After the recent Hari Raya celebrations at the office, all kinds of recyclable items lay next to the dustbin, ready to be discarded. I was just in time to salvage some of them for my projects!
First, I used the cardboard bottom of a cake tin, to make a mousepad. First, I used art glue to stick scraps of material on the surface and then covered it with strips of cellophane tape. Voila! A perfectly usable mouse pad! (just be careful to ensure there are no ridges on the surface caused by air bubbles trapped under the cellophane tape.)
