Magazine Holder

To hold all my Halloween idea books, old and new, I decided to make this Magazine holder!
Materials Needed:

Make sure box is clean of food remnants and lay a magazine on top so you can be sure it will fit inside. Smaller boxes will work for little idea books.
Measure 5" from the bottom and make a mark. Then with your ruler draw a straight line from that mark to the upper corner of the box. Do the same to the other side. Then cut and remove top.
 Trace box onto patterned paper and cut out. Glue papers to your box, plus any borders you will have made.
After you have made a rosette and glued it together, trace it on some black paper but cut out a circle larger than the rosette. Then use your decorative scissors to add the fringe.
Adheare your rosette to the fringed circle and cut out as many little ghosts as needed to decorate the sides of the box as well as the rosette.
Lastly load up your idea books and you'll always know where they are when you need them! 

Imagine making these for all your inspirational craft books! Christmas, Summer, Birthdays, ...
