TP Book

This project has been a work in progress for about a month. I finally found just the right paper to complete my book. Originally, I found some real cute monkey paper at Michaels and was trying to find a way to use it. I was thinking about making it into a 5 Little Monkey book of somesort for my son. It was just not working for me ~ the monkeys were too big and I just did not get a good vibe.

Instead I pulled out a pack of Creative Memories paper that I bought a while back. I just love these colors! I had to get some new ribbon in just the right shades of green, blue & orange.

I used my cricut to cut out the tags and the stars. I painted the edges of the tp rolls first with black paint. I inked the edges of the paper and tags with a stamp pad.

Your mini is really pretty. Love all the beautiful colors. I'm working on my first one, it's almost done. I hope it's half as nice as yours. Shari (cricutrookie)

Great job! I saved about 20 rolls to try this, but couldn't get it to uncurl. What's your secret???

Flatten with a bone folder or ruler to crease it. Then stack some heavy books or boxes on top of them for a couple of days. I put my photo box full of photos on mine!!

Love this project. I may have to try this. I wonder how this would be with Paper Towel Rolls...really long?.... hmmmm

Joni ~ you could trim the paper towel rolls down. You could even make them different lengths kind of like the word books....
