I have made paper bowls like these http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=71395.msg671168#msg671168
before by coiling paper strips but this is a little different. and probably the last because it took so long. The thing that cracks me up is that Lands' end finally quit sending them to me-I was getting one a month. So I picked these up while walking through Sears. This bowl is made from about half of a catalog cut into 1 1/2 in. strips and folded into 1/4 in. strips with about 1/2 in. of fringed edge. Scotched taped ends of strips as I coiled them around. I mod-podged the bottom as I went. Some pics of the process...
folded strips with fringe
the inside before a jillion layers of mod podge
the legs are small coils stretched out, mod podged, and filled with hot glue.
It's hard to tell, but the inside is quite smooth which was what I wanted.
could have been an interesting hat.
and one for scale
Well...maybe I'll have to make more with the other half of the catalog. Hope I haven't put you to sleep. Thanks for looking!
