Thinking how much money was spent on the cutting mat, I thought, "What can I make with this?" Those are very dangerous words.
Grabbing my trusty can of spray adhesive and one of the cutest prints on my red fabric shelf, I went outside to begin the transformation. Within an hour, I had the cutest transformed cutting mat in theworld. Well, maybe not the world, but my neighborhood anyway!
Here's a peek:
Yo-yos on the pockets.
And here's another:
A little sparkle in the corner, because you have to have a little sparkle somewhere.
And this is what I turned that ugly, battered cutting mat into- a desk blotter! With pockets for important papers, like recipes and how-to-make-a-cute-desk-blotter instructions.
