"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."

Make an Easter egg holder in seconds with hot glue. Dying Easter eggs will never be easier, and you'll have a convenient way to display your eggs afterward. Using colorful hot glue, you can make a basic little stand for your eggs. The colorful stands are festive for spring time! Make as many as you need. You just need to wait for them to dry, and you're good to go. Once you have your Easter egg stands all made, you can display faux Easter eggs throughout the house, or even store hard boiled eggs on the little stands in your fridge for easy access.

These are cute and look WAAAAY more reliable than using the carton. So many dyed eggs have been ruined because I trusted the instructions on the box #bitter

This is so so fast and easy and a very quick video but you must see this a great way to let your eggs dry while you are dying them instead of using the carton. Just use hot glue and make a small indent in it to let eggs sit level. So cool.
