Introduction: Multi Purpose Bowl
As the name implies it's a multi purpose bowl. You can use it anyway you like. Whats more; it will only take you few hours to make it all by your self. All you need is some corrugated cardboard, glue, a paint brush and a pair of scissors to make this awesome multi purpose bowl.
Step 1: Step 1
Take a corrugated cardboard and turn it so the lines are placed horizontally. If you couldn’t find a corrugated cardboard; take an ordinary cardboard box and remove the upper layer carefully so the horizontal lines are visible.
Step 2: Step 2
Draw 1 inch wide lines on the cardboard along the cardboard length. The ideal length of a single strip should be 32 ½ inch.
Step 3: Step3
Cut the drawn lines carefully. You will need 11 stripes to complete this project.
Step 4: Step 4
Take one strip; measure ½ inch from the edge and put a mark. Carefully apply pressure on the corrugate so it appears flat.
Step 5: Step 5
Keep the pressed strip on a flat surface and take another strip. Paste the second strip on top of the first strip by applying glue on the marked ½ inch.
Step 6: Step 6
Repeat step 5 until all the stripes are pasted continuously; forming a single 352 inch long strip.
Step 7: Step 7
Using your thumb and forefinger roll the strips so that corrugate is facing outward as indicated in the picture.
Step 8: Step 8
After rolling the length of the stripe paste the edge securely; forming a tight coil.
Step 9: Step 9
Keep the thumb on the middle of the coil and press the coil downwards as indicated in the picture.
Step 10: Step 10
Using your hand shape the coil so it forms a shape of a bowl as indicated in the picture.
Step 11: Step 11
After you achieve the desired shape; apply glue inside the shape using a brush. Leave it aside for approximately one to two hours to dry completely.
Step 12: Step 12
Mix water and glue to 1:1 ration. Take a brush and apply
the mixture on the outside surface of the bowl. This will give the bowl a little shinning and it also makes it more steady. Leave the bowl to dry completely.
Step 13: Step 13
If you desired you could paint a design of your choice either inside or outside of the bowl to make it more attractive.
