Mini Gift Bag... (Recycled T.P. Roll!)

Hi Everyone!  Hope you had a nice long weekend :)

Since I've been itching to make some things from empty tp rolls and I had picked up a little something for my mom (shhh!!! It's a surprise) I decided to make her a fun little package.  This is my version of this sweet little package made by Becky Shander at Art & Illumination. Thank you, Becky!

First... I cut the bottom of the tp roll with a victorian cut, sewed that end shut, inked the edge of the top & bottom. Hot glued some scrap burlap all the way around the middle. Added 4 paper flowers secured with a polka-dot brad to the front center of the burlap. Punched eyelet sized holes at the top, sides of the open end and set eyelets to hold the wire handle. Added some washi tape above and below the burlap strip for some added fun.

Hope you like it!

  4. Hi Lisa, First I just have to tell that this is just AWESOME!!! I love how sweet you have made this look. I have a small collection of TP rolls that I was saving for awhile and I think my whole family thinks I am nuts. Now I can just show them your blog in the morning. lol... You totally rocked this my friend. I have to tell you as well that I really really am enjoying your comments and visiting my blog lately. You are too sweet. Thanks so much. As for my daughter she thanks you for your comment as well. I am telling you this girl is going in the way of a tattoo artist. Like I said she keeps assuring my otherwise, but she is almost 16 and that gives her a couple more years before she starts to use the permanent stuff. lol. Hope you have a great day tomorrow. I am closing up my laptop and heading to bed. I need to be up by 5:30, but thankfully tomorrow is my half day and then I have a 3 day weekend. yay for me. :O) Hugs Lisa G
