They are readily available at office supply stores, department and discount stores.

  2. Awesome ideas for the magazine files!! I never thought of most of them! Thanks for sharing and opening my eyes. Love them!!

  3. I love these ideas, I really want to do the can thing but mine are never wide enough, I’ll have to check out carries pattern 🙂

  4. I’ve seen them upcycled from Priority mail boxes, too. An angled cut in the right place leaves you with two magazine holders from each box (assuming both ends of the box are closed first).

    Great ideas! (I especially love the idea of making extra-wide ones.)
