"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!

This is really pretty! I'll have to remember it for next Christmas! I like it with the red ribbon, but I think red holly berry clusters might look nice too, for a slightly different look. The bells would also be really cute attached to a headband/ear warmer. I also like DebiBrien's suggestion to use these as gift toppers! It would add a nice personal touch to any gift!

I love all of your suggestions on things to use these crocheted Christmas bells on your mind works like mine. I love to see what all I can use a project on. I would love to use as an ornament too but problary would need to use a stiffiner on the bells. Have you made any yet? I am reading that they do not work up right. Any suggestions on why? I have not crocheted in a long time.

This looks great in the pic but no matter how many times I tried, I couldn't get the bells to work up right...and I've been doing crochet for 40

I would like to try and make this wreath but it is only printing page 1 cutting off at Bell row 3. and that is all it will print. Your help to fix this problem would be greatly appreciats. Thank You

You could always do a drag and copy to get the full pattern. I do that a lot.

I may not do a wreath but these would make lovely gift toppers that can be used as a pin on a sweater as well
