Make your own magazine holders from empty cereal or cracker boxes. Measure up 4 inches from the bottom. Place a mark at 4 inches. Draw a line from the 4 inch mark to the top of the box. (Will be at an angle.) Do this to both sides. Cut off marked part. Presto, you have a magazine holder, paper organizer, etc. You can cover with wrapping paper, unused wallpaper to coordinate with a room decor or your kids can decorate kraft paper. It is a simple craft and fun to decorate.

I remember doing this once with my daughter, only we used empty laundry soap boxes (remember them?). We didn't cover them with ordinary fabric, but with faux fur fabric. Very colour full and interesting looking. (We also covered the inside of the box as well.)
