Oh, my gosh! Thanks so much for posting this. My wife and I have needed to get some of these for our home, but everything is either ugly or overpriced.  Now, I can totally make some killer ones while recycling.
Eee! I'm so excited. Project!  Cheesy

Those are great!  I used to make them out of cereal boxes covered in comics, definitely not as snazzy and stylish as yours!  Saving the tut for future reference.  Great work!

I just stole an empty beer carton off my stepfather and now I have 3 magazine sized holders and one A5 notebook sized holder (i have so many layin around).. out of 1 beer carton! I'm going to cover them in contact instead of paper though (contact = adhesive paper).. unless I want to paint them.. but it can wait til I move house next week, ill use them to pack my magazines in boxes Smiley

I definitely need to make some of these! I've bought them in the past and they are absolutely overpriced!

I did something similar, but with a cover of maps, instead of fake wood.

However, I used 'wine boxes' for this. (can contain six bottles of wine)
They are aplenty in the supermarkets around here, they are more sturdy than the cereal boxes, and you can cut them down easily.

However, I like the curved design on the sides, the accessible large hole on the back and the patience to create fake wood.


No interesting signature yet........

I'm definitely going to do some of those with shelf paper (mactac) or wall paper!
Thanks so much! (and thanks for all the ideas from other craftsters too!!)

Cheap and free organization solutions are the stuff of dreams.

I did something similar, but with a cover of maps, instead of fake wood.

I love using maps as decor.  Great idea...
