DIY Recycled Magazine Organizer Box

6920 ratings | 1585871 views
Skip to 0:25 to get to the action and skip to 6:06 to see the finished project! See the magazine box I found at Urban Outfitters circa 2008/2009: http://goo.gl/QwABN2 Share a photo of your creation on my Facebook page, and I will add it to my Fan Photos album: http://www.facebook.com/modernmartha I filmed this video in 2009 and uploaded on my YouTube channel. When I thought I was leaving YouTube for good, I deleted it. What was I thinking? I reuploaded it in 2011, and now all is right with the world! This is based on a box I saw at an Urban Outfitters that originally sold for $28. Since I already had all the supplies necessary, my version cost me virtually nothing. I used to use it to hold my magazines, but now I use it to store my makeup palettes.

wow! this is amazing! I wish I had a bunch of magazines to make a colorful box like this! But alas, I'm not very big on magazines cuz I hardly ever read them anyway...and my only magazine subscription expired awhile back... I only order magazines through school fundraisers and I haven't gotten any more from nieces and nephews lately :(

+Modern Martha by Kelsey I did think of that, but they charge almost as much, if not more than it costs to order the magazines around here!  I might snatch some from my mom's house.  She has so many she'd never notice if a few disappeared!
Kelsey Smith (3 years ago)
+babylover0990 check out the thrift store, see if they have any old, cheap magazines.

Thanks for the advice.
Honest Lee (3 years ago)
Non-sense work and lots of time consuming. Total waste even for watching!
Tesha Miller (1 year ago)
Modern Martha by Kelsey you handled that very well. And I love the box. I'm going to make some to hold some of my kiddos favorite books, and art supplies. although I will say the actual shoebox print was cute too. lol. have a wonderful day sweetheart. 😉
Tesha Miller (1 year ago)
Honest Lee there's always a rude one. you're entitled to your opinion, just know this is for ppl who like to craft and don't really mind the busy work. I find it's awesome for relieving my anxiety, because rolling the paper keeps my hands from being idol, and it helps me focus on something other than the anxiety triggers. It may be just the opposite for someone else, everyone is different, but our differences shouldn't cause us to be unnecessarily rude to one another. Have a better day.

+Honest Lee You don't have to talk like that on the Internet; this isn't polite.

That is a great use for old shoe boxes and very cool looking. I think I will make one and maybe add a bit of bling across the top of the tubes of paper and see how that looks, thanks for the tutorial x

Its cute but thats a lot of work
Kika Mal (4 years ago)
Great #papercraft  project for #upcycling  magazines and old shoe boxes! I have an abundance of both so I would really love to try this, as soon as I find my hot glue gun which has mysteriously disappeared! #rollingpaper   #paperart

It's hard to say because I only used the colorful pages out of several magazines. If I wasn't picky, I'd best one, maybe two, would do it.

Skin product companies would like individuals to try their new products to demonstrate their effectiveness. Have you ever seen a skin care area set-up in your local mall offering free test products? Well you must check out this website that will send free test products to your home, its the best way to get free skincare products :) You can get them here bit.ly/1bfF8ta?v=fiitj
