WHAT are you making Wednesday?.................

Hello Everyone!
I have been discovering some wonderful blogs, and am continually thrilled by what I see on the ones I visit often.
This week is more of the "little pockets" I have been emailed and and asked for the tutorial, but it was a limited giveaway I don't have permission to share. I respect the gift and the giver. However I can tell you how I made them! These were in a Stampington publication, also made with wax. I still haven't ventured there.

They are made from recycled paper towel tubes! Yep! You read it right!

1. Measure about 3 inches of paper towel tube, and cut. You can also add a curve to the top.

2. Pinch the sides so they form kind of a <> shape.

3. Cover them with paper and decorate how you like.

4. I glued fringe into the bottom, then pinched and glued it closed.

5. I punched holes in the sides, and threaded wire through the top, to which I added beads to, then twisted the sides around to hold.

6. Add a piece of tulle ribbon, gluing a button or other pretties, add glitter if you like.

7. Fill with a little gift and some crinkle shred.

I hope this makes sense, I didn't take pictures.

I hope you are having a wonderful week, thanks so much for visiting me!

  9. Hubby asked me this very evening if I needed any more toilet roll tubes. I stupidly told him I had enough saved already. Now why didn't I read your blog before speaking! Your little pockets and tutorial for them are great.

  10. They are so sweet, you could make little Christmas ones and hang them on the tree with a little trinket or chocolate in them, and hand them out on Christmas day. Thank you for sharing Jody, you are so sweet. I am sure I was 'lead' to your blog and am so happy I was.
    Hugs Sandi xx
