"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."

Easter..."Oops"

By: Cindy Groom Harry for STYROFOAM Brand Foam

Oops, bunny fell into the basket looking for those last few Easter eggs. The fun surprise with this Easter decorating craft is that bunny is hiding an air freshener.

Easter...Oops

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM Brand Products:
    • 1- 2-3/8" Long Eggs
    • 1-4" Ball
  • 1-The Dial Corp. Renuzit® Adjustable Air Freshener
  • 1- 4" Clay Pot, 3 1/2" High
  • Acrylic Paint: White, Pink
  • Natural Sea Sponge
  • Felt: 1-1" x 5 1/2" Piece Pink; 1- 6"x 9" Piece White
  • 1- 2" White Pom
  • Green Paper Crimps
  • Low-temp glue gun & glue sticks
  • Serrated knife
  • Metal spoon
  • Paint brush
  • Tracing paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Toothpicks
  • Paper towels

Steps:

  1. FLOWER POT: Dip damp sea sponge in Pink paint. Blot excess off on paper towel. Lightly sponge paint pot; let dry. Repeat process using White paint. Cut paper crimps into approximately 3" lengths. Apply glue to inside top edge of clay pot. Press ends of paper crimps into glue, allowing paper crimps to drape over clay pot edge. Place Renuzit® Air Freshener in clay pot. Trace bottom of pot onto white felt, cut out, trim if needed and glue to pot.
     
  2. BODY: Using metal spoon, carve out inside of ball of STYROFOAM to fit on air freshener. Paint body White; let dry. Place body onto topper.
     
  3. TAIL: Trim one end of pom to make flat surface and glue to body, centered above feet. Trim top of pom if necessary.
     
  4. FEET: Cut foam egg in half lengthwise for feet. Using back of metal spoon, round cut edges of egg. Use spoon to shape three toes on large round end of each foot. Paint feet White; let dry. From white felt, cut two feet according to pattern. Glue to bottom of feet and trim as necessary. From pink felt, cut two large foot pads and six small foot pads according to patterns. Position and glue to bottom of feet. Poke toothpick into top of feet. Position feet onto body just above pot rim, approximately 1 1/2" apart; secure with glue.
     
  5. GEL REPLACEMENT: When the original gel is depleted, simply replace with a new air freshener. For future projects: if your project base is decorated, remove dried gel. From a new container, remove new, non-toxic gel, then slip it over the post of the decorated base and reposition the decorated topper.
