This month’s magazine was Makeshift, a fantastic “field guide to hidden creativity” that celebrates the many different ways people hack systems and objects to make their lives a bit better. But even they couldn’t have anticipated the various uses that enterprising Stack subscribers would find for the magazine.

As ever, we’ve collected all of them on Pinterest, so head over there to take a look at the full range of happy magazine readers. And remember that you too could join the club – sign up for Stack and we’ll send a different independent magazine direct to your door every month.

But first of all, take a look at our five favourite photos from April…

05. Lunch companion
Christian knows the joy of a quiet lunch spent with a fine magazine. Extra points awarded to this shot for including the postcard we sent out to all subscribers this month, created by illustrator Cynthia Kittler and presented in association with MUBI.

04. Dog baiter
Charli’s hound looks less than impressed by the new rules of the house.

03. Work mate
Sticking with the theme of hidden creativity, Larry doesn’t give any clues as to what he’s actually making. But the workbench and wood shavings make for an enterprising background if nothing else.

@stackmagazines just sent me this little gem knocked together by @mkshftmag #stackinthewild

02. Sun screen, part I
Is that Sean’s knee sticking out from behind the magazine, or a small bald man? Either way, as the sun came out this month, subscribers turned to Makeshift for shade.

01. Sun screen, part II
And our winner this month is another sun screen entry, this time by Joel, who goes for the full face shade. Congratulations Joel – you win this month’s Stack t-shirt!
