DIY ~ Magazine Coasters

DON'T FORGET ABOUT MY BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY ON THIS WEEK!
CLICK HERE TO ENTER VIA RAFFLECOPTER
 
I got this fab tutorial from the How About Orange blog and loved it!!!
 
 
YOU WILL NEED:
magazines
scissors
hot glue gun
 

First cut out 6 pages from your magazine with colors you like.
 

Cut each page in half.
Fold each half in half long ways.
 

 
Once in half, fold each end in so you have a long flat tube.
 

Then fold those in half so you have a shorter piece with on folded edge in the center.
Hook those two together and start weaving.
Keep adding parts like that weaving in and out.
 


 Tuck your ends in and glue it shut.
 
 
It is very tricky to keep them all even and tight, but if you can get it they turn out super cool!
 
Cheers,
Messy

What a fab way to recycle those magazine pages! I never though of that... I have some magazines lying around here. Now, I have anm idea what to do with it once I get some "me time" to craft ^^) Thanks for sharing.
