I cant remember where I saw someone making these cute journals/art pieces, but I know I wanted to make one as soon as I saw them. I actually started hoarding our empty toilet paper rolls and for the first time in our marriage I was thankful that my hubby seldom throws the empty tube away!
This piece is not a journal-although I have 2 of those in the works-its just a little pretty with an inspirational quote tucked inside. I started making it with the intention of mailing it off to someone. I don’t know who I’ll mail it to, but I’m sure that will fall into place when the time is right.
It was fun to play with paper and glue again. I found it kinda soothing to sit and pick out coordinating papers and then the ribbons to trim it out with. I always love adding the embellishing fibers and the cute little charms and sparklies at the end! Its like the finishing touch and then I can sit back and smile. As I’m typing this I’ve thought of one more thing I want to do to this piece. I’m going to go back and take an ink pad to the edges of the tag and create a border. Its just to white and plain right now.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a lovely weekend!
