Hi everyone! It has been one whirlwind of a month for me. I got married on the 13th and I guess with all the running and trying to get everything ready I wore myself down. Thus I wound up with a stomach virus the day after I got married and when we got back in town I got a terrible head cold. I am just now starting to feel better and getting back into the swing of things.
This month on the Robin’s Nest store they have their Crackle Glitter cardstock and Neon Dew Drops on sale for 20% off. Also the Robin’s Nest is teaming up with Epiphany Crafts this month. I got to to try the Scalloped Circle punch out on all the projects I created.
When I first seen the Crackle Glitter cardstock my mind was thinking on all the possible things I could create for Spring and Easter . Also I wanted to create something that could hold treats or some goodies in it too. I came up with this cute little toilet paper roll treat holder which was so easy and quick to make. Then I started envisioning different holidays I could create using toilet paper rolls and I came up with a USA/4th of July and a Fall/Thanksgiving theme also.

First off you will need three empty toilet paper rolls for these projects. I painted the inside of each of the rolls and let them dry. I used Mod Podge and coated the inside generously and then I used a big binder clip and pinched the bottom of the tube closed with it. Let the roll dry real well before you remove the binder clip.
Now I’m are ready to decorate. Measure the TP roll and cut a piece of Pink Glitter Crackle cardstock to cover and then Mod Podge to roll. I then cut a 2 inch strip of lime green polk a dot tissue paper and then folded in half to give me a 1 inch strip. I glued one strip at a time to the inside of the roll and cut to make fringe. I did this four times to make it look full and fluffy. Then I cut various sizes of cardstock and adhere to the top. I added a butterfly image to the front and then I used one of the Epiphany Crafts Clear Scalloped Circle 25 and stuck over the butterfly for added interest.
Now I added fringe to the bottom of the tube. I used the same steps as above but only added two rows of fringe. I used a piece of the Purple Glitter Crackle cardstock and Sizzix Tasteful Trim die to cut out the oval looking trim which I glued over the edge of the tissue fridge I had created at the bottom of the TP roll. Then I added the cute Neon Mini Dew Drops to the center of each oval. I punch small holes on each side of the roll and threaded lace through the whole and tied off.
Again thanks for stopping by and I hope this inspires you to create something fun for yourself and remember to enjoying creating!!! 🙂
