"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."

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

My sister made one of these with navy blue and silver ribbon! Just make sure the opening is big enough for cards of all sizes to fit.

I love this idea. It is very unique and practical, too.

This is beautiful, I never thought of making a 3-tiered cake for a card box. It is very unique and it will definately have resale value after the wedding is over. I made my own card box and I sold it after my wedding and got more for it than what it cost to make, it was nothing this unique though. Great idea!!!!

THIS IS VERY PRETTY BUT MY GRANDDAUGHTER IS GETING MARRIED IN FLORIDA NEXT SUMMER AND THEY R DOING THE WEDDING IN SEA SHELLS AND TAKING THERE VOWS AT THE OCEAN IS THERE SOMTHING WITH SEASHELLS U COULD RECOMEND THANK U
