TP Tube book
Ah, the uses of recycled materials. This Halloween swap was created using TP tubes, flattened to make little pockets for tags. Little pockets, big fun to make.
I sprayed the tubes with Lysol first (just bein' careful), let dry and then flattened them in my Big Shot. Measured some patterned paper to wrap each, and embellished, with stamps, clip art, fibers dye cuts, etc.
I drew a coffin shape freehand on a cereal box and cut two, painting them grey. The book is four tubes with tags, layered between coffins, bound with two rings and tied off with fibers.
I will use the tubes idea again for cards and such, though I'm thinking of just cutting up paper towel or wrapping paper rolls.
