Upcycle Old Magazines

I’m discovering new uses for all those old magazines that are collecting dust under my coffee table. One of the ideas I saw somewhere online at some point are these envelopes that I made for the handmade cards (previous post):

The envelopes are definitely cute, but there are so many other uses for these magazines as well. In fact, I didn’t think about how to wrap my sisters gift and I found an old birthday bag around the apt when cleaning, so I dropped it in there. I didn’t have any tissue paper, so I grabbed a few pages of the magazine, and glue them to together to make large pieces, and just then just used that as “tissue paper” filler for the bag.
You can also just cut out pieces from pages and use them to decorate cards instead of fabric as we did during craft day.
Just channel your inner school-aged child, and wa-lah! What’s old is new again.
