Rolled Magazine Art

Attention contemporary art fans, I've got just the DIY project. Rolled magazine art is a great and inexpensive way to add flare to your style. I was hooked on the technique after viewing a couple projects online. I believe in functionality, so I wanted to create something with purpose. That being said, what could be better than a vase? It holds flowers, candles, and endless amounts of knick knacks. This project was fairly inexpensive but somewhat time consuming. The creation itself looks awesome, but expect to work your fingers to the bone. The smartest way to complete this project is to coherence some  friends or family to help you. Would I do this project again? Absolutely! If you're interested in creating you're own, check out my tutorial below

Instructions
Step 1. Rip out a magazine page and use the scissors to cut the page into 3 even strips

Step 3. Start at one end and tightly roll the piece of paper
