really cool stuff. i'm not sure about alot of it, but on the handbags page there is a multicolored tote, and it looks like it is just pieces of soda can cut in squares with a small jump ring at each corner and then bigger jump rings holding each square together. the bag also appears to have a lining. i would think this would be fairly simple - tho VERY time consuming - to do. my only concern would be the jump rings - i have a hard time making them stay together sometimes and i would worry that the integrity of the bag would be compromised... and who on earth would want to solder each ring!!

old magazines are great for tripping over as they sit in piles on your floor! Grin other than that, make some wallets out of em, fold them into envelopes to have cool stationery or something like that

u could do what i did. i took some old teen magizines from 99 that i had and tore out some pages of men or whatever and used the pages as tissuse paper to stuff a gift bag for a friend or you could uses a fashion magizine and rip out the good stuff and wrap gifts.

Other then that, i dont know, im still trying to figure out what to do w/ my magizines too. Right now im just tearing words and letters out and posting ransom looking phrases all over my walls.

I saw a cute tote bag made from old Rolling Stone magazines (and some made from sheets of newspaper) in a store here a few days ago. It looked like the outside sheet on each side was laminated and then stacked with maybe 6 sheets of magazine pages and then sewed together with a zig zag stitch to make a bag.

Edit: Whoops, I didn't realize there was a thread about it.

i'm not sure what you mean about making furniture.  Huh

are you talking about decoupaging?  if you just want to decoupage magazine pictures onto a piece of furniture, say a table, paint a layer of modpodge on, put the picture down, and paint over it again.  keep doing that until you feel like you're done.  you can also add glitter.

if you are talking about actually making furniture from magazines - i have never heard of that, but now i want to know how, too!

I have a ton of photo boxes...  plain white photo boxes.   I used to keep my photos in them (duh) until I could sort through them for scrapbooks and whatnot.

I keep clippings from magazines in those.   I have one for an inspiration book I'm making (I'm a writer, and studying to be a Creative Writing teacher...  inspiration book = good) and the others are filling with magazine and newspaper clippings, stickers, and whatever else I find that can be useful.   They're all decoupaged and pretty, so they make a good decoration, even though they're stacked in a corner of my room.

I find that with hanging files, the magazine pages tend to curl and then they're just not as pretty.   Yes, I realize that with glue they uncurl, but I'm insane.

It's late, and I've been wondering...  How I can stay awake so long and miss so much...

The scanning is a good idea-r.

I keep a little box in my purse so that I can put scraps and things that strike my fancy in there, it works well, just as long as you empty out the box every once and a while.

Yes, I state the obvious.

I have a couple of shoeboxes with mag clippings, tags, etc.  For ideas from websites, I print the instructions out and use a 3-hole punch and put them in my DIY binder!  Pictures are all in a box until I get them in albums.  Craft supplies have a home in plastic bins...

I can do personal swaps!  ^_^
