This will bowl you over!


I recently read a magazine article about making paper bowls...very artsy looking so think about this for gift-giving occasions! Steps as follows:

* Wrap a bowl with cling wrap and place it upside down
* Place shredded cardstock (check at Michael's, JoAnn's or similar craft shops!) into a 2nd bowl and sprinkle it with water
* Brush bottom of the cling-wrapped bowl with a solution of 2 parts glue and 1 part water
* Add small clump of paper shreds to the bowl randomly and brush with more glue solution until all of them lie flat and stick to the bowl
* Repeat at least 3 times until you are about 2 inches from top of bowl
* Let bowl dry and remove it from the cling wrap

This is very artsy, art-deco and gift-worthy...enjoy and let your friends think you thought it up all on your own! :)
