Paper Bag Floors
Fortunately, these are both more along the lines of “water closets” so the space was fairly small. (I’m not kidding.) Rip your paperinto small pieces. Polyurethane your (now dry) paper floor. When that coat is dry, do it again.
Create the look of a custom floor in no time with nearly no expense! I did not create this technique, you can find adidas football boots ton adidas football boots s of references to it via a quick internet search. However, never, in my wildest dreams, did I ever think the end result would look as good as it does.
There are loads of v adidas football boots ariations you can do. You can stain (or tint) individual pieces of paper. You can use different KINDS of paper (magazine pages, photocopied pictures, the only limit is your imagination). You can use other materials; fabric, tiles, whatever. By controlling the size and shape of your paper pieces, you can create just about any look you want. Tile, stone, cork, et cetera. Since this is a basic d technique, you can use this on floors, furniture, just about anywhere. If you’re looking for a super flush finish, you can omit the polyurethane and use polymer resin. (But, that would be a different Instructable.)
You will need: Paper Bags (If you want a more uniform look, you can buy rolls of craft paper. Personally, I liked the look of collecting lots of different bags from different stores. It gave different variations to the final project.) Polyurethane White Glue Water Tape Paintbrushes (The cheaper the better, we don’t n adidas football boots eed fine brushes for this project.) (Once again, the cat is optional, be prepared to sacrifice some of your paper balls to give yourself some peace if you choose to use one.)
There you goIf I am one of the cricut explore winners I will be happy. They have 9 Cricut Explores up for grabs and that is the baby I want. I have an embosser.
I make projects and home decor, greeting cards etc and put in events to earn money for spaying all my rescue cats/kittens. This is kitten seasoning in the spring, so I am trapping many mommy and babies.
Our event will be held this summer so hoping for that machine to help me mass produce. “On one of Bob’s many trips to the Home Depot/Lowe’s, I had him pick up my supplies.” We have a saying in our house. It is not possible to make only one trip to Home Depot for any single project; regardless of how well prepared you (think you) are!
This was another part I loved, “Even my husband, who normally doesn’t love my projects, was a huge fan of the end result.” My husband is usually very happy with my random need to change things. This was the first time I got any kind of. “Hmmm, I’m not so sure about this.” from him. However, when it was all said and done, he loved it!
