I like to make envelopes out of them.
That's so easy peasy.
Another thing is to save them for collage work.
and you could make paper beads, too.
Paper beads are fun.

once a year i take all of my old magazine clippings and i buy a cheap notebook and lay them out. i call them "megazines" (dorky, i know) it's my practice for being a magazine editor... Roll Eyes

i've been doing it for 9 years now, so i'm on volume 8. i looked at volume one the other day, and i laughed at all the stupid crap i filled that book up with hehehe.

but people are catching on. i got my old roomate to do the same. she;s such a cutie

This is an excellent idea!! I like it.

The only purpose of the day job is to buy the craft supplies!! Cheesy  Seriously, I LOVE making personalized crafts. I now have a line of hand-crafted fans and notecards using the Zentangle (R) technique. I have also become a Certified Zentangle Teacher and teach other artforms and techniques.

I cannot wait to show my mom this....she is continually trying to convince me to throw out the boxes and boxes of magazines I have saved throughout the years...only to find out that I'm not alone in the magazine hoarding business!!!!! Woo hoo! Smiley

After breaking my leg I slowly started going through mine and pulling out the articles I wanted to keep and organized them into a binder...well 4 binders later and a healed leg (aka no more sitting in bed/no attention span!) i need to come up with something new...

love the idea of making envelopes...
did the magnet thing (my friends all make fun of how many I have, yet they all seem to want a set.....haha)
mod podge everything....
love making magazine beads...
still attempting to successfully make a magazine bowl!

i love, love, love that there are others out there like me...  Grin

i think everybody should like everybody.

I normally use it to wrap gifts and weave or layer to make storage boxes.

Some other uses that are fun is to use them to decorate boxes or frames, and even cover novels as book covers.

I am so going to start the scanning thing. I have loads of old magazines and clippings. They have just started taking up too much space and hubby says it's time to clear them out. Thanks for the great advice! Now to get my scanner connected to my pc. lol

I am loving this subject.  I have a million magazines and I truly do hate throwing things out.

I'm really happy to know I'm not the only one who clips! Everyone always makes fun of me when I get excited finding new magazines, knowing full well all I want to do is shred them apart. I have a huge box full of clippings, and another box full of pages that need clipped. I then go through every now and then and start to put them in order. I get sidetracked very easily, so I've got like 40 projects all started and none finished. Its pretty pathetic lol. I do keep all the craft ideas separate, and they are now in a little book. Every time I go through the box, I throw away the ideas I no longer feel are relevant or what I'm into now. I did recently find a box I"d clipped back in high school, and I had to laugh out loud at some of the stuff I was into. I did save it, they'll go into a 'memorabilia' album. I also clip pictures of food and such - they go into my recipe scrap box, as I've come up with some killer recipes based solely on what I can decipher from those photos!

I've also used magazine pages to make envelopes. I bought a package of 2x3 white sticker labels at Walmart, and use them for the address labels. I've got some really cute ones that I can't seem to make myself mail out lol!
