Toilet Pater Tube Art


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.

P2040158                                                                                                    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!


  1. Really pretty! Imagine, from a TP tube. Amazing what pretties one can be inspired to make and recycle.

  2. These are beautiful! what a great idea! I think I must create one!! Thanks for sharing. How about a tutorial? ;)

  3. Hello Brandy, I couldn't find your e-mail address so I thought I'd let you know here that you have won one of my tags from the OWOH event. Please e-mail me you address and I will mail it out as soon as possible.
