Craft: Personalized Placemats

Chelsey, age 12, from Canada shared this simple craft idea and Squigly has added some of his own ideas too!

What you need:

Construction paper or Bristol board (light cardboard)
Scissors
Glue
Markers
Old magazines and catalogues
Photographs
Clear Mack-tack or laminating machine
 

What you do:

1. Cut the construction paper or Bristol board into rectangles approximately 23" x 17". The placemats do not have to be the same colour. You might choose each person's favourite colour.
 
2. Think of the person you are making the placemat for and start looking through the magazines and catalogues. Cut out pictures that would be of interest to that person. You can also use photographs.
 
3. Once you have the pictures cut out, glue them on both sides of the Bristol board placement.
 
4. To finish the placemat laminate it or use clear Mack-tack on both sides. When using Mack-tack cut it larger than the placement and be sure to get out as many air bubbles as you can. Use scissors to round off the corners.
