Do you have a hack (without wood) to make various size boxes that are sturdy enough to hold maybe 15-20 11x15 matts with prints-- for a "folio box". They are so expensive to buy, and this will also add a customized/persaonlized box for my photography clients. Thanks!!

Lovely work! I especially like that finishing touch of edging the flowers with gold leaf.
