"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."

Books can take us on magical journies through time and space...opening doors to new worlds, introducing us to new characters, and giving us new outlooks on life.  They hold some of our favorite stories and tales, and they give us the power to scour the deepest regions of our imaginations.  While books are great for painting a visual world in our brains, they can also be used as physical decorations in our homes...with images and words literally popping out of the pages and adding color and style to our lives. 

With Artfolds brand books, you can create amazing book art by simply diving in and folding the pages of your favorite stories.  With lots of great classic books to choose from, including Sense and Sensibility and Anne of Green Gables, Artfolds books come with specialty shaded pages so you know exactly how to fold your pages to get the look you want.  There is also a line of colored books, giving you the ability to create colored images by folding book pages.

Easy to do in an hour or so, these books can be done by kids and adults, and you'll be wowed with the results!  Relaxing and rewarding, these Artfolds books are perfect for the artistic book lover!

To get a better idea of how Artfolds works, I decided to try the Random Acts of Caring book.  Part of the colored book line, this title gives you the tools to create a sweet pink heart with the colored pages within the book.  I love how it turned out!  This was so easy to do and was very theraputic and relaxing.  I was able to do it while I watched TV and, in about one hour, I had a new home accessory for my bookshelf!

Random Acts of Caring

Here's how Artfolds works...each page is highlighted with a gray guide (or a colored guide if you use the colored books).  You only work on the right-hand pages and you always fold the corners towards you.  All folding requires just 2 folds, the top corner will fold down and the bottom corner will fold up.  Both corners align with the colored bar that runs through the page, as you can see below.

Middle Line

Just work your way through the book and soon you'll be able to see your art come to life right before your eyes!
