"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."

"Fun craft. Takes a bit of planning and time. Beautiful to hang on a wall. Show creativity in matching appropriate colors. I really enjoyed the challenge in making this craft. Everyone who has seen it likes it very much and when I hang it on my wall I use battery lit ribbon to embellish it. It was a little more costly than some decorations because of the amount of decorations needed to make it but we can be thankful for dollar stores which brings the cost down considerably."

This is a very pretty and easy project to make. There are just a few caution points. Remember if you do get ok'd vintage ornaments, they were usually made out of glass. If little ones are helping be very careful. And I recommend hanging it on the wall and not the door. It will get dashed to pieces on a door.

This is a fun wreath to make, and I have seen them in stores but they don't have this wonderful vintage feel. Check out recycle and free sites and estate sales for old vintage round ornaments and it can be made for not too much cash! For kids, the plastic variety can be used, and no worries of injury if dropped. If an ornament does get broken, the ornament can be removed by taking its cap off, and then slipping the replacement back onto the cap by squeezing the ends in to fit. No need to re-open the hanger! This would make a fun craft night and a lovely gift!
