If you are anything like me, you have magazines everywhere. I have stacks and stacks around my house and it makes my OCD twitch. I don’t want to spend the $10 for the lovely magazine holders that places like Target sell, even though they would control my chaos. Instead, I decided to come up with something that was not only frugal, but a little green as well.
Repurposed Magazine Holders
Enter cereal box magazine holders to save the day! To make each of these repurposed magazine holders it only cost me about .25 cents. That beats $10 a piece any day! Want to give it a whirl? Here’s what you need to do
Large Cereal Box
To get started, make sure your cereal box is empty and clean. Don’t want any breakfast goodies left in your magazine holder.
Next, cut off the top flaps of the box. Make sure to use the box cutter so you get clean lines
Then you are going to work by cutting the sides.
Start at the top of the and measure about 2 inches horizontally. Make a dash mark to mark your spot.
Once you finished on the first side, repeat it on the second side until you can cut it all out so your whole magazine holder looks like this on both sides!Now that you are done cutting it out, you can decorate it however you want! I use contact paper to cover the outside. You can get a ton of great designs to match your decor, plus it helps make the box a little more sturdy!There you have it your finished magazine holder, and it is so much more personal and less expensive than buying the ones you find at big box stores
