7 Things You Can Make with Recycled Magazines!

Hey everybody! I have tons of magazines laying around, and sometimes they just have to go! Instead of just throwing them away, why not make something new? Here’s a list of seven things you can make with some old magazines!

  • Make paper beads! I did this last week and it was a blast! After following some instructions (paperbeads.org) I made about twenty paper beads from old books and magazines with modpodge and a toothpick! I would actually be making more, but I’m waiting for my Bamboo Roller Kit to come in the mail!

  • Make a mailer! This is actually quite easy to do, but this tutorial will probably explain it better than me. Or you could even cover an old mailer with magazine paper too!

  • Make Art! Use a punch and create your own super cool piece of art like this one! Here‘s another.
  • Make Jewelry! Here are a few cute tutorials on making your own recycled paper jewelery! I actually made a candy wrapper bracelet!
  • Make Envelopes! I do this from time to time, and it’s actually quite fun! Just take apart an envelope and  make a tracing template out of it with a manila folder. Then cut it out and use it to trace onto magazine pages. Cut it out and then glue the sides to the bottom!

I hope you guys enjoy! (I think I can start to see the magazines start to fly off your shelves!)

    Thank you for the feature. I like your other posts as well, it is always a good thing when even young people are into recycling and reusing.
