Recycled Magazine Frames

What you need:

..magazine pages
..elmer's glue
..frame mat
..glossing spray


..2 hours - includes drying time.

Roll the magazine pages in the shape of a straw and glue the tip as shown.

I then glued the magazine straws onto a surface (frame mat). I custom cut a piece of masonite using my scroll saw.

Continued glueing. Press firmly.

Once magazine straws are glued to the mat, cut the dead ends. Let dry.
You can then use scissors, an exacto knife (craft knife), rotary blades, etc. I used my scroll saw to assure a straight cut.

After all straws are cut, apply your gloss shine (1-3 coats - your preference). After this is done, you can attach the glass to the back of the mat.

Pick a fun photo and temporarily attach using tape!

An exciting and unique craft project for any age!
