I don't know if someone has posted it, but I found it yesterday and began to make them inmediately!

this comes from my thrifty nannie:   'tell her to make some trash cans"  her instructions are:
several magazines with pages cut out
elmers glue (it's what she used but i know there are better glues out there)
circular cardboard  (ice cream container from fast food resturants work real well) or small to medium box (i prefer boxes)
rubberbands (large to hold the pages onto the container of your choice until the glue dries)
beginning with one corner of the page roll it tightly into a tight tube use a small amount of glue to hold the roll in place. she would spend a day or so making the tubes then about an hour tweaking the rolls in place on the container.  after you apply the glue to the outer section she used a sharp knife to cut the points off the top and bottom so it would set flat.

I did this for my friend's birthday. Sorry I don't have pictures, my camera is retarded.

Anywho, here's what you do:

Take a spiral. You know, the ones you get at walmart for like, 50 cents. Pick a theme for the back. I used perfume bottles. Tape them onto the back on the journal. The front is a bit more complicated. Basically, you weave strips of magazine ads and tape them in place on the front of the spiral. It looked really cool, I'll try and get some pics later.

Personal swaps would be awesome.

You can use the paper to make some pretty spectacular 3d origami projects.  Course patience is key.  As, its take alot of time.  I have a book that shows how to make 3d dogs, cats, squirrels & all kinds of critters.   I spend hours making them because each animal over 300 pieces of paper.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

I cut up about half a mag and folded and wove it into a purse. It was so awesome when I finally figured out how they make em in Mexico! haha  Anyway, the magazine pages make a good practice run before moving on to the candy wrappers.

I made this no-cost paper bead necklace using Orange Juice Ads out of magazines that were lying around and a piece of leftover orange ribbon.

I made the paper beads by cutting the strips, applyed glue with a glue stick, rolled each bead up tightly then strung on the orange ribbon and tied the ribbon in a bow.

I'm not sure if it has been suggested allready, but if you're interested in origami, there's always 'lucky stars'
you can buy 'lucky star paper' online and in asian/craft stores,.. but its really just a fancy way to say 'we've pre-cut strips of paper approx. 1cm wide' Wink

I've marked and cut a bunch of pages at a time from a magazine i no longer had use for and made really pretty stars that had great colours/visual texture to them. Sort by colour, and bottle/bag. they make cute presents for those who are into them... I guess you could also thread them and make a mobile or garland of sorts...

I just read the entire thread (phew!) and i dont think ive seen anyone suggest this...
I have used a paste called 'image maker' in the past. its made by dylon and it transfers photocopies onto fabric and it apparently also works for magazines (please note i have only used photocopies in the past so i dont know how well magazines work) I think im going to try it with magazines....if i ever find my tub of image maker again!!!
here's a link if you're curious....
