"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."

Bow Holder Frame

By: I Heart Naptime

It's easy to misplace bows and hair clips. A Bow Holder Frame is a great option if you want to keep all of your accessories in one place. This is a cute and girly upcycled idea from Jamielyn Nye that little girls will love.

Bow Holder Frame
 

Materials:

  • Large frame
  • Spray paint
  • Cotton Batting
  • Scissors
  • Fabric
  • Hot Glue gun
  • Ribbon
  • Velcro dots
  • Ric rac

Directions:

  1. Find a large frame and remove the picture and cardboard. Keep the cardboard. That will be your backing. Then give the frame a few coats of spray paint.
     
  2. Next you will need to find some cotton batting that will cover the entire cardboard. I think I doubled the batting if I remember right. Then you will fold the batting over the cardboard and hot glue it down. Trim off any excess batting to remove bulk.

  3. Next you will need to buy enough fabric to cover the entire board.

  4. You will begin by folding the fabric over the cardboard and hot gluing it down.

  5. When you get to the corners, make a diagonal cut.

  6. Then fold in the other side and glue. Once your fabric is all glued down you’ll need to start gathering some ribbon.

  7. Measure and cut your ribbon accordingly and then glue on the back side of the cardboard.

  8. I placed velcro dots on the ric rac to hang my velcro flowers. I make most of my flowers and place a velcro dot on the back of them, so I can interchange them.

  9. I also found this at goodwill for a dollar and thought it would be perfect to hang headbands. All I did was spray paint it blue and then distressed the edges a little. I’ve also seen these at crafts stores for 3 or 4 bucks. So with a coupon only 2 bucks. Not bad!
