"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."

Fabric Covered Coasters

Use an intricate fabric design to create these Fabric Covered Coasters.  DIY drink coasters like these make great gifts for anyone on your list, and they're a great way to work through that pile of fabric scraps!  It's super easy and fun to make your own coasters, and you'll have so much fun creating these fabric coasters for everyone on your gift list.

Fabric Coasters

Materials:

  • Six hexagon-shaped wooden coasters, easily obtainable from most craft shops
  • Suitable fabric
  • Mod Podge
  • 10/32”  paintbrush
  • Pair of ordinary scissors
  • Quick-drying spray varnish
  • Felt in a matching color to glue to the bottom of the coasters
  • Old newspaper to protect the working area
  • Hairdryer

 

Instructions:

  1. Cut a piece of fabric that is slightly bigger that the coaster.

  2. Paint a thick layer of Mod Podge over the front of the coaster. Keep the edges and the back of the coaster clean.
     
  3. Carefully place the fabric onto the coaster, the right side of the fabric facing upwards.
     
  4. Working from the middle of the coaster, and from the inside towards the outside, rub out all the air bubbles from the back of the fabric. Check that the fabric sticks properly to the edges of the coaster.
     
  5. Dry the coaster thoroughly with the hairdryer.
     
  6. Cut off any fabric that protrudes beyond the edges of the coaster.
     
  7. Paint a second layer of Mod Podge over the fabric on the coaster, and dry with the hairdryer again.
     
  8. To protect the fabric and allow easy cleaning, apply one coat of the quick-drying spray varnish, and allow to dry thoroughly.
     
  9. Cut the felt to the correct size and glue to the back of the coaster, so that the project will have a neat finish. Apply one coat of the quick-drying spray varnish to the felt.
     
  10. Complete the rest of the set of coasters in the same way.
