I came across these bowls made from movie ticket rolls and knew I had to make some. http://www.elsewares.com/commerce/Ticket-Bowls_MPD325.html





They're great for holding remote controls & just general junk collection. I sealed them pretty well, but I wouldn't immerse them in water, washing with a damp cloth would be ok though. You could probably place napkins in the bottom if you wanted to use it for a popcorn bowl. I think the next time I make them, I'll remove the cardboard circle in the bottom so there isn't a hole there.

I covered them in layers & layers of Mod Podge to hold their shape & then used acrylic spray sealer.

those are neat! so do you just buy a roll of tickets and push the bottom down to make the shape, then load it with the mod podge?

I have some things that I need to finish this weekend to list in my etsy shop, I probably list a couple of bowls too.

these are great! do you  have a tutorial???
As far as a tut goes, I can give you guys a short run down of the process.

Push down on the center of the ticket roll & pull up the sides till you get the shape you want. The shaping takes a little practice to get it just right. Don't be afraid to flatten the ticket roll and start over if you can't get the shape you want.

Once you get the shape you want cover it in thin layers of mod podge, drying between each coat. I honestly lost count of how many layers I used, so use your best judgement when deciding if it needs another layer. You want to cover it good so that it holds the shape & will withstand a damp cloth wiping should it need it.

Then once all the mod podge is dry, spray the bowl with an acrylic sealer. I used 2 coats of the sealer.

Any questions, let me know. Be sure to post photos of your bowls if you make them  Grin
