Well as my usual crafting fun time, I took a class and decided to learn some new ways of recycling idea's, maybe there was something out there I didn't know or haveen't done, and well it was something I haven't seen or done, and we made these cute tags from toilet paper tubes, yes that's right, toilet paper tubes, once emptied, not only can you turn these into scrapbooks and mementoes with pictures and notes, but give these to friends and family, add to gift bags or just share with friends. I found a great site to give you a good tutorials on these. wish I had found these before the class.lol but it was fun. and not expensive only $5.00 plus $3.00 for pictures, but I had fun!! anyways here is what I made, grab those tubes and get to crafting making these tubes. I started using paper towels tubes as well, little smaller but just the same. all you need is some scrapbook paper and or wrapping paper and glue sticks or glue dots/runner , paper cutter and your ready to get started, don't for get your hole puncher and or crop-a-dile for making holes or add your grommets as well for sturdier holding when adding binder rings. have fun!!!
Looking for something that is portable to take along with you for a trash bin or trash place to trash your scraps for whatever craft you do, look no further, I had this problem and finally found this idea of taking a paper bag and rolling down the top and tossing in your scraps from crafting, or scrapbooking, or maybe put a few in the car for the kids in the car. once full toss and your done. easy fast and quick, let kids decorate for fun. I use them for scrapbooking and or when i'm making my charms, like sharpening my colored pencils shavings. they fit great in the car or under your car seat. just an idea for those fas quick trash holder idea's.
