Laminated Placemats with Cut Flowers

Colorful Paper to cut Flower designs
Backing paper, I used white 11x17, you can use any color
Laminator and Sheets/pouches

1. Flowers and flower centers are cut and placed in pattern of choice, I chose scattered. 

2. Flower sheet is then placed in laminated sheet and sleeve and then run through the laminator, giving you a place mat in minutes. 

Fun and colorful for any table.

A variety of  place settings to show your lovely work !

In addition to your lovely table setting try 
doodles on cardboard for great coaster art.
