Recycled Magazine Storage Box

Using items from your recycling bin, you can turn a plain old cardboard box into a decorative storage bin like Gay from It’s A Hodgepodge Life did. Gay rolled a bunch of magazine pages and attached them to her box and then created a no-sew burlap liner to make the inside as beautiful as the outside. This is just one of many fun creations you can make from rolled magazine pages!

Gay was inspired by the IMAX Alaina Recycled Magazine Basket sold by Wayfair.

When I try to go to the tutorial, I click on the link and it says you must be invited. Are there any other tutorials for this or is this for a limited audience?

Unfortunately, it does look like this tutorial can only be viewed by invitation now. I am sorry for the inconvenience.

When you click on the link to go to the tutorial a message pops up saying that this blog is by invitation only. Perhaps a link to a valid page is in order?

Super clever and it looks great! I saw these being sold in stores everywhere this past summer but was not willing to pay $50 ! This actually looks so much better and for a fraction of the cost :) Nicely done.

I'll take free over $50 any day! ;)
