"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."

Etched Martini Glasses

By: Etchworld

These etched martini glasses from Etchworld Armour will give your cocktail some saucy flair! Follow these glass etching instructions and change your plain martini glasses into etched glass sensations.

Etched Martini Glasses

Materials:

  • Armour’s Etch Bath®
  • Plastic Container
  • Glass Paint
  • Contact® Shelving Vinyl
  • Pencil
  • Hobby Knife
  • Glass Cleaner
  • Masking Tape
  • Running Water
  • Paper Towels

Steps:

  1. Clean glass with glass cleaner and apply vinyl masking. Cover everything that will remain clear (not etched).
     
  2. Using a pencil draw an oval round the middle portion of the glass. Use a hobby knife to cut along the line. Remove the bottom portion of masking.
     
  3. Use additional vinyl masking to cover the entire top of the glass (the open portion), by placing the top of the glass face down on the adhesive side of the masking paper. Fold up the edges making sure to form a tight seal at all the seams. You may need to cut smaller pieces and place them over any areas that may leak.
     
  4. Place your glass in a plastic bucket and add water until it covers all the exposed glass. Remove your glass and mark the height of the water that is in the container, on the outside of the container with a marker.
     
  5. Empty out the water and dry the container and glass project thoroughly.
     
  6. Fill the container with Etch Bath to the line you just made. Place the martini glass into the Etch Bath. The level should rise to the same height as before. Sumerge the glass for 5 to 10 minutes or more, depending on the type and hardness of the glass. Use glove covered hands.
     
  7. Remove glass from Etch Bath and rinse under running water.
     
  8. Remove masking and clean with glass cleaner.
     
  9. Place some glass paint on the etched surface and using a straw, blow to push the paint to create an abstract design. Use different colors to enhance the effect. Be sure to follow the instructions for use and safety from the glass paint manufacturer and Etch Bath bottle.
