1) Cut the top flaps off your cereal box
First, trace the shape you want for your magazine folder. You need at least 5 inches at the bottom and 3 inches at the top to hold your magazines securely. You can cut the shape depend on your personal taste, straight/curve.

When you already have basic shape, paint a layer of Mod Podge on the box and lay your paper on top of the glue. You also can use newspaper; this is function to make your shelf look thick. Cut the scrapbook paper around your box, leaving at least 1/2 inch to 1 inch around on all sides.

3) Adjust the Corners
To fold the corners simply use your scissors to cut a slit right at the corner and fold both pieces in. Mod Podge all the edges as you fold them in. I don’t worry about the entire inside but I do want a nice folded over edge. To fold the paper around the curved edges, make slits in the paper every inch or two to allow the paper to fold more easily.

Measure your box side and choose the width of your outside strip. Cut the strip and Mod Podge it on, folding over at the top and bottom. It looks best to have a strip that is smaller than the total width. As long you have a simple pattern or using a different pattern for your strip.
