    Take your magazine and cut out a page that you like the most. Then place it vertically on a table.

    Grab a pencil and mark off nine 3/4-inch-long (2 cm) sections at the top and the bottom of the page.

    Layer the three longest pieces on top of each other. Space them evenly and join together with a double-sided tape.

    Do the same with another group of shorter pieces. Try to make it as evenly as you can for the best effect.
