Toilet Tissue Rolls!! I have family and friends save paper towel and toilet tissue rolls for me. I figured I better do something with them and QUICK!!
The first 12 rolls I used a bone folder and pushed down on the edges to flatten them....my arms were sore. Then I put them on a table and put heavy books on top to flatten them even more.
The next day I started to flatten more and all of a sudden I had this bright idea!!
I have a Big Shot!!!
Put those TP rolls 2 at a time through the Big Shot and roll a couple of times and Voila!
Some I made with pull out tags that hold the gift card and some I just put a small flap with velcro to open and close.
I used Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!. I found it easier to use Sticky Strip Tape to adhere the paper to the roll instead of using glue.
On one end of the roll I closed it using the Sticky Strip Tape and on the the opposite end I just inked the inside edges.
I stamped, embossed, added embellishments I had fun!
Paper measurements ( give or take as some rolls are smaller) are 4 1/2" by 6"
