Today we’re going to make a gorgeous gift out of something you have laying around your apartment: old magazines.

Day 4: Recycle a Pretty Magazine 


1. An old fashion magazine
2. Scissors
3. Tape

Begin by taping together your favorite pages from any magazine. For the box, make sure to align the edges and then lay down your piece of tape. Make one giant sheet of wrapping paper by taping together several pages of the magazine paper. Once you have your desired look, you’re in the clear to begin wrapping your gift. For the bow, take a small square or rectangle and fold it in half. Now, cut 3/4 of the way down multiple times to make a mini fringe strip. Form a cylinder by rolling the edges together and tape to secure. Cut the smooth base into four sections so it can lay flat and be taped down onto the present.  Now pull back each fringe to make it a big, fun, and unique topper.
