Toilet Paper Roll Book

Maybe that title got your attention! If you haven't seen these yet, they are the cutest little books ever! You make them by flattening empty toilet paper rolls and covering them with paper and you can put tags or ephemera in the ends. Here is my version:















I started this project at Nan's a few weeks ago and I finished it up last night. Gayle, Nan and I and a new friend, Lisa all met at Nan's house and worked on these little books! SO much fun and great to meet new friends!


I need to thank Tessa for nominating my blog for 2 awards:

Thanks, Tessa for noticing my little blog! :)

Happy creating this week!
