Roll the magazine pages from corner to corner, then use the rolls to decorate any number of things. I'm currently in the planning stages of decorating a hope chest with them.  I'd love to share when I'm done with it!  Hope this gives you the inspiration you need to rid yourself of those hundreds of magazines!

You take one page at a time and roll lenthwise into a tube or straw like shape. You then flatten them out into thick strips and roll each one of those end to end to form circles. Glue them well and let them dry. Then you blow up a balloon and starting from the bottom you glue each little circle 3/4 of the way up the balloon gluing well as you go. You give that a long time to dry all the way then pop the balloon.

You can also glue it around the underside of a kitchen bowl.

I too collect old magazines. I don't have much of a stash yet, but I'm working on it. I want to make paper beads.

Here are some instructions on making paper beads and some good pics:

This is a really cool 3D star. Look three quarters of the way down the page for the star made out of old book pages, but any paper could be used. I think I might use sheet music or magazine pages in pretty colors:

This is a magazine page bowl with lid. They are very sturdy and pretty.

this star is done in sheet music, but any paper could be used

spiky 'star'. This is done in plain white paper, but could be done in any paper. It would make a good christmas ornament or just home decor

Spiky bow for package

Bigger, more decorative spiky star. I would use double thick magazine pages for this. (I am actually going to make some out of the cardboard from old cereal boxes. Paint them, then cover in pretty paper. You could use pretty magazine cutouts for this.)

If you have never been on Pinterest you should check it out!! This is where I got a lot of these ideas. You can just type in magazine pages to see different things. I even saw a small shelf with doors made out of rolled and stacked magazine pages. I couldn't find this pic unfortunately.

I hope some of this helps.

You may also create paper beads using the very colorful pages of the magazine Wink

Also you may use these to decoupage old tin cans, etc Smiley)
