Upcycle Toilet paper tubes

My family saves toilet paper tubes, labels, tins,bottle caps.... on and on.
 My husband says I have everyone well trained. Even my brothers and sisters save "stuff" for me!! Not only do I love getting the stuff I like to see what I can come up with.   Whatever I don't use I donate or put in the recycling bin.

Here are two Gift Card Holders I just made.

I use my Big Shot to flatten them. Just roll a few times back and forth.  Then I paint the inside edges ( and sometimes the sides) glue the bottom edges together add decorative paper.  The insert can be tricky. You do have to measure each roll as the sizes vary. Sometimes I stamp the tab or add decorative paper or just leave as is.  As always though I have to ink the edges...thats my thing  lol

I have sold a few in my Etsy store. You can check it out HERE

The Star Die Cut and Designer Series Paper (Occasions Catalog) is from Stampin Up.

I think I will make a table top using bottle caps...until next time.
Have a Great Day!!
