The problem with magazines is that once you get through them cover-to-cover, you’re probably not going to pick them up again, and then you’re stuck with stacks of unused paper. Why not upcycle them? This awesome craft idea uses strips of magazine pages and a simple outline to create super unique pieces of art. You come up with the outline- a silhouette of someone’s face, your favorite shape, or maybe your home state. Once you’ve drawn it out on a nice, big piece of paper (or even a canvas), cut magazine pages in to strips and then trim the strips to sit inside your outline. Glue them down, and there you go!
