By 'a good underground' I was not advising you to travel by metro, just to use something underneath to avoid damage bij the stanley knife.
English is not my native language and I am not a professional translator, sorry for the slip-up.
The site is in Dutch. Here is a translation.
Making a cheerful doormat
Everyone happy (Dutch ‘in the wolken’, literally ‘in the clouds’ means ‘over the moon’ or ‘happy’.) thanks to this cheerful doormat! Make a doormat in the form of a cloud yourself. Quite simply from an ordinary doormat or a piece of carpet. That is a fun way to wipe your feet.
A doormat in front of the door is, especially in rainy Holland, rather a necessity. Otherwise you will have your whole house full of muddy and wet footsteps. There are doormats with texts ant prints on them, but a doormat in a nice shape we could not find. Therefore we got into action and made a doormat ourselves. Simply with an existing doormat and a stanley knife.
Needed for making a cheerful doormat
Doormat Entrelux grey 60x90 cm € 33,45 (Nijhof)
Technique for making the doormat
Draw a cloud on the backside of the doormat (see example).
Cut out the cloud, using a very sharp stanley knife and a good underground, for example a cutting mat or a wooden board. For difficult corners and curves you can also use a good pair of scissors.
Use a vacuum cleaner around the edges to remover the loose fluff.
I'd love to do #6 but the link takes me to a site in another language. :( Any idea how I could make it?
I love #1 and 6. Great roundup Capree.
