Super EASY placemats

I'm so excited to be back in the bloggy world!  It seems like forever since I was able to sit down and post.  And today I have an EXCITING and super EASY project to share.  You will be especially excited if you are getting ready to plan a party and are looking for cheap ways to decorate!  So here's the fun...
EASY and beautiful placemats.  All you need is the following...

Self adhesive Laminating paper

And pretty scrapbook paper, WHATEVER kind you want, or whatever goes with your party theme!!
I love black and white so that's what I decided to go with for this tutorial.

Wait till you hear THIS!!!  All you have to do is "stick" the adhesive paper to the pretty paper...I used four sheets of laminating paper for the large scrapbook paper that I used.  The laminating sheets will overlap.  Trim the edges (if you have any) and there you have it!!  Is that EASY or what?  Four beautiful placemats to use for your party!!

Do you like these as well as I do?

You are right, this is SO EASY and quick! How do they hold up? Love the black and white with the bright blue plate.

Oh, what a good idea! I've never heard of those self-sticking laminating sheets, will have to keep an eye out for them.
