Make Seed Starting Pots From Newspaper

A great way to save money, and reduce use of plastic is to make your own seed starting pots with newspaper. It's easy!
Cut each full sheet of newspaper into four, and then fold each square into thirds.
Roll the folded paper around a small juice glass.
Remove the finished pot from the glass!

    How do you make the base ? I don't see any instructions on how to add this.

    I wonder if some of the junk magazines I get in the mail would work. Will the colored ink harm the plants?
