I’m in no shortage of these at my house so when I saw Somerset Life’s ‘Paper Roll’ challenge I thought I’d give it a try.
And lest you think all rolls are created equal, I have to show you the difference.
The sturdier tube on the right is Charmin.
(Isn’t it funny how we buy the same brand of bathroom tissue we were ‘raised’ on?)
Someone in my house buys whatever’s on sale. That’s the roll on the left.
I used my preferred rolls to make a butterfly napkin ring and place card set.
The napkin ring is half a tube covered with paper and a scalloped book page. Then I cut a measured strip of coordinating paper and stamped it with a butterfly in the middle.
Then I cut around the wings with my swivel x-acto knife…
The place card was made by flattening 2/3 of a tube and cutting along one side…
Wouldn’t these be cute at a little girl’s tea party?
I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
Knox and I will be leaving for the UK in only 4 more days! I’m so excited! I’ll be getting some pink streaks in my hair for the trip and Knox will be donning some ultra cool adventure hair as well. Photos to come!
Thanks for coming by!
