I have a ton of old music magazines from the early 2000's when I used to subscribe to Spin and Alternative Press that I've just been holding onto. I finally decided to go through them and make some use out of the articles:








The lid on the last box was dinged so I added images inside too.

That's a great use for old magazines.  Those boxes definitely look high-end now!  This project kind of makes me regret putting out a huge stack of my mags for recycling Tuesday morning . . .

These ones I put up in my Etsy shop, I have one that I made myself years ago that I keep photos in.

These are really neat!  Do you do a lot of decoupage of wood?  I did one on the sliding cover of a box, but the cover warped and was unusable.

Only one of the boxes I did was wood and I noticed that it definitely bubbled more than the others. It could be because I coated it with acrylic glitter paint before Mod Podge because the Tegan & Sara box didn't bubble at all. It is much easier to find cardboard boxes than wooden boxes. This one I happened upon at a thrift store.
