Tee’s pocket swap ~~ A Toilet Paper Roll Craft

Toilet Paper Roll Craft

Encouraged by Tiffany I participated in my first hand made swap. The project, a toilet paper roll craft, was to flatten a toilet paper roll and make something pretty with it. Sounds impossible, doesn’t it? Tee of Altered Paper sponsored the swap and you can see all the pockets here: Altered Paper

Kelly of Dreaming of Vintage was my swap partner and look at her, oh so pretty pocket.

It’s sooo cute! You can see a much better picture on her blog.

She actually cut her roll and flattened it, so it’s bigger than mine (below).

And I decorated the back thusly:


Both pockets were filled with as much as we could cram in them. Lots of paper stuff mostly. And lots of fun! So now I think I’m ready to do another swap. Although it was rather traumatic to get this done in a week’s time. Kinda like homework. So hard to do when you “have” to.

  1. WOW! I would have never thought a toilet paper roll could make such pretty art.


  2. Whodathunk a toilet paper roll could be transformed into such pretty little treasures. These are so fun!!

  3. Very creative and so fun! The toilet paper roll re-invented!

  4. What a great idea! I would’ve never thought to flatten it. They turned out so pretty! I guess it’s a good thing I wasn’t participating because mine would still look like a toilet paper roll with paper on it! *winks* Vanna

  5. Much Thanks to You and the other talented ladies for participating in the Whimsy Pocket Swap!
    Your pocket is absolutely Gorgeous! The Roses are Fantastic!
    And I love everything about it! Hugs,Tee
