Mini Album from Toliet Paper Rolls...my first!


My first mini-album from toliet paper rolls.  I had more fun with this.  I used 7 empty rolls, which I ironed flat.  Then made long tags to fit in each one.  I made the tag pulls using "from my kitchen" cartridge - the tag feature and glued them to my tags, punched with a hole punch and added a ribbon pull.  This album is a book for my three year old granddaughter, Lexi.  Random things she has done at Nana and Papa's house this year.  From collecting and making maple syrup - her pet chicken rescue, "Tuesday" to eating peas in the garden with Papa....a memory for her to take with her.  I have lots of ideas to make the book better...but there is always next time.

these came out really nice - love the tags!! Lexi is going to have so many good memories at her nana's house, like we did with Grandma - she is a lucky little girl.

This is beautiful! Thanks for linking it. And what a good idea to iron flat your rolls! I would have never thought of that. I knew there was a reason we bought that iron. LOL
