So, I finally decided to put my old shoeboxes to use and give this tutorial a whirl that I found when browsing the web the other day..
The completed project!
This is the shoebox after I decorated the inside (with all of my paper scraps, so this project is 100% recycled with nothing left over!) My cat wanted to help, so he pressed down the glued papers on the inside
The inside of the box. You can see the sides of the rolls. Some of the rolls were higher than the sides of the box, but I think it makes it look more abstract/artsy that way!
My next project is my boyfriend's phone box. I got the inside and sides done...
Now, I'm debating on whether or not to just paint the top of the box or add some more rolls to it.
And here is the link to the tutorial. http://www.wonderhowto.com/how-to-make-urban-outfitters-recycled-magazine-holder-376731/
I've found other tutorials for this project, but this was the simplest and funnest one I've found!
Thanks for looking!
