If you have some extra copies of Martha Stewart Living magazine lying around, you may be inspired to use them for crafts. One seller on (BellyBuzz in Houston) has done just that by fashioning gift bows and package filling out of the pages of a past issue.

Each bow is handcrafted from a different page of the magazine - in this case the February, 2008, issue - and is finished with a peel-and-stick adhesive backer. The bows can be continuously reused because of the sturdy brad in the center of each bow. The bag also comes with a hefty filling of shredded packaging using the pages of the magazine.

Each bag has 9 custom bows and the package filler. They are placed in a cellophane bag and topped off with another part of the magazine

I personally think it's a brilliant craft idea! I've used the pages of Martha Stewart Living as wrapping paper and stationery before, but nothing quite so impressive as this. She also works with magazines like Esqurie, Wired, Vanity Fair and Vogue. How perfect for the magazine afficionado on your list.
