Fabulous Friend

Hope everyone is having a great week. It's time for another Stamper's Dream project. I decided to make my very first TP (tissue paper roll) mini. All this consists of is using empty tissue paper rolls. I flattened five rolls out using my bone folder. I then painted the base with brown acrylic paint and my Dark Chocolate Truffle stain. The paper collection I used is Prima Reflections. These papers are gorgeous, I love the jewel tones. All the papers/tags that I cut were edged with Jumbo Java chalk ink.

All the sentiments came from the stamp set Fabulous Friend. The pleated sheer brown trim is from May Arts. The larger flowers throughout the mini are from Kaisercraft, Paper Blooms.

I also used the Rose & Pearls Vintage Sparklers from Webster's Pages. I used seam binding to bind the mini together. The inside pages were kept pretty simple so that it wouldn't be too bulky.

The tags fit perfectly inside the pockets of the pages. They were cut to size and I attached seam binding through the eyelets so that it would be easy to pull them out.

This mini was made for a Pay It Forward project circulating Facebook. I hope my recipient loves it as much as I do. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi Jo. This is awesome! I would love so see a tutorial on this. I have never made a tissue album before. I love, love the colors that you have used and all your flowers are just wonderful! Hugs, Lisa G
