Love the idea of making my own magazine holders! Thank you for the inspiration :-)

This is great! I was searching for a video to make sure I could do something stronger than a cereal box and this is the perfect video! Thank youuu

Thank you! I had lots of Duck Tape, lots of boxes, and lots of unorganised 12x12 paper so I adapted the size to 13 inches and made files for the paper. I got into a mess with the hot glue (as usual!) so I joined the pieces with even more Duck Tape, inside and out to reinforce the joins even though I don't plan to move the files. I positioned the files with the small piece at the top, so I can pull the files out the front easier as they are in a cupboard.

You are cool.😎 I have some cartons and I shall use. I hope they stick together though. I can’t find some good glue guns. Thank you 🌸

bookwormgirl000 (4 years ago)
it's pretty sad that some people are commenting more on her voice more than her actual informative, interesting content.

You Talk Fast.. Please make A Video For How To Make A Portfolio By Only Using a MAGAZINE Thanks:))
Ira Ashton (5 years ago)
I did this with the free flate rate boxes from the post office (they're the perfect shape) and just put it together and cut off some of it to get that shape. WAY easier than all the cardboard cutting and gluing. My scrapbook paper is coming off though...I think I'll do duct tape next time. Thanks! :)
Queenie Oxiño (5 years ago)

@LwgitArt1 She talks 'so much stupid?'? I'm pretty sure SHE isn't the retarded one over here.
RwAllstar29 (6 years ago)
You scared me with your voice... I felt like you were gonna jump out of the screen at me and force me to make one of these :O Great idea though.
LegitArt1 (6 years ago)
You talk soooooo much stupid
Shubhneet Kaur Kang (6 years ago)
This one is just awesome !!!!
Sass_Elf (6 years ago)
I'd be concerned with them falling apart if I ever tried to move them/pick them up while full. I use mine to hold my comic books, and a collection of trades get pretty heavy. Hot glue is not the strongest adhesive.

I guess it's not what you're after with your crafts, but i'd love them a little bit more tidy. But the inspiration is still there :)
Glenda Siagian (6 years ago)

Purpleglucose (6 years ago)
I feel like its been suck a long time since I've seen a new video from Mrs. Perp let me check.....Its only been 4 days....lol
ChocolateFrogs42 (6 years ago)
I'm definitely going to try this for my comics! Maybe even take some "bad" comics and cut them up for the sides, though I don't know what I would want to spread on them to keep them on and not flaky.
Cody Waters (6 years ago)
Hi, I'm new here. This was really crafty! I'm excited to explore the rest of your videos now! Also, your magazine holder matches your top. ^_^ DFTBA

Hey Karen, love your vids, learning a lot. What knowledge did you know about graphic design before you started college and how did you learn it?

Karen Kavett DIY (6 years ago)
Your face is so fetch.
Karen Kavett DIY (6 years ago)
Thanks! That's exactly what I'm going for :)
Karen Kavett DIY (6 years ago)
I definitely need to get myself some chalkboard paint.
Karen Kavett DIY (6 years ago)
haha, I didn't realize they would match quite so well, but it's better than clashing.
Karen Kavett DIY (6 years ago)
I know, in the second one I made I was a lot better about finishing off the corners.
Karen Kavett DIY (6 years ago)
I'd bet that venn diagram overlaps at least a bit.
Karen Kavett DIY (6 years ago)
Thanks so much for watching!
Karen Kavett DIY (6 years ago)
Thanks! I just try not to clash.
Karen Kavett DIY (6 years ago)
Thanks! Me too :)
Karen Kavett DIY (6 years ago)
haha, perhaps.
saranna00 (6 years ago)
This is a super-super trivial question, but I'm interested in visual things so this sticks out to me: Do you color match your clothes with other things in your videos? I noticed in another video your nails were the same color as your shirt and now the folder and your shirt are the same. Just wondering if this was a conscious choice?
eriwyn (6 years ago)
Love it!!! I've actually acquired old magazine boxes from libraries, and duct-taped the fun out of it. :)
thegreenreader8 (6 years ago)
This is proof to my mother that covering things in duck tape is not weird.
Janice Tsang (6 years ago)
Your tank top matches your magazine holder!!:D

I so love this ! I always wanted to properly tidy my magazines, so I think I will try to do this this weekend.
