Toilet Paper Roll Mini Album

Toilet Paper Roll Mini Album

I really need to get my head screwed on straight! I accidently published this project to my main blog, but really its not much of a tutorial yet some inspiration... I will just repost it here!

You are never going to believe what my project is made out of today...TOILET PAPER ROLLS! Yes, nothing like recycling those lovely rolls on a project handmade from the heart! So basically the project today is going to be mostly self explanatory but inspirational! I only used 4 rolls because honestly, I didn't place them under anything so they wouldn't flatten out like I was hoping. This would be easy for you though, you would just need to set them under some books or a case of soda for a few days, then they would flatten right up for ya! I like to start out by making my distressed paper flowers first. I made more than I needed. I am not using any pictures in this album, but rather definitions. On the front of my album, I will put "Definitions of You" but I need to actually type and print that out.  I just measured out my rolls and cut the paper 1/8 of an inch less than that. Then, I decorated each roll with flowers and Close To My Heart Patterned Paper.  I used CTMH NEW Circle Maker to make the tabs on each roll, and cut a piece of brown cardstock to fit inside to hide each definition. The stamp set I used is State Of Mind {D1416}

  1. These are fab! I haven't made one in awhile...I know I have saved many of these. Those flowers and paper are great choices.
