Step 1: Materials
Find a medium to small size cardboard box (preferably 11 x 8) that will hold up two 25 magazines. Also you will need scissors and old newspapers or wrapping paper.
Step 2: Cut Off One Side of the Box
Cut off one of the narrower sides of the box.
Step 3: Tape the Bottom of the Box
Tape up the bottom of the box and reinforce all remaining sides with clear packaging tape.
Step 4: Cut Off the Top Flaps of the Box
Place the bottom reinforced side of the box down and cut off the top open flaps of the box so the top is smooth.
Step 5: Cut the Sides of the Box to Create Diagonal Lines
Cut along each side of the box diagonally from the bottom outside corner to the top inside corner. A steeper angle may be used depending on the size of the books or magazines that will be used.
Step 6: Choose Your Magazine Rack Wrapping
Cut out newspaper comics or movie advertisements and wrap the box in those newspaper sections.
Step 7: Paint a Gloss or Let the Paper and Work Age for All Time
Place the magazines in the newly created pop culture magazine rack. You may also choose to paint a clear layer of gloss varnish in order to keep the paper from fading and maintain its sturdiness.
