Five Crafty Ways to Reuse Magazines
Oh, magazines. No matter how I try to keep you out of my life, you seem to claw your way back in. Whether it’s my husband’s gaming mags or issues that friends and family give me to read, those glossy wastes of paper seem to pile up in my house. Luckily, between my own crafty ideas and projects for my crafting class, there are plenty of ways to give those colorful pages a new life rather than tossing them into the bin.
1. Magazine Page Envelopes
The cover of the magazine works best for this, but if there’s an inner page that you really like, you can always glue stick a second page to reinforce it before you start folding. The Paper Mill has a great collection of envelope templates that you can use. Just keep your magazine’s page size in mind when choosing a template.
Worried that your address info won’t show up on your colorful envelope? Use sticky labels to make the addresses pop!
