Grin i really like how these boxes turned out.
i made rolls out of magazine paper.
first i cut one page into 3 parts
then i rolled each strip diagnolly and end it with a bit of glue. make as many rolls as u like!
then i cut out a square cardboard base
then stuck 4 rolls in the square outline (cut the length of roll as required)
then stick 2 opp rolls in alternate layers
repeat till satisfied!


pls post comments  Grin

Alright here we goes!  Wink

pick any magazine of your choice! tear out the pages! rip the book apart! go on! you know you want to!

approximately cut each page into 3 longitudinal parts...which would look like this

yes it is cosmo that i have destroyed Cheesy

make your choice of weapon! ok in this pic i've used a knitting needle size 10 (bear with country differences please) but try to use some kind of rod that's really really thin

place it at a slight angle at one corner of the paper. now we begins to roll!!

slowly!! (till u get a hang of it)

continue to roll till almost the end. then grab your trusty gluestick and apply on edge like so

excuse strange hand configuration as i was trying to balance my cam  Tongue

and now! we remove the roll! (by the way i forgot to mention earlier DO NOT ROLL PAPER TOO TIGHT  or else you will not be able to remove it) Roll Eyes

yay! now add to ever growing pile of happy rolls! and admire!  Shocked

it's really pleasant to look at all the rolls together and play with them! the best part is you can do it in your spare time like just a couple of rolls in a couple of minutes, and store them for your amazing future projects!!! yay!!! Grin

since i'm click happy this here is another box i made, that i TRIED to weave in some strange fashion. but hey it looks good to me!

oh and don't forget to put the cover back on your gluestick!!! hehehe!

those are really a good idea! very pretty and fairly easy to make, id assume.

all we were searching for was someone or something to believe in. i guess that's why we got each other.

hehehe thank u all!

yeah maddiekins they are SuperEASY, and definitely fast once u r done making the rolls heehee

hey wreathgirl, i would say it's somewhat sturdy. most important thing to do is to let the glue dry completely,else the rolls come off (personal experience! Roll Eyes

i know for a fact i can stack other stuff on top of the box. i keep cds in it and stationery i'm too lazy to keep in its "proper place"

but i think the best thing to do to make it strong is to put some clear varnish on it, it would harden the box!
u can use a colour theme also i guess
also instead of making a box, u could just decorate a box with the rolls...

have fun working on this project u craftsters!  Cheesy

could you not also make a lamp?  I've seen them made out of craft sticks, wouldn't the magazine rolls work just as well?

just an idea.  awesome usage of old mags.  gotta try 'em!


glitter is the herpes of crafts. once it gets on you, it never goes away!
