Recycling

Hi guys I saw this idea on,the polka doodles blog,and decided to give it a try,not sure if this is right but this is my version.
I took some toilet roll holders,folded them in half and stuck,each end down,leaving the other end open.
I then covered all the rolls with card stock,placed an old picture from a book on the front and back,then covered them over with acetate.
I then used my,Cinch to punch holes into the glued ends of the toilet rolls,leaving the other ends open. Then just finished with ribbon,and some charms,these are the perfect size for ATC's and Tags,and a great gift idea too.
Hope you like it,




I did add paper to the insides too after glueing them so you could not see the inside of the toilet rolls,gave it a more profesional finish.
I have also been asked to be one of the administrators on the outlaw,scrapbooking forum,the link to the shop were you can save so much money is here Dear Jenette,has asked me to help with the vintage,and altered art section so watch this space as they say,this is the badge if you have not seen it before,I know there are so many people that buy from this site,because of the great savings.
Challenges,

CES anything but xmas

Cheryl you are a girl after my own heart..Toilet roll tag holders are such fun to make. If you want to make the job a little easier you can paint the insides with acrylic paint. Hugs Annette x

Sherryn said...

These are fun to make. To fold them nice and flat you can run them through the cuttlebug. Yours looks really great. xx
