Making 12x12 paper holders inexpensively :-)

Instructions for making 12x12 paper holders out of IKEA 8.5x11 magazine holders. First take the 8.5x11 magazine holder and cut the front piece off of it. Put it together per the instructions. Now it will look like the magazine holder should just without the front piece on it. This will allow for you to be able to fit 12x12 paper into it. Then tape the inside and the back of the magazine holder with clear packing tape so that it's will stay together well.  Now just slide your 12x12 paper into it and voila an inexpensive 12x12 paper holder :-)

This is great! I love that it's for 8 1/2 x 11, so it's not too tall! The place where I put my 12x12 paper is basically juuusttt right. This is perfect, thanks! :)

Great idea! And you don't have that front panel in your way when your are trying to select paper!
