SugarGem's Girly TP Mini Album

Ok so here is my first TP mini album. Yes that is a Toilet Paper mini. haha
When I asked my family to save toilet paper rolls they looked at me like I was crazy. This is the first project in a while that I actually like! Thanks for stopping bye and checking it out! These are so fun and easy to make. I think you will love making them.

If you want to make one of these mini's I recommend checking out Youtube. There are lots and lots of tutorials on these little gems. I prefer this one because she uses a binding rather than just putting the rings through the tp rolls.  The binding makes it look finished and a little fancier. I haven't done much with my tags I think I'm going to leave them plain for now to add photos. They would be cute inked up too. But you guys know I like things a little more simple! :)
I painted my rolls white with acrylic paint then covered them with All About the Girls mini paper stack by DCWV. The binding I used Fiskars scallop border punch. I made the crinkle ribbon myself with my stamp pads.  Special thanks to my good friend Jan for sending me the ribbon I just love it! I made the tags with light weight white chipboard with basic tags in SCAL.

If I can inspire one person today I have done my job!
