Tag Album - The Beginning

    Well toilet paper roll albums seem to be the latest trend and I have jumped on the bandwagon.  OK, so I am funny about stuff couldn't bring myself to use a real tp roll so I used one from the paper towel and cut it to size. I am going to make one every couple weeks and add a tag to it (eventually).  This is my first "page" and I think it came out kinda cute.  I just luv me some House Mouse (as if you didn't know that by now).

     I wasn't sure how I wanted to put my album together but decided to add a tag on one end with a hole for a ring and lots of ribbon.  I didn't want to loose any of the actual pocket for my tag.  I think it's going to work out fine.

     I had fun with the embellishments as you can tell.  It just seemed to go with the paper. I also added glitter to the mouses bowl.  It really matches the glittery orange stripe in the paper.  I haven't decided yet what paper I'll use on the next pages, but I'm sure it will be something similar.  I am thinking of adding bible quotes to the tags and giving this to my twin sis.

  1. Well it sure is cute. Love the colors. What a cool idea to put special verses on the tags.

  2. What a neat idea. You must get around to see this stuff all over. I would love to see more of them. Could we not use cereal box pieces instead of toilet rolls or does it have to bend? I LOVE THE WAY YOU COLORED THE MOUSE!!!
