Is your kitchen table boring? Do you have boxes of old or extra trading cards from Magic the Gathering, Pokemon, or Yu-Gi-Oh? Well dig them out and get cutting, because today we're going to add some decorative nerd flare to your dinning room with DIY table placemats made from trading cards.
- Stack of trading cards
- Clear Contact Paper
- Punch (optional)
1. Pick your pattern or image. I had originally planned to cut out card images using a fancy tessellation pattern. Having returned from a mini vacation to the Renaissance Festival this past weekend, I ultimately decided I didn't have enough time to cutout all the pieces given everything else going on this month. If you're patient and/or have the time, I'd totally recommend getting a little more fancy; your placemat will turn out that much cooler! I opted to use a square scrapbooking punch I had on hand to cut out my cards.
