They pile up and up and up. Magazines are plentiful all year long but this time of year it’s just downright crazy. We got in a glut of magazines the other day. All with Christmas ads. Magazines that will just end as fire starter or going to recycling. But there has to be a better use for some of it….right?
And you’re going to help me come up with creative ideas of things to do with all these holiday magazines. Why would you want to do that? The winner will get a $40 to spend at Spunky Eclectic. And you get to decide the winner.
Here’s the scoop:
Take all the magazines you have lying around and that you are willing to tear into and get creative. Do something good with them. Something decorative for the upcoming holiday season or something lasting, something that you can gift. Anything cool that doesn’t mean the magazines are heading into the trash pile.
Have it done by December 5th. Come back to this post and post a link to what you did. If you used a known tutorial please post a link to that tutorial. If you came up with the idea yourself, a tutorial would be awesome so we all can recycle too.
December 10th’s Want Not Waste Not Wednesday post will have a link to all the entries and a way for every one to vote. Why does anyone want to vote? One of the voters will be chosen at random to receive a prize as well! Everyone will get one week to vote and then I’ll tally up the winner. Not to get all sappy, but if we participate we’re all winners because we’re recycling.
I wanna see what you come up with :)
Here’s mine (though my entry doesn’t count in the contest, I’m just bringing you some inspiration)
We cut out strips of yarn samples in yarn magazines:
Then we looped them all together in one of those chain garlands.
Miss 8goingon20 helped me put it together. It was a fun activity for the 2 of us to do together. Now it graces the doorway of my shop.
