Staying Crafty

I saw this idea somewhere online. I think on a blog. These bowls are made from catalogs. Each page is folded into strips and they are coiled to make the bowls. If you posted it feel free to leave a link in the comments here because I am having trouble finding the post again.

Kaycee had fun with this and made two bowls, one small and one large. I think we will give them a coat of sealer so they are more protected and longer lasting. Pretty neat project out of something that would have gone in the trash.

The bowls have a close up shot in this post.

  2. Great project. I've seen picture frames and mirrors made that way. I work at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and our gift shop there carries several products made in this way.
