Make it: Ticket Bowl

Ticket Bowl from the Where Women Create Feature

roll of “fair/carnival” tickets
Mod Podge – gloss or matte
foam paintbrushes
rubber bands
small piece of felt
Fabri-Tac glue

1. Unroll the top five layers of tickets. Apply Mod Podge to the backs of these tickets and reroll back together. Keep the roll tight; these tickets will form the brim of the bowl. Use rubber bands to secure, if needed, while the glue dries.

2. Use your fingers to press the roll into a bowl form, pushing in the center and gently pulling on the sides to form a bowl shape.

3. Apply Mod Podge to the outside and inside of the ticket bowl.

4. Let dry; repeat with two more coats of Mod Podge.

5. Cut a piece of cardstock the size of the bottom of the bowl. Glue to the bowl bottom with découpage medium. Cut a piece of felt the same size and attach with Fabri-Tac glue.
