Magazine Baskets

Posted on

Nope. Not to hold magazines. These are baskets made out of magazines. I’m a sucker for all things re-purposed, so after our company left, I spent a few hours this afternoon learning how to weave. (It’s such a cool by-product of this summer: all of the learning we’re doing. As a “retired” teacher, it’s really scratching that learnin’ itch.)

I used some older Rachel Ray mags for this project. It only took ten pages.

Beautiful, isn’t it? Ok, maybe not beautiful.

When Cat saw it she said, “Wow, Mom, that’s interesting.” I’m raising such a tactful daughter. 😉

Right now, it’s holding my coupons for the week.

It’s not horrible, but

I’ll have to give it another try some day.

Maybe when it’s snowing out and I have some time to kill.

For now, though, I finished it and we have 33 more pins to try.
