"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."

All Is Calm Winter Wreath

Looking for some versatile wreath ideas for winter?  Look no further than the All Is Calm Winter Wreath.  Made with lovely stars and winter birds, this seasonal winter door wreath is a great way to welcome guests into your home.  Embellished with sentiments of the season, this wreath is great to have up all winter long, and can easily be displayed both indoors and out.

All is Calm Winter Wreath

Materials:

  • Fuse Creativity System® Starter Set
  • Kaleidoscope Border Punch
  • Season’s Greetings Simple Stick™ Repositionable Rubber Stamps (8" x 8")
  • Artificial wreath
  • An assortment of solid, pattered, and glittered cardstock
  • Paper glue
  • Adhesive rhinestones
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Ink pad
  • Embossing power
  • Heat gun

 

Instructions:

  1. Start by paying a visit to your favorite craft store to select your wreath. There are many styles and sizes available. I picked this light, airy pine one with tiny pinecones already attached. You could use a fresh wreath too, but in time, the moisture from the wreath could cause your paper trimmings to curl. 
     
  2. Create a ribbon for your wreath by cutting several long strips of craft or butcher paper measuring a total of six to eight feet. Punch the edges of the paper strips with a border punch.

  3. Dab the punched edges of the strips with ink, and dust with gold embossing powder. Heat with a heat gun to set the powder.

  4. Loosely wrap the ribbons around your wreath. Attach the ends to the wreath using a hot glue gun.

  5. Punch fifteen plus stars from assorted cardstock and glittered papers. 
     
  6. Stamp several holiday sentiments using gold ink on a dark cardstock. Cut out the sentiment and trim the tail of the strip with a chevron.  Attach the strips with glue to several of your stars.

  7. Punch several birds from coordinating papers using your Fuse Creativity System Glue the wings to the bird, and add an adhesive rhinestone for the eye.
