I love it when I come across a CHEAP solution to a problem!!  Friends and Pinterest and friends ON Pinterest help to keep me creatively inspired!!  😉

Recently a friend pinned this pic. Cereal boxes turned magazine holders.  LOVE IT!!Cereal boxes are definitely something that I have a lot of!!  But for this stack of magazinesA cracker box is the perfect size!  Add some pretty paper and it’s craft time!!Start by cutting your box.Trace a front, back and two sides.  I also decided to do the inside so make sure to cut pieces for those.Once you have everything cut out grab some mid podge and start gluing.Inside and out.Done!!This is perfect for my office and I love having my little magazines out and accessible!!

Happy Crafting!

What a fun, clever, and inexpensive way to store magazines. I love it & I am going to “pin it” so I can remember it. Don’t you just love Pinterest?

Love it! I did something similar with existing magazine holders – one I grabbed from work, took home, made pretty, then brought back for my desk. If I have to be here, I want my workspace to look cute, darn it!
