• Magazine File Makeover


    Makeover a plain magazine holder to match any decor

  • Step 1


    Use Mod Podge and scrapbook paper to cover the spine of a plain magazine file (I purchased mine at IKEA). Be sure to place the paper diagonally so it covers the entire length. Wrap the paper around the sides and use Mod Podge to glue them down

  • Step 2


    Use an exacto knife to trim the top and bottom pieces of paper that overhang

  • Step 3


    Use Mod Podge to glue a sheet of scrapbook paper to each side. Then use the exacto knife to trim the excess along the curve of the magazine file.

  • Step 4


    Wrap the edges from the sides around the short edge of the magazine file and glue down with Mod Podge. Trim the overhang.

  • Step 5


    Cut out the finger hole so you can pull the file box in and out. Thread ribbon through, add a wood tag (or any other style of tag) and tie in a bow. You can Mod Podge the entire surface of the magazine holder before doing this step to protect the paper.
