My best friend has a little girl named Izabella and she would love something like that.
Did you freehand the animals or did you have a pattern??

I finished a little one (pictures coming next week, probably, when I play with our new work camera) and I definitely think this is a future library crafty program!
cbass, about how many strips did you use for yours, especially the traingle-y one?

Library craft program?!? Sweet! My mum is a Librarian, she'll dig on that.

The triangle one took a bit of time. I tried oval and square (sorry no pics of those but they turned out great), but the triangle one was a toughie. I made a triangle out of one slat and just continued to coild around, meanwhile with a gaping hole in the middle. So I just started wrapping slats or coiling them to fill in the middle. My mum said it looked like a cupboard of folded blankets. Smiley

As for number of slats, I haven't counted. I just kept adding until I liked the size.

Do you think Modge Podge would work instead of glue?

I think it would probably work great, I just used white glue cause its all I had. I think modge podge would make it sturdier though.

Okay so there is some confusion about how to keep each ring together (ring is a good word cause when you get your flat disc it looks like the inside of a tree), I omitted at the beginning when I was taping the original coil to itself that you continue taping each ring you put on. This will keep your eventual 'disc' nice and tightly wound together.

Does this make sense?

I was inspired to make these after my trip to Chicago in May, except the ones I saw were sheets of magazine paper rolled into tubes. I folded these sheets into 'slats', and made the bowls like collapsable cups. I will make a picture tutorial soon. Anyways tell me what you think.


1) Rip out magazine sheets that have lotsa colour in them, and colour that goes all the way to the edges cause that is what you will see.

2) Flip over the page you wish to use and start folding corner to corner. Figure out how wide you want your slats to be before beginning and try and make them all the same or else some will stick out.

3) Once you have folded it to the end glue the last flap over.

4) Then run glue along the finished slat and then start to roll, as tightly as you can to create your base. (As you go on DO NOT glue all slats together you want them to be able to move so you can bring the sides up to make the bowl shape.)

5) Now tape the end to keep it nice and tight.


There has been som confusion on this point. The following pics look similar to the ones above but notice I am adding a second ring and you will add every additional ring in this way:The end of this slat is tapped to the base and then tightly wrapped around and then .....:taped again.

6) Continue to make slats and wrap them around the base. Alternate which sides you start to wrap around or else it will start to slant all to one side. After a while you should have a flat disc, once you reach your desired size (its kinda like pottery wheel in this sense!) push your thumbs in the middle and use your fingers to bring up the side of the bowl. When you have it looking the way you want cover the bowl inside and out with two layers of white school glue. As you know it dries clear and keeps your bowl hard and in its shape.

I hope these instructions make sense and if you have any questions just let me know. Thank you for all of your responses and praise.

PS: K-Roc I will be sending you one of these my love!
