once a year i take all of my old magazine clippings and i buy a cheap notebook and lay them out. i call them "megazines" (dorky, i know) it's my practice for being a magazine editor... Roll Eyes

i've been doing it for 9 years now, so i'm on volume 8. i looked at volume one the other day, and i laughed at all the stupid crap i filled that book up with hehehe.

but people are catching on. i got my old roomate to do the same. she;s such a cutie

lol thats actually a cute idea... its almost like a diary in away because you can look back at it years later and see what its like, thats with me and my old diarys haha i never use them but i always would take one on my trips with me{i had like 5} and i had a diary whan i was like 5 and i could not spell at all lol i was reading and im like "what the heck was i trying to say?" haha
so for your "magazine" what would you write in it? like would you only cut out pictures and write an article about it  or would you just put in articles from magaines and then right about?

what a great idea! i love at the moment how big hair is in - like backcombed quiffs and messy chignons - at the moment i've contented myself with decorated the inside of my files for college - it is a bit distracting though - ie i should be working but i'm too busy longing after an outfit/ being able to do a hairstyle etc Smiley

I found the coolest pic of a winning soccer team, running across the field without their pants to celebrate their victory. A shot from "behind" it was. I decoupaged it onto a square ashtray and call it my "butt" tray. Had it for years and people keep trying to steal it! Grin I hope the pic isn't offensive.


I WANT a butt tray!!!!!   Wink  I will have to look for a good "behind" picture for it...

I like this idea!

I' recently cleaned out my magazines and I cut up a punch of stuff to make paper beads.  They come out really interesting if you cut them in triangle, wrap them around a wooden kabob skewer (with glue) and then cover with clear nailpolish.

clear nail polish? i didn't know that! i tried the paper bead things once and it turned out really baaad... like the glue made the bead sticky and would come apart and everything so the nailpolish would really seal it, thanks for the idea!

my cubemate and i made origami cranes from the tons of old magazines from work. we hung them with thread and taped them to the ceiling. they sway gently in the a/c breeze.

Yeah that's been my experience.  I used regular Elmer's glue to make my beads, and after some trial and error of putting too much on I found that if I put enough glue to hold the bead together with a little extra to make sure the ends stuck down then covered it in clear nailpolish the bead held up pretty well.

My beads turned out pretty hard and seem pretty sturdy so I guess the method I used worked.

I just read every post in here (I have no life I know!) and let me tell ya...I love all these ideas.  I have 4 totes of mags that I've been sifting through.  I ended up getting those huge photo albums (with the peel back pages) and taking all articles I wanted and posting them in there.  It got so bad, I ended up with 6 3-ring binders with clear page protectors and 2 more albums.  Then I went on an ebay binge and I just received 70 vintage mags from the 70's and over 200 Cosmo, Scrapbooking, Paper Craft, Self, Marie Claire, and tons of wedding mags.

What I'm tentatively planning is an "inspiration wall"  I want to take pictures and clippings to just post all over one of my walls (the one that isn't covered by wall hangers/windows/doors/shelves).  So far, I have tons of stuff.  I already have shoe boxes filled with cute pics and quotes that I haven't gone through for my wall but I'm hoping to get that done after the holidays.

i just read all 11 pages of this thread. it was exciting! haha. ive made collages with my mags. I made color themed ones (8 i think) then i made a hot girls, hot guys, sex themed, and one with mostly words that are negative cuz i was sooo angry at something and it made me feel alot better afterwards. now i keep picture clipping from mags in an acordian file and the articles and whatnot in just a folder. i havent gone thoroughly through all my mags but i have quite a few. i mostly get pictures of women outta them because i like to draw and they make good references for poses and lighting and whatnot.
im digging the envelope idea though! i think after im done reading on this site time going to make a bunch and send xmas cards or random letters to people.
and i definitely want to try that decoupaged shoe idea. there werent many replies to that but it would be super cool.

I have to say I am new to Craftster and I am completely amazed at all of the great ideas that are out there.  It can be a little oerwhelming, exciting, but overwhelming.  I'm still excited over the pattern idea on the first post.  I certainly get in my nitches and have bought the same pattern before.  Hooray!  And thank you to eeryone for all of your wonderful ideas and tips.
