Sometimes the best projects are the simplest. This magazine wall treatment from CraftStylish Magazine is certainly at the top of this category. The designers were looking for a way to brand their booth at a tradeshow with their magazine, and ended up using the magazine itself as an entire wall treatment. There's no scissors or multiple steps required, just your old magazines and a few hours of your time. Click through to see what a few folded pages in repetition do to an entire wall!

You can check out the full tutorial over at Craftsylish along with the back story, more pictures and extra details.

Using a magazine that is between 100-200 pages (the more pages the more folding you have to do), fold down the tops of two pages.

Next fold up the bottom half without creasing the fold all the way to the end (leaving the slightly bubbled look).

They used velcro strips to adhere theirs to the wall (since it was intended for a tradeshow, they had limitations to what they could use), although they could be easily staped, taped or glued, depending on the amount of labor desired to remove them from the wall.

The final effect is quite stunning and would be a great way to rid yourself of your magazines that are headed for the recycling bin!

Thanks Craftstyilish!
