I found these placemats in my cabinet and wanted to throw them out but then I had this fine idea. Just a few seams and voila you have turned them into a box. Just close the side and the bottom and then make a seam along the corners of the bottom seam so give them the box shape. Roll half of it down and that's it. You can use them just like that or sew a few together like I did and hang them somewhere. Very quick and easy!
