Thank you for making to the end of the hop. for my project
I recycled some toilet paper rolls to make these photo holders
I like me some toilet paper rolls, lol

I make them by cutting about an 1" of of one roll and then about 11/2" of the other. but you can decide how much. I just wanted then to be staggered in size. Then I used one of my sizzex die, Circles 1 to see what size I wanted the ends to be.

Then I glue one end down using the hot glue gun.
I filled them with rice so to weight them town to the very top. 
I didn't leave any room to make them into any sort of musical instrument, LOL
Then I glued the top on and painted them with a cream colored and 
I inked the edges with some chalk

I wrapped the pleated trim that I got from Karlas001
I added the decorative pin to make it look that it was holding it there.
I used one of the Tim Holtz memo pins and stuck it in the middle with a little hot glue and then added the flowers from Karlas001

Thanks for stopping and looking at my Home Decor project.

What a nice craft. You can also tun tissue paper rolls into other decor pieces such ad pencil holder, doll decors and hanging/ dangling decors. Just add pretty sequins, gems and colored papers o you can paint on it. The ideas are really unlimited especially when you have an imaginative mind.
