      Cork Mousepad With the new optical technology out there for computer mouses-mice-meece? (how do you pluralize that?), there is less of a need for a mousepad. The optical technology works on basically everything, really cutting out the need for a mouse pad anymore. Except I have a cheap desk, and the mouse is slowly wearing away at the paint, so I decided I wanted a mousepad. But really? There’s no designer mousepads, and I want something stylish at my desk…not a puppy or a little baby dressed as a flower. Luckily, I had some cork squares I had bought at Wal-mart to make a cork board wall. The cork wall failed with all of the squares eventually falling, but my cheap ($5 per 4 squares) cork find was stashed away for my future crafty endeavors. (always save those kids of things!) And today, one of those squares has found a home as my mousepad. Super cute, and SUPER easy! (I kind of have a love affair with mustaches…) And I even made it double sided!! Wanna make one?! Each cork square makes one of these. You’ll need: A Cork Square (remember-$5 for 4 at Walmart in office supply aisle) Fabric Scissors My Mousepad Printable Shape (optional) OR The shape you want your mousepad to be Heat n Bond Ultra (found at craft/fabric stores, available at most Walmarts, too) First, cut the mousepad shape, or shape you want to use out of a piece of paper. Then, trace your shape onto your cork square. Then, cut the shape out of the cork with scissors. The cork is thin enough for scissors, but you may want to use a box cutter or exacto knife if you have a dull pair of scissors. Now, iron a pice of the ULTRA Heat n Bond onto the backside of the fabric you want, making sure they are big enough to cover your cork. Then trace the shape of the mousepad onto the paper of the Heat n Bond I went ahead and traced a line a little smaller than the original shape because I wanted to leave a little cork showing around the edge. Cut out the smaller shape, then peel off the paper and iron right onto the cork! It works just like that, but I added some extras, like a mustache and some wording to give it a little personality…I mean, I work at my computer for hours at a time so I want something to keep my desk fun! Fot the mustache, I just added the Heat n Bond to the back of a brown fabric, and the wording is something I’ll teach you in next weeks MIYM…. Then I added a cute patterned fabric I had left over from this project on the back so I had a choice of design! And now my workspace just got a little more fun! Another GREAT idea for Christmas!! Make it your own! Cut it into a circle, a square, or into the shape of an animal! Rather than fabric, use acrilic paint or colored sharpies to design your look!
