"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."

Materials:

  • Shirt
  • Stencil
  • Paper towels
  • Painters tape
  • Lace
  • Repositionable stencil adhesive spray
  • Decorative scissors
  • Gold rhinestones
  • ColorArtz airbrush kit and paint pouches: Bronze Have More Fun, Mango Tango, Blonde Ambition
  • Pattern

 

Instructions:
BEFORE PAINTING, ALWAYS WASH AND DRY FABRIC (WITHOUT FABRIC SOFTENER) AND COVER EXPOSED FABRIC TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL OVER SPRAY DURING PAINTING.

  1. Match up the shirt’s side seams and shoulders and pin them together. This will help you find the accurate center front of the shirt. Iron a soft crease in the shirt from the neckline to the hem to mark the center. Slip cardboard between the shirt front and back to avoid transfer of paint between the layers.
     
  2. Download and print out the stencil. With a craft knife cut out the butterfly on the red stencil outline. Make one continuous cut. You will be using the cut out piece later so be sure it is not sliced or separated in any way. Set aside.

  3. Spray the back of the stencil with repositionable adhesive stencil spray.
     
  4. Place the stencil on the shirt, aligning the centerlines of the stencil and shirt. Press down on the cut edges.
     
  5. Paint the open stencil section with streaks of Mango Tango followed by Blonde Ambition paint. Spray diagonally from one outside edge to the other. Try to leave a little white of the shirt showing.

  6. Trim off the four wing borders “A” from the wing section using decorative craft scissors or pinking shears. Spray adhesive on the back of the four “A” pieces and the single “B” piece.

  7. Place the “B” section inside the stencil to protect the wings during the next step.

  8. With regular scissors, cut a few tiny odd shapes from painter’s tape and adhere them to the exposed wing borders. Paint the borders with a light spray of Bronze Have More Fun paint.

  9. When dry, you will create a Bronze outline at the top and bottom of the wings by positioning the “B” section about a quarter of an inch away from the stencil. Spray the space with the Bronze Have More Fun paint. Repeat at the wing bottoms.

  10. Set aside section “B”. Put the four section “A”s back in place. Position a decorative stencil or lace over one wing after applying adhesive to the back. Spray with Bronze Have More Fun paint to create designs inside the wings. Repeat on the other wing.

  11. Place the “B” section on the cutting mat and cut out all the grey areas which will separate the wings. Return the two “B” pieces to the dry shirt and press in place. Spray with a rich coat of Bronze Have More Fun paint.
     
  12. When dry, carefully remove all the pieces. Use the point of a craft knife to lift up the tiny pieces of painters tape.
     
  13. Cut the black areas of the lettering out of the stencil. Adhere to shirt and spray with Bronze Have More Fun Paint.
     
  14. Create antennae with a few hot fix rhinestones. Adhere with an iron or rhinestone applicator after 24 hours.


TIPS:

  • For best results when cutting out letters, do not remove the tip of the knife from the card stock to work around corners and curves. Instead, hold the tip down and pivot the paper to work around curves and angles.
  • My decorative scissors were from Fiskars and called “Majestic”.
