"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."

wood burning project

Materials:

  • Walnut Hollow® Creative Versa-Tool®
  • Rectangle Basswood Plaque, 9"x12"
  • DecoArt® American® Classic Stencil – Tin Ceiling
  • Minwax® Spray Varnish, Satin
  • Ceramic Dish
  • Sandpaper, Fine
  • Foam Brush
  • Pencil
  • Pliers
  • Ruler
  • Tape
  • Wood Sealer

 

Instructions:

  1. After reading all manufacturer’s instructions found inside the Creative Versa-Tool®, attach Flow Point on Tool. Secure Tool Stand to work surface with tape. Place Tool on Stand. Plug into electric outlet, turn Versa-Temp control dial to the Red Zone, and heat for four to five minutes.
     
  2. Meanwhile, use the ruler to find the center of the plaque. Tape stencil in place to center tile design. Use pencil to trace stencil design onto wood surface. Trace corner elements with pencil also.
     
  3. Use Flow Point to burn each stencil design. Add dots by holding Creative Versa-Tool® perpendicular to the wood surface, touching the surface, then lifting the point off the surface. You can make smaller or larger dots by touching lightly or a little stronger. Once all elements are wood-burned, use pliers to remove Flow Point and drop it into the ceramic dish.
     
  4. Use pliers to attach the Shading Point. After wood-burning all edges of the plaque, turn Versa-Temp control dial to “O” – off.
     
  5. Use eraser to remove any remaining pencil lines.
     
  6. Use foam brush to seal entire plaque. Let dry.
     
  7. Lightly sand entire surface with fine sandpaper.
     
  8. For a protective finish, spray plaque with two or three coats of spray varnish.
