Saw a great step by step tutorial on minimatisse.blogspot.com and decided it's the perfect last project of the year. The library is getting rid of magazines (score!) and the bowls can be any size.
The other thing I like about this is the ability for students to easily prep their own materials after finishing the current project. It's the time of year where they are wrapping things up and are at various stages. I know as soon as they finish they can either tear pages out of magazines or start folding magazine pages. If you'd to do this project without having to write your own three-session lesson plan, you can get mine here.
