Perfect timing! We've got two large stacks of magazines just sitting in our living room. Instead of dumping them all in the recycling bin, we can now turn them into a great DIY project.

Craftzine recently linked to Abstract Octopus Attack's Flickr set documenting how to make these boxes out of old magazines.

We think the same technique can also be used to DIY these magazine coasters and placemats.
