. Paint each one a solid color using Aquamarine, Blue Topaz and Ice Blue.  

     
  5. Cover the jar with Mod Podge Collage Clay, press the faux beach glass into the collage clay and allow to dry  

     
  6. Wrap the neck of the jar with raffia and hot glue a cluster of beach glass, a sand-dollar and a starfish.

     
  7. Paint a number onto the wood plaque with one of the beach glass colors. Wrap the stem of the pic with raffia.  

     
  8. Hot glue a Styrofoam ball into the base of the jar. Press the end of the pic into the ball, remove, add hot glue to the end of the pic and pace back into the ball. Fill the jar with natural fibers. Hot glue a cluster of beach glass, a sand-dollar and a starfish to the wood plaque.

I think this would really look cute during a beach wedding. Wouldn't the jar get heavy with those stones?
