Adorable Little Girl Toilet Paper Roll Mini for scrapbook-crazy.com Toilet Paper Roll Mini Competition


Hi Everyone!
I haven't made a mini in awhile...
Here is a cute and quick toilet paper mini you can make for friends and family. I used the Cute World papers by Mindy Terasawa. Aren't they adorable?

Instructions:
1. Cover the toilet paper rolls with the designer papers.
2. Punch holes with my Crop-A-Dile and used pink XL eyelets.
3. Bind the mini with the pieces of string that come on shipping tags (I create tags, but remove the string).
4. Add some diecuts and ribbon from the collection, some cute buttons and flowers, and glossy accents to make images pop.
5. Create a closure with a hair rubber band and an apple button.
6. Made tag inserts using the designer papers, the Stampin' up punch, and bling.
I made this mini for my friend's baby girl.

Check out the Toilet Paper Roll Mini Competition at scrapbook-crazy.com. They have a contest til' tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Wednesday!

- Tools ~ Embossing Heat Tool, Corner Chomper (Deco)

Instructions:

Moxie Fab World - Tuesday Trigger: Halt! It's a Halter!



Hi Everyone!
Just found out that Moxie Fab World has challenges. Cool! Isn't the trigger pretty? I see the hibiscus flowers, but when I saw the black and red colors...it triggered me to use these beautiful flower rub-ons. I also thought of using my dressform stamp since the halter dress was on a dress form.
Have a great Wednesday!
