A New Home for the Magazines

When I got back from work tonight, I realized I needed to do something creative again. I enjoyed that a lot yesterday. I looked around my apartment and realized that since the other day when I changed my bathroom up a bit, my magazines were displaced.

They used to live here:

Magazines in the basket

Which was fine, but I needed a different home for them. And I obviously couldn’t have this on my coffee table (below):

a mess, I know

Ever since we started getting Time & Entertainment magazine subscriptions, our stack has steadily increased in height. And I haven’t read more than 2 of these so far!

A while back, I came across this PIN:

 

….and I realized tonight that this was what I could easily do without having to run out and buy supplies!

Sew Many Ways has a great tutorial for making these yourself that you should definitely check out! I just followed her simple step by step instructions. I had the cereal box and I found some extra scrap booking paper in my little craft box.

She says you can use tissue paper, fabric, wrapping paper, or even just paint. Get as creative as you want! I opted for thick paper and since I didn’t have any adhesive spray, I just used a hot glue gun. I also couldn’t find a ruler in our house (pathetic, I know!), so I kind of just eye-balled it.

Halfway there...with my supplies

I had a few little issues where the glue was drying a lot faster than I could press the paper down straight, and I cut a few sides just a tad too short, but overall, it was fun and super easy!

Here’s the finished product:

  1. I like this idea! We can’t keep magazines in our current bathroom, but when we get our guest room bathroom finished, I shall have to remember this. I think you have excellent taste, dear!
