FSC And Jumbo Toilet Roll Storage For Lauren

Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight have a theme of  “Sew What” (all about the sewing) which was picked by the lovely Claire.

 ‘OMG’ I am so ashamed to say that I am addicted to jumbo toilet roll holders, see my first post here.  Well it’s just my latest fad really, recycling them into receptacles for anything you like.

I am using mine at the moment for storage of utensils on my desk (don’t even ask how many I have got on the desk.  Just waiting to take a photo of the one I made for Andrew’s desk at work.  With a little imagination you can turn them into beautiful plant pot holders.  Remember to line with a little plastic bag or place the plant pot into a plastic bag so that you can add water.  The diameter of these jumbo rolls are 3¼ inches across and the depth is 3½ inches.

Both my granddaughters have taken after me with their crafty ways.  Amber is the artist in the family she loves anything to do with paints and Lauren is the sewer.  I used to sew for England once upon a time.  Clothes, curtains, cushions, quilts anything that was to do with material was my thing.

I have made this storage holder for Lauren so she can store all her little bits and bobs.  The adorable girly stamp you can find here from Flonz’s store and the little scissor stamp is an Indigo Blu here.  The dress form stamp is from Stampin Up.

I am not sure she will like this as anything vintage, aged and distressed is not her thing but if not then Mummy will probably find a use for it.

I would love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.  Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.

    ummm…a LARGE toilet roll holder hey! I am not going there hehehe…but what you have done with it is absolutely divine. And I could think of heaps of uses for it here. I’m sure Lauren would just like to have it as keepsake, at least, from her nan.
    I hope you and Andrew are having a wonderful Easter Shirley.
