Some of the fat quarters that I purchase, especially those from Jo-Ann Fabrics are folded around a thin cardboard square. Rather than putting them directly into the recycle bin, I use them for templates when crafting or quilting.They will not stand up to extensive use, but are great for occasional or limited use.
This is the time of year when I am inundated with political mailings. So the ballot is in the mail and now I have all of this junk mail to recycle. I decided to use some of it to make circular templates. You can use a compass or just about any circular object you have around the house.I made three different sizes using a compass, a Winnie the Pooh plate, and a glass mixing bowl. These paper templates are fairly thin so they won't last forever, but they work great for a special project. Happy crafting.
