How to Make Coffee Mug Mats

Using paper you have around the house along with some cork board, you can make your own mug mats. Children and adults can manage this project. The materials are non-toxic and, with supervision, children can cut their own materials. This is an inexpensive and fun craft that can be used for gift giving.
