Mouse Pad with No Rubber or Plastic

Mouse Pad with No Rubber or Plastic
What you Need:

Old piece of cardboard
Cutting knife
Old piece of soft fabric
Straight edge


Use the straight edge and knife to cut cardboard to the desired size. If you like a thicker mouse pad, you can cut multiple pieces to the same size and then stack them on top of each other.

Lay the cardboard piece(s) on top of the fabric and put glue on the cardboard and then fold the fabric on all 4 sides, pulling it tightly as you fold. Cover the glue-side with a piece of wax paper and cover with some weighted objects to help hold it together as the glue dries.

After the glue has dried, remove the weights and wax paper and flip your mouse pad over to use.


You can dye the fabric any variety of colors before making the mouse pad. Just make sure it is fully dry before gluing.
