Create a magazine and comic book holder from maps.
Buy two plasticized world maps, sold at most office-supply stores, and cut one map in half (for displaying the halves vertically). Then, cut three squares out of the second map that are large enough to hold a magazine; these become the pockets. Position the pockets over the map halves so they line up perfectly, then machine-sew them in place using a straight stitch. Pin the maps on the wall with a thumbtack in each corner.
