DIY magazine holder

So the other day I was emailed by a friend who said her husband loves to read in the bathroom, but she is tired of the magazine mess around the toilet! : ) So here is a simple and CHEAP solution. Just tuck these bad boys next to the toilet for all those On-The-John readers in your life! They can also be made for a home office, living room, or desk!

  1. Large cereal box 
  2. Contact paper or craft/scrapbook paper
  3. Mod Podge
  4. Paint Brush (one you don't LOVE, mod podge is hard to get off paint brushes)
  5. Scissors
  6. Pen
 Draw a curved line in your box and cut box on both sides

Cut craft paper or contact paper to fit box. Mod Podge craft/scrapbook paper or stick contact paper to box

Cut a small strip for the back and small strip for the front and stick or mod podge those on as well

Enjoy your new handmade magazine holder. Make matching ones, or mix and match colors. Have fun with it!
