Well, sort of.  Tongue

I have probably thousands of magazine clippings not to mention the magazines that have yet to be rooted through and destroyed by me! I really wanted to make a magazine bowl, but because I know how short my own attention span is I decided to make a small container. I wanted to use the same technique as the bowls, but after creating the base and realizing how much time it took alone to do a base, I came up with another idea and this was the result:

It's about 6" tall and 4" in diameter and I have no idea what I'm going to put in it!



Here's the lid by itself, the base is essentially the same as the lid, minus the lip/edge work.


The main part of the base: I rolled tubes in bright colors and then weaved black and white inbetween them to add interest:

Here's an inside view of the container, any leftover of the b/w paper strips I just glued on the inside of the container for added support.


Thanks for looking!

Great recycling.  I love that it's different from what I've already seen.  Good job.

That is really cool! I like the idea of upcycling magazines like this and your project is really unique.

Very nice!  The tubing probably makes it more stable than the paper bowls I have tried to make.  The lid makes a nice touch too.

Great job!  It looks really sturdy.  I like the black and white contrast pieces.

Very nice job!

With all these great projects using magazines, I'm getting inspired!

Yours reminded me of a trash can I made my momma in VBS over 40 years ago. We rolled the magazine pages and glued them to a huge ice cream carton. (they were round back then, lol.)  Anyway, when momma passed on I was going thru her things and found that she still had it. And it was still stuck together.  Never under-estimate Elmers Glue!
