I found this project in Mark Montano's Big-Ass Book of Crafts, and fell in love with it instantly. Many many hours and many many little paper circles later I have a bathroom trash can made from recycled magazine pages. I'd like to use this technique to make more items for my home. Maybe some coasters or little storage boxes.


 
Looking down into it. The bottom is a big disk made from strips of paper coiled together and I filled in the center hole with a bead of hot glue.

That's awesome!  It's really beautiful. I've seen coasters like this before that look great.  Little storage boxes would be neat, too!

How strong/durable is it?

This is awesome! I'll have to agree with everyone else!!! Can you give us an idea of how it was constructed?

Well done! Way to recycle!
