My Storage Solution for Craft Magazines

Every month/six weeks I get craft stamper magazine, my favourite magazine and Scrapbook magazine. I love to keep them both, the only problem is where to keep them. So while out shopping the other week we got a couple of extra wine boxes which I covered with quite thin paper which made it easier to cover. So using nothing more than paper, thick ribbon and large brads I created some storage boxes for my magazine I have three covered so far and two more ready to cover.

Great idea! I am keeping mine in a large storage box but to honest it's nothing as pretty as your storage solution! Might be a good excuse to buy some wine ;)

I so need to make lots of these;0)

How do you get wine boxes? And where do you put them? I love my craft 'zines but where oh where would I put them in these beautiful boxes? we still have the problem, but they will look a lot prettier, the papers are beautiful as well

Love Dawn xx

Well I got a blank wall behind me where they are lined up along it and when I turn my chair I can just look through them for the one I want :) I got the wine boxes from tesco they were at the till area for putting shopping in :) I asked could I take some and they said I could have as many as I wanted empty ones :) lol
