I figured I would craft something out of it! My siblings and parents are always using post-it notes, and other pieces of paper for coasters, but those papers usually are something important. So I made the paper coasters.
Step 1: Gather your materials
- A stack of unwanted paper
- Circle template or a protractor
- Strong scissors & thin scissors
Step 2: Collect the paper
I gathered a stack of paper around 25 high, and I placed the glossy magazine paper on top. I put the glossy paper on top, because I felt it absorbed the liquid better than traditional computer paper or newspaper. But then again, it is your choice. If your stapler cannot handle 25 pieces, take a few pieces off so it can.
Once you have your stack, staple twice or three times around the edge, so the tracing and cutting is easier.
Step 3: Draw the template
Try to make as many as you can.
Step 4: Start cutting
You don't want to get a paper cut!
Step 5: Stapling time
Once they are stapled they are finished! You have a paper coaster, made from unwanted paper!
