I'm sure I'm the only one who drinks boxed wines, but in case there are others of you, here's a great idea. I had the box laying on the dryer waiting to be torn down for the recycle bin when I noticed the size is just about the same as a cardboard magazine organizer.

I grabbed a flimsy organizer off my craft shelf, lined it up on the box, marked a few lines, and cut away. Not only is it a money saver, but the re-purposed wine boxes are much sturdier than the magazine boxes you can buy. I just covered it with some leftover contact paper and waited for the next box to empty!

Bottled beer comes in very sturdy boxes. I used this one as a magazine holder.

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.

I save my empty laundry detergent boxes to make cheap magazine holders. They can be cut on an angle like the ones seen in office supply stores or just left uncut. I then spray paint them or cover with contact paper and plop my magazines inside.

You could spray paint them, use scrapbook paper, magazine pictures, or some strips of wallpaper and embellish them with felt pens, glitter or what-not.

You could take MacTac and cut out flowers, stripes, and then there is adhesive wallpaper that has a woodgrain and cover them.

I copy two or three really nice cover pages of the magazine that will be in the holder (usually a holiday issue) and then decoupage it to the box. I use one copy to put a title on the edge of the box and put cover pictures on both sides. This provides extra strength to the box and let's me know which magazine is inside.

I would like to decorate the inexpensive cardboard magazine holders so that they look better and match the colors in our office.
