Recycling Cardboard Cereal Boxes into Magazine Holders
For this you will need large cereal boxes, scissors, an exacto knife or razor knife, craft glue, old magazines, fabric, or heavy wrapping paper. **Note: White glue is not the same as craft glue, and is too thin for these projects.
Start by cutting the top off the cereal boxes. With a pen or fine tip marker, draw a line all the way around the box 3 inches up from the bottom. Then draw a diagonal line across the front and back of the cereal box from a top corner to the edge of the bottom line, as shown to the left
Cut along the diagonal lines on the front and back of the cereal box, then across the bottom line on the side of the box, and remove.
You can now either decoupage the box with pictures cut from the magazines, or cover the box with fabric, or heavy wrapping paper. Put your magazines into the box, with the spines showing, and you have a nifty magazine holder.
