So this is my first challenge so bear with me! Here's what I came up with...

Supplies:
1 can of noodles $1.09
chopsticks Free from Sushi department
menus Free from sushi department
soy sauce packet Free from sushi department
1 pack of Seaweed $1.99
1 jar of Sesame Seeds $1.99
2 packs of bamboo mats $2.59
1 pack of sumo glue $3.29
1 bag of white rice $.79

Total $14.33

my materials used:
black perm. marker
8" embroidery floss
hot glue
rubber cement

I used the bamboo mats as the front and back covers to the take out menu folder. I ripped the seaweed to make the back look like sushi and on the front I hot glued the chop sticks and cut out a photo of sushi from the menus.



I looked up the word for "Eat" and found the phrase "to eat it all up" which I wrote on the front with the black marker.

I cut the nutrition information from the sushi menu to make up the inside pockets of the folder. I used hot glue to adhere it on 3 sides.



On the back I rubber cemented a mixture of rice and sesame seeds. I also cut out the word Sushi from the wrapper of the chop sticks and the name of the glue I bought along with the logo of the sumo guy from the package of the glue, adhered them with hot glue and wrote the word "is" with black marker.

For the can I ate the noodles and cut a hole in the top of the can to deposit monies. I wrote "take out fund" on it with the black marker. I didn't think it needed anything else.




Here's the finished products

I like how you glued the rice to the seaweed to look like an open roll. You're so crafty with your glue!

Very fun, functional, and makes for a great kitchen decoration to boot!  Wink

And suddenly I realize, this whole military wife thing is getting to me. the first thing I thought was: "Oh lookie, comissary sushi!"

Crazy cute folder, despite the fact that it makes me crave california rolls.
