Calling all magazine hoarders! This DIY craft is just for you. It is a simple guilt free way to get rid of all your old magazines.
- Old Magazines
- A Big Clip
Start with a page from an old magazine. Fold the page at about a quarter inch thickness until it has a little bulk to it. Glue the edge and cut off the remaining page. I don’t recommend using the whole page, it just gets too thick.
Next, take the strip of paper and roll it into a circle.
Continue making strips and rolling them until you reach your desired diameter for your box.
To keep it from unrolling, use a big clip while the glue is still drying.
Roll a strip that is about an inch thick or so. Glue it to your roll. You’ll now have what looks like a lid. To give it more support. Make thinner strips and glue them to the outside of the thicker strip.
Start the process again for the bottom of the box, however, make it slightly smaller so the lid will fit on it.
Next, do the same with the bottom as you did with the lid in Step 5. However, don’t go all the way to the top with the smaller strips. This will create a little ledge for the lid to rest on.

Wow… Pretty cool little project! Perhaps I’ll make one with all of the credit card offers that get sent to my house!
Such a great idea!!! I’ll definitely try this out. I’ve also come across this really cool chair back idea that I want to try. Such great ways to add character to any apartment!
Very impressive, thanx for sharing!
