What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday #289

I almost missed it - but HERE is what's on my Workdesk this Wednesday - for the Stamping Grounds WOYWW#289!!
I've been home from Mexico for five days and I am head down, butt in the air WORKING, pumping out goodies for friends and family as fast as I can... and I today I want you to focus in on that low-ly little toilet paper roll on my desk because I am going to share a fantastic tip passed on to me by the FABULOUS Dawn Heuser-an extremely talented and inspirational Paper Artiste from Saskatchewan, Canada. HI DAWN! Grin

Using Mod Podge as a paste, roll a piece of decorative paper around your paper roll and then flatten when it has dried - The thinner the paper the easier it is to do.  Now close One end (I stapled it using my mini fastener) and decorate to your hearts content!  For What? you say...  Well once flattened these rolls create the perfect GIFT CARD HOLDER! Who KNEW?!?
I broke out some NUBUS (Never Before USED Schtuff) some Tim Holtz dies that I have been Hoarding and cut out my images using some scrap cardboard and then rubbed them with my Inka Gold pastes... Do I LOVE that stuff! 

A bit of ribbon and Stickles and Liquid Pearl and Voila!... totally awesome, personalized gift card holders... 

I will attach a small bit of ribbon to the back to that they can be hung from the tree and then kept as the 2014 tree ornaments as well... 

So now I have Another thing that I cannot bear to throw away... Grin!

I do hope you enjoyed this little photo class and please DO leave me a comment if you like what you see!
Cheers and Happy HOLIDAYS!

  2. I'm liking the butt up attitude! The loo roll thing is a fab idea, I really like the musical start and your chosen embellies, they look fab!

  4. Brilliant festive crafting ! Love the reindeer ! Ali #17

  5. Great ideas, and fantastically executed! Happy Christmas, hope the butt gets a chance to sit soon! Helen #1

  6. These are really cute. I threw a load out a little while ago cos, well, enough is enough. Did you know if you squash one end, then squash the other at 90 degrees to the first one you get a lovely little triangle thingy perfect for a small gift or a few sweets. This is a fab way to recycle. Hugz
