Magazine Bowls

Magazine bowlsThese magazine bowls are fun to make and truly about reusing that which just ends up in the trash. Roll them up neatly and then coat with Mod Podge to seal and give these bowls a longer life.
MATERIALS
• Old magazines
• Ruler or cardboard cut to 1″ x 12″
• Scotch tape
Mod Podge

DIRECTIONS
1. Students are to tear out magazine pages, taking care to choose those with the most color. The students then place the stick at a corner of a page and wrap the paper around it as shown in the diagram. Careful folding and creasing helps. When the page is completely wrapped around the stick, pull the stick out from one side. Tape the rolled paper corner down so it doesn’t unwrap.

2. The first strip needs to be rolled up tightly, much like a tape measure is rolled. When finished, tape the end to itself so it doesn’t come apart.

3. To continue, each new strip is attached with tape where the last one ended and wrapped to the growing roll until it is the size that is desired. When complete, hold the flat roll and shape it into a bowl. Apply a generous coat of Mod Podge on one side and let dry. Repeat for the remaining side.
