ID: MC July/11 - TP Rolls - HB Booklet card
5"w (including ribbons) x 4"h

Created: July 29, 2011

I came across a toilet paper roll booklet ( and decided I had to make one and this is the results. Love it.

All the quotes and sentiments are from Quietfire Design.

I had used my TP rolls for another project so had to scrounge around to find more in my stashes... I also realized not all TP rolls were the same size. I had white ones from eons ago that were almost an 1" longer than the rolls I'm using today.

Cover with the "Just for you" flap out of t he way.

So I again went in to my stash and found some great colored paper towels - yes from eons ago. Squished the rolls as flat as they would go, then used a glue stick to cover them with the paper towels, working some in to the inside. When the 4 rolls were covered I used my Zutter to bind them.

Now came the decorating... the 2 butterflies on the front are made from basic paper flowers with one petal removed for the large wings, and then just a couple of smaller petals for the smaller wings. Then I added beads for the bodies and some floral stamen.

So the butterflies above and this really cool trick, I found on ( To add a row of beads to a project use a sewing pin to load the beads on, put your dab of hot glue, press the beads down into the glue, then remove the pin. So easy. Sheesh!!

The flourish is Tim's Elegant Flourish die and using an empty Coke box.

 I used Marianne Design die set to make the white portion of the felt flower (LR0162). I then just cut a piece of the yellow felt in a wavy length and twisted it in to the center. adhered it all with a hot glue gun. The leaf flourish Heartfelt Creations Belle Rose #HCD712 and cut from another decorated paper from eons ago. It was a resist design. That's the only problem from using stuff from long ago - can't remember what I used to make it. Sorry!! Stamped the sentiment "Just Because" with Black Onyx.


Another Tim's flourishes from the coke box. The sunflower is a polymer clay flower I made and then colored with bright yellow acrylic paint and brown for the center, then lightly wiped some off. The "My Friend" is stamped with the black on white cardstock, colored with distress "Worn Lipstick and Aged Mahogany, heart punched out, then inserted in the binding. The word "you're" was hand written with a Micron pen.


I stamped the quote with the black, sponged some Peeled Paint and Broken China all over, then added the Bubble border (EK Success) sponging that with the Broken China too. The lace butterfly is from a scrap strip I had laying around. I cut around each of the petal type shapes and then reconfigured them into the butterfly shape. Added some floral stamen. The hint of the quote underneath is a repeat of the one on top.

 The tags made for the inserts on Core 'Dinations cardstock in various happy colors. I put one end into a Sizzix "Frame Back Ornate #3" die. Then trimmed it to fit into the slot. Colorful ribbons stapled to the edge with Tim's mini fastener. Took me a while to use this gadget, but I sure do love it now.

The last tag will be used for a personal note.
