100 Crafts Using Old Magazines
Posted 19 August 2012 - 01:06 AM
I know you guys probably read digital magazines or recycle all your magazines, but just in case some of you still have some magazines lying around, I found this blog post with 100 suggestions for crafts that can be made from old magazines. I like to make stuff and I thought some of these ideas looked fun so I'm just sharing the link. I like making my own envelopes from magazines because the envelopes you make from magazine or calendar pages look a lot cooler than the white ones that people buy. Just take apart a junk mail envelope, trace around it on to a magazine page with a beautiful picture, cut the envelope shape out and assemble it with a glue stick using the old envelope you took apart as a template to see where to fold.

A friend of mine made some paper beads before and shared the idea with me and they have a look. It just feels good to take something you would have thrown away and make something useful from it. Thanks for sharing.

I do like donating magazines I've read to schools for craft projects, summer camps or office waiting rooms of non-profits. These kinds of places are always in need of donations.

I am in awe of people's creativity. Take a look at this waste basket that was from one of the links. I don't think I'd have the patience, especially if the paper kept uncoiling. But, it does come out quite nicely, don't you think?
