isn't this totally awesome!?!? i saw one at Barnes and Noble a long long time ago and i really wanted to make one...so i did! don't fool yourselves! this project isn't all fun and games...haha. it took me like three days. i SUCK at rolling paper let me just tell you! i think it turned out super cool and it cost me pretty much close to nothing, i mean its recycled! the most awesome part about this is that it is recycled! i am saving the world AND making beautiful pieces of artwork at. the. same. time!! so instead of listening to me babbling about how awesome this picture frame is you should check out the tutorial!
1. you will need a picture frame (i got mine from Michael's for $1.00 ), mod podge, old magazines, and a hot glue gun.
2. first you will need to mod podge pieces of magazine -papers to your picture frame this is so that if you have gaps in between the rolled paper it will be less noticeable.
3. tear out pieces of your magazine and roll them! i am really terrible at rolling paper, so what i did was i dipped my finger in mod podge ( to keep the paper from unfolding) and i ran it along the very edge of the paper and i FOLDED it not rolled but folded...trust me it will turn out! after it got thicker it looked circular...if it doesn't turn out to be circular then just pinch it until it does. i spent a LONG time trying to figure out how to roll it tightly and this was the best solution. after i rolled it to the thickness i wanted it i sealed it with some more mod podge so that it wouldn't unroll. after you have your paper rolls cut them to fit the frame and hot glue the in any pattern you wish! i did mine diagonal which was a little tricky when it came to placing everything, but i think it looks cool! i saw one in Texas that had the magazines rolled into circle shapes...im not that talented though! haha.
