First of all, Happy September! Did you say rabbit? Always say rabbit on the first day of the month and you'll have good luck for the whole month (from my 8th grade English teacher, Mrs. Lees~does anyone else do this??)
Thanks to everyone that shared their tray makeovers yesterday!
Welcome to day 2 of gift ideas!
This one is sooo simple, involves fabric (but no sewing), and can be done in less than 10 minutes~ right up my alley! I first saw it on my friend Amanda's blog, and she directed us to this tutorial from Tory at Funky & Delightful.

She gives great directions and gave me a great way to use the cork squares I found at a yard sale over the summer. I've also seen the cork squares at Hob Lob and at Target in their back to college section. You could also cover an existing mouse pad, like Amanda did:

Look at what the always fabulous
Kate@Centsational Girl did with hers (she also gives a fab tutorial):

Here's the one I did and am planning to do lots more---soooo easy:
Wouldn't these be cute to give with the trays from yesterday? These would be great for co-workers, teachers, secretaries, friends...keep your eyes open for cork or spare mousepads and cute fabric. You don't need much fabric at all~an old shirt or dress cut up would work perfectly.
If you've dressed up a mouse pad or seen others, go ahead and link them up so we can see:
