In class, our objective was to create a 3D art piece, and I chose to make a box using rolled up magazines. The inspiration for this piece comes from an image I saw on Pinterest that was a box made of newspaper. To create my art piece, I cut magazine pages into four even strips, then I used a small wooden stick to curl the strips. While curling the strips, I had trouble making them all the same size, so I made a mark on the wooden stick where I would start to roll the newspaper to make them all even. Next, I rolled the curled strips into small circles then I glued them together in five groups of nine. After I had my groups, I glued them together in the form of a box. This project helped me learn new skills to create more art like this in the future.
