Postal boxes are essential for any business. They are a way for you to easily and quickly collect and distribute your mail, which is crucial for keeping your operations running smoothly. But what if you don’t have a postal box at your disposal? What if you don’t have the money to invest in one? Or what if you simply don’t want to take the time to make one yourself? Fear not! In this blog post, we will show you how to make your own white postal box using just a few simple materials. By following these steps, you will be able to create an inexpensive and efficient postal box that will suit your needs perfectly.
What You’ll Need
What You’ll Need:
– A piece of cardboard or a paper plate
– A permanent marker
– A hole punch
– Ribbon or fabric glue
– Mailbox key (optional)
1. Decide where you want your postal box to go. Many people like to put their postal boxes in the hallway or near their front door. If you don’t have a specific spot in mind, you can just make your box wherever is most convenient for you.
2. Draw a basic outline of the box on your cardboard or paper plate with a permanent marker. Try not to get too detailed – you’ll be able to easily erase it later if needed.
3. Cut out the outline with scissors. Be sure to cut all the way around the edges of the cardboard or paper plate so it’s a perfect fit for your mailbox!
4. Punch a hole near one end of each side of the cardboard or paper plate, opposite from where you punched the holes in step 2. This will let your ribbon or fabric glue through and hold the sides of the cardboard together while it dries.
5. Glue one side of the ribbon or fabric down along one edge of each hole in step 4, making sure that it covers all of the glue residues from step 4. Do this on both sides of the cardboard or paper plate. Allow time for the glue to dry completely before moving on to step
6.6. Cut a piece of fabric or ribbon the same size as the one you glued down in step 5, and glue it down along the other side of each hole in step 4. Be sure to leave enough extra fabric or ribbon hanging off each side of the cardboard or paper plate to tie it securely closed once you’ve finished.
7. Take your mailbox key and attach it to one side of the ribbon or fabric so that it hangs down below the other side of the ribbon or fabric. Now take your mail and put it inside the box, making sure to fit it snugly against the sides of the cardboard or paper plate. When you’re done, tie a knot in the excess ribbon or fabric hanging off each side of the box, and voila! You’ve got yourself a brand-new postal box!
How to Make the Box
Making your own white postal box is a simple and cost-effective way to spruce up your mailbox and add a little personality to your residence. All you need are some supplies and a few minutes of your time.
First, identify the location of the post box on your property. You will need to measure the height, width, and depth of the space available. Once you have these measurements, create a sketch or drawing of the box on some paper before proceeding.
Next, gather all of the necessary supplies: a paintbrush, painter’s tape, cardboard box, power drill, screws and nails (preferably 8d), and white paint (or any other light color).
Start by painting the exterior of the cardboard box with white paint. Make sure to cover all sides of the container with a thin layer of paint in order to prevent glare from reflecting off of the metal post boxes nearby. Once the entire surface has been covered, remove any excess paint with a brush or cloth.
Now it’s time for the fun part: drilling holes into both end panels of the cardboard box using the power drill. Make sure to drill evenly around each hole so that they are slightly smaller than screws and nails. When finished drilling, insert screws and nails into each hole until they are fully seated. Be careful not to over-tighten!
Finally, hang your newly made postal box in front of your post box and enjoy its sleek new look!
Tips for Making a White Postal Box
1) If you are painting your postal box the traditional color of USPS, you will need to prime and paint both sides of the box.
2) If you are using a white postal box as a planter, it is important to seal all the cracks with wood glue and then coat the entire surface with a clear coat.
3) You can also use white postal boxes to store small items such as jewelry or office supplies. Simply hang them on peg boards or inside an organizer.
4) If you would like to create a custom Postal Box Letter Holder, follow these easy steps:
-Measure each letter holder piece using a string or ruler and cut out using scissors or a craft knife
-Once all pieces have been cut out, trace around each piece onto cardstock. Make sure to get in between the lines so that your letters are nicely spaced out
-After tracing around each letter holder, cut out the letters using scissors or a craft knife
-Using glitter spray paint, apply several coats of glitter to each letter holder
-Once all letter holders have been decorated with glitter, let them dry completely before assembling
