"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."

Autumn Blessings Frame

By: Denise O'Connor for Craftwell

Add some festive words to your Thanksgiving decorations this year.  This autumn blessings frame, made with your handy eCraft electronic die cutting machine by Craftwell, is a beautiful way to draw attention to the sole purpose of the fall harvest.

Autumn Blessings Frame

Materials:

  • Black Picture Frame
  • Matte Photo Paper printed with Digital Paper
  • Square 1
  • eCraft (used a pressure of 2 1/2, blade cap on, tabs off to get the kiss cut on the Square 1)
  • Adirondack Alcohol Inks in Butterscotch, Sunset Orange, Latte, Cranberry and Caramel, Gold Mixative and Alcohol Blending Solution on a felt pad with the Ink Blending Tool
  • Two pine cones and 1 small pumpkin

Instructions:

  1. Select a digital paper  that is a text background.  
     
  2. Print it out and add the saying on top of it using Century Gothic font.
     
  3. Use Square 1 and locate the leaves on the eCraft Fundamentals 1 SD card.  Cut out a few of each.  We did a “kiss cut” on the Square 1 like you would do for vinyl.

  4. Add a bunch of alcohol inks in various autumn colors onto a felt pad.  Using your ink blending tool, dab the colors onto the leaves.  Then go back and add some Gold Mixative and a little Alcohol Blending Solution to come up with the gorgeous colored leaves.  It only takes a few minutes for them to dry.

  5. If you want to make sure that the leaves don't get lost on the page, place the leaf down on your non-stick craft mat and gently ink the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
     
  6. Remove it from the craft mat and place it on the digital paper.
     
  7. Place the paper into a black picture frame and attach leaves, pine cones, and other decorations to the outside of the frame.

This is such a pretty project....I absolutely love the look of these leaves... They have a brilliance and irredescent look that is so unique and classy too. I am not sure about how to complete or carry out some of the techniques listed, but I still can certainly take some good inspiration from it! The pretty leaves, acorns and inspirational comment makes for a lovely project or gift!

I don't know what you mean by "Select a digital paper that is a text background." Do you mean print out some text?
