DIY Recycled Magazine Box

This is a video I made in 2009 and uploaded on my YouTube channel. When I thought I was leaving YouTube for good, I deleted it. What was I thinking? I reuploaded it, and now all is right with the world! This is based on a box I saw at an Urban Outfitters that originally sold for $28. Since I already had all the supplies necessary, my version cost nothing. I used to use it to hold my magazines, but now I use it to store my makeup palettes.

Supplies

  • shoe box or photo box
  • hot glue gun (I used 4 glue sticks)
  • magazine pages
  • glue stick (I used two)
  • scissors
  • paint brush or makeup brush

    K-Red, I cannot wait to try making this box. This is such a wonderful idea and a lot cheaper than buying memory boxes, or ones like it. Thanks for posting. I’m deff. starting to make this tonight!

        You could use them on the lid of the box, or you could use them to craft dividers for your box.
