How-To: Repurposing Your Magazines


Since it's eco chic month, I can't tell you to avoid reading all of your favorite fab fashion magazines (or shelter magazines), but I will give you a few tips on what to do with your mags when you've finished. It's always nice to pass them along to friends, but if your friends aren't eco-conscious, it's likely they'll end up in a landfill. So, here are a few suggestions on what to do with your light reading when it starts to get heavy.

There are many, many more where these came from, so

I love the box idea. I might try this as gift packaging.

I rip out the info I want to keep and pretty pictures. I use makeup and hair pictures to keep for inspiration. It's the best way to get rid of stacks of magazines. Just keep them filed away in organized piles.

Hey CasaSugar do you what happened to my comment? A few of mine have been flagged for review lately and I can't figure out why.

I used to make the envelopes when I was in high school and sending letters! I'm sure the post office thought I was crazy! They were so cute though!

I always recycle & reuse my mags. Reuse: Crap Packages (tm): envelopes full of torn-out magazine articles and ads, and printouts from internet; sent to my best friends for some fun light reading on the airplane or just after a hard day's work. I provide written "commentary" in the margins & on photos, w/an extra-fine Sharpie. Especially a photo - particularly if said photo reminds me of some old running joke between us. Recycle: throw into the recycle bin, whatever's left from the mauling.

Ack, if only I had tiiime to do these things. These are definitely going on the weekend project list though. However...my shelter magazines aren't going anywhere. I tab them and save them for ideas and inspiration and use them all the time. But while I'm not repurposing my heavy magazine load into projects, I DO at least recycle every last one of them!
