Step 2

Cut a piece of poster board the same height as the base, and wide enough so when you put it in the base, the edges overlap slightly.

Step 3

Glue a napkin to the poster board with a glue stick; trim excess fabric.

Step 4

Roll the poster board up and place it in the base. Replace the top.
