Bamboo Place Mat "Vase"


While at Target today I found a 4 pack of bamboo place mats for 50% off! The moment I saw them I knew they had potential. Here is the first of my place mat upcycles:

Materials:
bamboo place mat
ribbon
large fountain soda cup
hot glue

This project is very difficult, so please do not attempt unless you are well rested. Ok...here we go: I glued ribbon over the seams of the place mat and let the glue dry.

 Next I wrapped the mat around the soda cup and glued it in place. 

After all that work I had to put flowers in my new vase! 

Phew! I am wiped out. I think I'll treat myself to a glass of ice-cold lemonade. :)






Happy crafting!
