Toilet Paper Roll Mini Album


I'm so excited about this little album! It's so stinkin' cute, I can't stand it. It's made from toilet paper rolls and bits of ribbon and paper scraps. Scrapbooking and recycling at the same time... I love it! You need at least 3 toilet paper rolls. Flatten each one and cover with paper. Punch 2 holes for binder rings, in the end of each flattened roll. Put an eyelet in each hole and flatten with a crop-a-dile or eyelet setting tool. Put all three (or more) rolls on binder rings and close. Tie ribbons on each binder ring. Cut a tag approximately 2 1/2" x 4" for each roll. Put an eyelet with ribbon or staple a ribbon pull on each tag. Embellish tags and album pages (tp rolls) with photos, quotes, etc. Insert a tag in each pocket that was created by the flattened roll and there you have it! An adorable little album to keep or give as a gift, made from toilet paper rolls! So far, I've embellished the front of mine with a paper flower that I punched out of a coffee filter and then inked pink. I also had the "Live, Laugh, Love" chipboard piece that I put on the front. This was so much fun to make, that I want to make more. The problem is, there are only 2 of us and we don't use toilet paper fast enough for me to make another album for awhile! LOL!
Blessings! ~M~

Thanks, I'll take them! I'll post more pictures as I'm making one, showing the different steps. Gotta get more rolls first! This would be a good craft for the kids too.
