I made this & shared it on Instagram about a month ago, promising to show the how-to on the blog. Well, here it is.

You'll need:
old magazine
bone folder (optional)

This is a super easy project, you just need a bit of time and patience.
Begin with the cover page and fold over one corner to the center, making a nice sharp crease. Do the same for the bottom corner, folding it up along the binding to that the cover makes a triangle. Continue all the way through to the end of the magazine.

I like these smaller magazines, they seem to be the perfect size but you could use any size. Try making two of these and gluing/taping them together with a bit of string in between them and hang it over a window or from the ceiling!
