Refashioning a boring magazine holder in a jiffy

Here's one of my sample projects from last weekend's Back to School Crafternoon with the North Vancouver City Library. I lucked out with two awesome donations: cardboard document carrier tubes and plastic magazine holders.

Here's an easy peasy way to jazz up a boring magazine holder...

I bought a butterfly stencil from Dollarama then used gold and silver Sharpies to add butterflies, stars and circles. Then I glued on some gems to make it a bit sparkly.

I then glued funky paper to the front and back with a green glittery tape accent.

It took me 15 minutes to dress up this magazine holder and was super cheap to refashion.

This weekend I'll be prepping for 3 upcycling workshops as part of next weekend's Culture Days. Join me for one or all - they're free events in partnership with North Vancouver Recreation and Culture Commission.
