Recycled Toilet Roll & Newspaper


It is trust me ….

Yippee it’s that time again poppets for the Let’s Ink It Up Challenge and for the first time you have a whole month to complete …. good news eh it means you can …. start it, leave it, start it, leave it, start it …. going dizzy now …. as long as you enter by the 30th November . What is the challenge you say …. Recycle It …. could be all the project or just part, it is entirely up to you. Please please remember no digi stamps allowed.

All the teamies creations are just a big stunning WOW, take your tea, coffee, wine with you, then go look at their individual blogs on the right side bar.

Two prizes up for grabs peeps and both you would seriously want to win …. First up for grabs is a $15 voucher for Whimsy Stamps and second a £15 voucher from Wags’n’Whiskers for Bunny Zoes.

This adorable little birdhouse is made with the end of a toilet roll tube …. washed and sterilised the roll first …. no really …. and what goes hand in hand with toilet roll …. newspaper of course!!!! and that is what the cone roof is made of. Used lots of the TH inky stuff …. my fingers looked as if I was a 60 a day smoker by the time I was finished but who cares when you’re having fun. Threw lots of glimmer mist over the hand made flower and for good measure threw it over the desk as well …. ooo what fun I was having, started running around the craft room singing …. OK muttering a few choice words I spilt it.
