This past weekend I managed to tackle a project that had been on my to do list for ages – recycle all my old magazines. My stockpile was getting pretty tall, so it was definitely time. I turned on some old episodes of House Hunters International and spent an hour or so going through each, ripping out pages I found inspirational. Later this week I will show you how I organize all the things I tear out so I can reference them later.
I love creating collage artwork, so I couldn’t resist cutting out a few words and letters for a DIY project too. I’ve been saving a few empty Illy coffee cans for crafting and thought covering them with words would look really cool. This DIY project is easy, only requiring a few supplies.

The most time consuming part of this DIY project is cutting out all the words from magazines. You need to have a variety of different fonts, colors and shapes to choose from, making sure to cut out enough black and white words to add balance to all the color.
