Laminated Placemats

Today I decided that I needed to make some new placemats for the girls.  Their original ones (which I made last April) are now a bit worn around the edges.  This time I used the Picnik site, which makes things a lot easier and they have better font choices than normal word documents.  Once I had the design I wanted, I then imported the picture into a word document to print. (Maybe there is a different way to do this, but this is the way I have always done it!) Then I printed the design onto A4 Cardstock. Then using A4 laminated pouches I laminated the card to make the placemats.  Depending on what design you use, you could use these laminated cards for various other things.  Some examples are door signs or file dividers.  While I had the laminator machine heated up, I also laminated a front cover sheet for my 'Home Organiser File'.  I think I will have to do a blog about my 'Organising Habit' one day.  I can't live without my lists and charts, otherwise my life would be topsy turvy!
