Using the cardboard center from tape roll

With the on-line shop I go though rolls of tape. I have been keeping the cardboard centres and decided to put them to use. So this is what I came up with - something for Shanices earrings


Finished P


You will need: Cardboard centre from roll of tape, scraps of paper, embellishments, glue that dries clear & double sided tape.


Start by painting the inside of the cardboard roll & leave to dry


Step 1


 Then from chipboard cut a circle that's slightly bigger for the base


Step 2


Use double sided tape & cover with patterned paper


Step 3 
 Step 3. 

Then cover the outside of the cardboard roll


Step 4


Add glue to the bottom bit and stick down in the centre of the base


Step 5


Step 5. 
Then embellish & you are done

Let's Scrap Sketch 9-22-10

92210 
This is my take on the Let's Scrap sketch 9-22-10


Dad 
While I was busy with this LO last night I stabbed my finger with a craft knife. I had a look and there was no blood so I started sticking down my stars and he next thing there is blood on the 1st page of the layout. So I had to start all over again!!!  Very frustrating.


Thanks for looking :)


 


 



Cards

Hat Card


B&F 
 
I'm busy making a box filled with handmade cards for a friend. I have only managed to make 2 in the last 2 weeks. 


I made the hat using a stencil I bought ages ago and the supplier who made these stencils has vanished!!! :( 


Thanks for looking.....
