Published in Somerset Life, Spring 2013 and Paper Roll Bunnies

 

 I’m thrilled to have my pillow boxes featured in the new issue of Somerset Life.   I’m always amazed at the beauty and creativity in this publication.  It’s my favorite!  Thanks so much to the editors for the opportunity to share my work within these lovely pages. This issue will be on the news stands April 1st.

And if you need a last minute spring project for little ones visiting for the holiday, try these little bunnies.  I posted how to make these cute paper roll bunnies last spring and included the pattern.

This year I made some with a vintag-ey look using muted floral papers with some baker’s twine and paper flowers as embellishments.

If you need a fun and easy last minute spring craft, check out the original post from last year and choose whatever type of papers you like best.

I wish all of you a Happy Easter weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Paper Roll Pillow Boxes

Last spring I posted some cute rabbits made from paper rolls.

And just a few weeks ago I showed you how to turn paper rolls into

pretty napkin rings and place-card holders.

Now I hope you’ve been saving your rolls because here’s a third idea using this common recycle bin item:

Tiny pillow boxes!  Perfect for small gifts, money, gift-cards, candy…so many possibilities….

 

 

 

 

 

For gift-card holders you’ll need paper towel rolls.  Cut 7″ for a pillow box large enough to hold a standard gift card.

I cut some rings from the leftover roll, painted them red, and shaped them into hearts to tie onto the boxes.

It’s easy and fun to make these little pillow boxes and there are limitless ways to decorate them.

Thanks for coming by!
