"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."

  9. Use felt-tip pens to add the rest of the facial features. 
     
  10. Use an overcast stitch to prevent the organza circles from fraying. Cut a small hole in the center of each organza circle, add a drop of glue to the skewer just below the flower and push the bottom end of the kebab skewer through the opening.
     
  11. Gather the fabric around the skewer and use the ribbon to make a bow to keep the “dress” from slipping down. Cut the ends of the bow shorter to make it neat.

  13. Give the polystyrene hand an uneven wash with the pink paint. Allow to dry and then do the same with the pale gold paint.
     
  14. Push the bottom part of the skewer into the polystyrene hand. Add a drop of polystyrene glue and allow to dry, making sure that the fairy is standing upright.

I love this! I am definitely making this for my daughter. Will probably not include the bottom part so she can use this for writing.
