Upcycled Crafts: Magazine Coil Vases
Happy Friday everyone! Today’s upcycled craft will demonstrate how to prepare strips of magazine or book paper to make into vases, coasters and boxes. Once you get enough strips, you just keep coiling and applying glue as you go to keep the object stable. Interested in joining in on this craft in person? We’re teaming up with the folks at the Ruiz Branch for Adult Craft Night on Monday, July 8th at 6:30pm to do this craft. Hope to see you there!
Magazine or Book Paper
Scissors or Paper cutter
Cut your paper into strips measuring 4″ wide by however long the piece of paper is to begin with. Fold in half.
Fold paper in half again, gluing it together so it doesn’t come apart.
Fold paper in half a third time, and unfold it. Fold up the edge that is raw to the center crease just made.
Fold the edge you just folded in the last step over itself until it reaches the far edge of the paper. Add glue in between layers and press into place.
Begin coiling the strips together, attaching them end to end with glue.
