In furniture shops there are a lot of beautiful design objects to hold paper-magazines in a elegant way. But they are mostly quite expansive! I wanted something modern and affordable. I found the solution at the cash desk of ikea: straps!
For this easy do it yourself action, you just need a stack of magazines and a strap. Order the magazines from the tallest to the smallest on top and bind the straps around it, like for a gift.
If you want your holder to be more stable, you can add a wood plate of the size of the tallest magazine on the bottom of the stack and bind it with the magazines together.
