How to make a magazine rack with a cereal box

1. To start this craft, you will need an empty cereal box. Make sure it is clean and dry. Put zeal in the base so that it is firm and holds the weight of the magazines.

2. Using a pen, draw a transverse line from the upper left corner to the opposite side, approximately one third of the height, as shown in the image. Be careful that both sides coincide.

3. Cut out the cereal box carefully. Start with one of the sides, before cutting the next one make sure that both lines are at the same height, and if not, correct it. Finish cutting the box.

4. Choose the photographs that you like most from some magazines and cut them out. You can also use colored folios, cardboard, wrapping paper or newspaper.

5. Put glue in the box and see the pictures sticking, so that they overlap slightly. Continue until you cover the entire surface. When it dries, you can give it a coat of varnish to make it firmer.
