I made this for a swap and thought I would share it here as well.  I am a big fan of recycled paper crafts.  The bowl is made from one black Christmas card I received and 2 catalogs.   I am really proud of how it turned out...in fact I am having a hard time giving it away

That it such a fun bowl!  Great job!

I am so glad you guys like it.  Ok so this really is the easiest thing to make just requires a ton of time. 

First I cut 2 catalogs into 1/2 inch strips. 

I then made the base of the bowl.  This is done the same way you make coasters. I wrap my first piece around a small stick I have and then continue to wrap the paper until the base is a size you want. You do need to put glue down the whole length of the paper.  I use fast drying paper glue.

I then cut my black card (use any card stock paper) and cut it into 1/2 inch strips.

I then wrapped the black card strips around a fat marker I have.  I covered the black ring with 3 strips of magazine paper.  I made about 100 of these rings.

I then repeated the same thing but I used a round lid I found as the item I wrapped my paper around.  I made about 50 of these larger rings.

I then used a hot glue gun and assembled the bowl.

I will add pictures to help show what I am trying to explain as soon as I get my camera back from the Geek Squad.

This looks so good! My sister made me something very similar to this a few years ago, unfortunately it fell victim to a vase of flowers (well, the water anyway  Smiley) I thought a few times about making another but thought it would be too complicated, but now I've seen yours I might give it a go! Did you mould it around another bowl or something to get the shape or do it freehand?

Wow I love it!  Thanks for sharing how you got it done!

I did not mold it around a bowl but I ace a relent for eyeing things like this...using a bowl would have been easier  Smiley

Love it! I keep saving colorful ads on heavy paper, but I haven't actually made one yet.
Your use of the black card stock in the center really makes it special.

maybe I missed this step, but did you seal it or anything?
I made something *kind of* similar,, though mine were random shapes and colors and I used hot glue and polyurethane to seal it. (but they were coasters).
I started making a bowl recently, the typical magazine kind, not like this. But I'm out of polyurethane so I was trying to see if there Was another way to seal it. Any ideas?
