By Gary Boutin

Supplies and Tools:
Clear packing tape
DIY Reference Magazine Holders
Razor Knife with spare blades
HP Computer box (empty)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia states that "upcycling, also known as creative reuse, is the process of transforming by-products, waste materials, useless, or unwanted products into new materials..."

This post shows the four steps on to use upcycling an used HP computer box into a Reference holder

Step 1: Fig.2 shows to take a HP computer box and draw a diagonal line across it. Fig.3 shows both ends of the computer box. This box made two DIY Reference Magazine Holders. One side of the diagonal is 6-inches on the short side and the other side long side is 12.5-inch long. Now use scissors to cut the line.

Step 3: After each box has been cut use clear packing tape up the edges or the HP computer box. Then use the scissors and cut diagonally. This box will be larger because the reference books will  be laid on their side.

Step 4: The holder presently can be used alone, or they can be taped together, making the box stronger for the union.
