Hello Everyone ^^
Does anyone know the online store: The Large? (it's a Dutch company I think)
it's a company that sells Bandshirts, gothic things and fun things
anyway
When I heard of this challenge I immediately thought about those catalogues we get after we order something, the're bright and colourfull!
And I thought about something I saw online with a magazine. (don't know where I saw it anymore, it's been some time Cheesy)
So putting those things together Wink:
TADAAAA
A Multi Purpose Catalogue THING
I use as a lamp stand

and as a pinboard

You can even sit on it if you don't have enough chairs like me Cheesy

Tutorial:
For this project you only need 2 catalogues (in the shape of a magazine)
and 5 minutes of your spare time Wink + some paperclips

1. you start at the front of 1 catalogue, take 10-15 pages (you don't have to count them, just grab some Wink )
    and fold them to the left, DON'T make a fold in them, just gently put them on the left side ... (my english is not good if I want to explain something Cheesy)
    but just look at the pics Wink

2. do this for all the pages of your catalogue 'till it starts to look like this

3. you can fold the cover and the back (mostly heavier paper) over the first fold after it. (so in the other direction)
4. you've got now 1 part of your magazine thing Wink
5. do this again for the other magazine
6. put them together with the flat sides and add some paperclips at the top and the bottom to secure

and tadaaaa Cheesy

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!
