That idea sounds like it would make stupendous outsider art.

i have bunches and bunches of old magazines lying around, and im tired of making collages, is there any other way to use them?
id really like to use them as journals, but i dont want to write directly on the pages.

I don't know if this is any help, but me and my friends started this thing with magazine clippings. its a binder full of pix of clothes, make up, hairstyles, guyz, etc. we cut pix out and glued them onto paper then we make notes all over it like "cute skirt", "hes butt-ugly" "that colors looks bad on her" and stuff. we pass it around to our friends all the time and get new pplz to sign it. its really fun. just an idea!!

I have *no idea* how this was done, but it's soooooo cool looking and made of newspaper - so presumably mags would work too.

also check out pages 2 & 3 on the handbags section.

Anyone have any clue about this stuff?

No but I am willing to try--that's just too cool.  I especially like the bottle cap lamp.  What an easy way to make a cool and interesting light!  I wanted artificial fruit to put in these weird wire bowls my boyfriend's mom gave to me.  They're really cool but real fruit I put in the fridge to keep it fresh longer--plus I have dogs and they'll eat anything I put on the coffee table... so the paper fruit thing, i'm willing to try.  If anyone knows how, start a thread!!

it says that they cut newpaper into long strips, twist them, and weave them like baskets. sounds a bit to time consuming for me tho!! Undecided

You can make furniture out of corrugated cardboard, and then decoupage two or three layers of magazine pages over the top to get a sturdy, smooth surface.

The key to making cardboard furniture is to use at least four layers and turn the pieces so the corrugations of each new layer are at right angles to the previous layer.  Regular all purpose glue works fine both between the layers and to glue down magazine pages.  Cover the whole thing with a clear coat of laquer, spray acrylic or whatever.

You can make surprizingly sturdy tables, chairs, cupboards and other things with cardboard.  The finished furniture looks really heavy, with thick components since it's so many layers of cardboard, but it's very lightweight.

The easiest way to start is to make some simple stacking cubes or end tables.  Once you've worked with simple shapes, you can expand into very complex things and do faux finishes if you like.

I've used the cool pictures as wrapping paper before. My favorite was for my friends B-day I used all hot guy pictures.
I love making cards but I'm cheap too so I don't like buying all the scrapbook stuff or card embelishments. My catalogs/magazines have been shredded over and over again it seems.
