SERIOUSLY!!!

Hi Everyone,
I'm late today in posting but it's the holiday weekend and I'm pretty sure I'll be late all week trying to catch up.  It's the little things in life that just throw me for a loop.
Anyway,  I wanted to share a personal discovery ! I can no longer just have a card board cylinder that I buy stay just a plain old cardboard cylinder... I pick it up, and the first thought I have is how can I make this pretty... LOL someone forgot to tell me once you start to alter one thing you just want to alter everything that comes into your life.  Let me show you....

Perfectly good packaging to hold some chipboard letters that I bought, could I leave it alone...OH NO...

LOL look what some paper stickers ribbon and I am Roses can do for a plain old card board cylinder...I'm pretty sure I'm obsessed is there anyway to save me...???

  1. Great idea! Very cute result! I'm the same way...I see some cute packaging and I have to hang onto it because I might be able to turn it into something else!

  2. Judy, I would contact the T.V. show "Intervention" for you but then I may have to confront my own obsession! Every single time I remove the empty paper towel tube I have heart palpatations tossing it in the garbage can, I'm so glad I'm not the only one! LOL! The cylinder is very cute, much prettier then the package it was in to begin with!

  4. Hello Judy. This is fabulous sweetie. You are not alone my friend, I think all crafters hang onto boxes, paper etc, thinking one day it will come in useful. This is just beautiful, I love it. Happy crafting.

  6. I love this!! Imagine how dull the world would be if there were not people who liked to 'bling' things up. LOL You made it look beautiful AND you recycled it.
