Measure the back of the box 12 inches tall. Any taller than that, and it may not fit in a shelf.
Line up your ruler from point to point and draw a line all the way around the box. Then cut on the line around the box. I had more control with a steak knife than with my scissors.
Then do your best to fold and hot glue the inside…you’ll have to maneuver the best you can. It probably would look cuter if I lined the inside…but I didn’t. Maybe you could line the inside with coordinating scrapbook paper before you glue the fabric inside. For me…well…I couldn’t really see the inside with magazines in it. But if you gave it as a gift, it would look more finished with the inside lined.
And here’s the back! I was going to decoupage scrapbook paper or wrapping paper, but I love the way the fabric turned out. It looks so tailored. I think this would be a great gift for someone…along with a subscription to their favorite magazine…the gift that gives all year! Now I need to make about 46 more of these because I am a magazine junkie with thousands of stacks of magazines. Or maybe I should get rid of some…such blasphemy!
