In Living Color

This week, I'm turning these decorative
tissue paper sheets from blah to TADA!

These were used to wrap or line presents
given to us during the holidays.

Let's throw in this plastic bag, too.

Pick your favorite colors from the stack.
Run them through a shredder or make
strips using a pair of scissors.

Mix the strips to evenly distribute the colors,
then put them inside the plastic bag.
Spread them out evenly & flatten the package.

Fold & seal the edge with clear tape.

TADA! It's a pretty placemat!

Great for everyday snacking or make more for a party.
Wipe it with a damp cloth to clean and it
will be good for several uses.

  2. Thanks so much for the fun & fabulous award Reese! :)

  3. This is a very good idea. You could use them for your own Easter grass or packing in a pretty gift box or basket.


  4. That's a great idea Ronda -- I'll take note of it when Easter rolls in :) Thanks for your visit!
