Make My Week #27 New Placemats

Sticking with the varnishing theme here.

I decided to use this project to write a tutorial in response to the request after the bus coasters. (Tutorial coming next week)

I picked up an old-fashioned picture type dictionary ages ago from an op-shop.

I let the boys go through and pick whatever page they wanted. No surprises here.

Flip – sign lover chose the signs page

Bounce – Vehicle lover – vehicle page

For The Atlas I chose the sport page. Don’t you LOVE that wrestling and hurdling were considered top sports to put in??

And for me – well who’s to go past a man in uniform???!!!

I also made the boys a coaster each because there were 2 random coasters hanging around in the bottom draw in the kitchen. You know that random draw where weird stuff accumulates?

So now we can have a family meal in real style.
