As you can probably tell, I've been on a crafting vacation since the holidays and had to get back in gear to make some samples just for you! To get me in the mood, I went shopping and found some oh so cute Valentine's day stuff to play with. Do you like my little heart shaped gumball machine? Akemi LOVES gumball machines, and got a Hello Kitty one for Christmas this year. She claimed that was her best present this year. This gumball machine reminded me of her.
What you see here is another take on the toilet paper roll mini album. Yes, I've been watching all those Youtube videos on how to make one and put my own spin on it by changing it up a bit and making it into a coupon book instead of a mini album. When I was young, I used to always make coupon books for mom once I figured out that I could give her something without spending a lot of money. I don't think she ever used any of her coupons, but I'm sure she got a kick out of it. My husband made me one when we were still dating. I wonder if those coupons are still valid? So when you pull on the tab, the coupon comes out. I guess I cut the card too small, so it kept falling out of the toilet paper roll. To hold it in place, I attached a brad to the tab, then used the brad to hook the coupon onto the cover.
Here's the second page... I just punched out some harts out of kraft cardstock and stamped them with my new Hero Arts conversation hearts clear stamps. I love this set! I had my husband in mind when I came up with this coupon! If you read the part below the nap it states that it "Excludes doggie interruptions". My dog Kiki will seek out anyone who is napping and snuggle up against you.
Here's the last coupon... My daughter is really really really into board games right now. We started with Monopoly, then Clue, and she just got Yahtzee, so we are learning how to play that now. I didn't realize just how fun Clue is! Can you believe me and my husband never played that game before?
Well, hope this has inspired you to try out the toilet paper mini album for yourself. Its really easy to do! And don't forget my girl Debi... she has some cute samples to share with you too! Check back tomorrow for more fun!
