Loo Roll Magic

Hi and welcome back to my blog sorry i havent updated for a while i have been having some down days.

My latest make is made from empty loo rolls lol i have a huge stack of them lol 

Here how i made my finished project

I took 3 Loo roll tubes and squashed them, Make sure if the is any stamp on them the squash with the stamp mark in the middle as you can see in top right pic.

Next go round the edge with your chosen colours and also a strip on the inside edge of the rolls too, (i am only doing 3 pages here) you may make as many pages as you wish, also punch holes i have done mine at the long edge but it can also be done on the shorter edge, I have dotted a little bit of glue on the inside of one end as i want to put tags inside when i have finished.

 Next choose your paper i used the papers i got free in a crafting mag
I cut out rectangles to fit the roll but left an edge (stick one side of the paper then punch and repeat on the other side)

 I added Magnolia stamped images also in shades of green
And for the reverse I used butterflies in coordinated papers and cosmic shimmer on the first one, White metal corners and punches flowers coloured in shades of green with cosmic shimmer centres, and one the last i added a postcard image also from the free papers so a message can be added. To hold it all together you can use ribbon or metal rings it's up to you.

Thank you for taking the time to look through my latest make xxxx
