Toilet Paper Mini Album for Valentine's Day

It's been snowing here since yesterday morning, the snow is the consistency of powdered laundry detergent.
The snow is very pretty but it's created some icy roads and for that reason, I don't have to go to work today.
It's a good day!

I finished up my mini album that I made from empty toilet paper rolls.
This picture shows four but I ended up using six of these.


My cover, I really love this cupid.


When I went to Michael's, I picked up the smaller pack of Valentine's scrapbook paper.
I didn't want to have a lot of scrap leftovers when I was done.
The embellishments on the left side were actually from aValentines card kit that was on clearance.


For this mini album, I really tried to stay in the pink color family as much as possible.

The pages aren't big...4 1/2" wide and 2 3/4" long.


I made the flower with the pearl in it, using a die from Die-namics.


This is a very much a mini album for a little girl..


who lives in Japan....
Do they celebrate Valentine's Day in Japan?
I sure hope so..


The back cover, I love this paper.


And no mini album is complete until lots of fibers are added.

 And some cute charms for added bling.

I'm linking to the parties listed at the top of my blog.

Have a great Monday!

Thanks for the nice compliments on my blog! :) Great job on the TP roll album, I've made several of these myself! I haven't made them w/the TP rolls closed good idea. I've always done it w/them open & I slide a piece of paper in there loose for an extra page in each one. Have you made the coffee cup albums yet? I've got some of those on my blog too. :) Anyway cute album, love it! :)

Great Album! Never know it was TP rolls!
I'm not getting how you used the TP rolls!???

Did you cut them and than put the paper over it like a chip board book?
Guess I'm dense today!
Thanks for sharing!

Nikki said...

I'm confused as to how you used the paper rolls. Can you explain a little?

I have been reading a lot on here and have picked up some great ideas. You are so inspirational. Wished I would take the time to write my own blog – but I’m afraid I’m not persistent and nobody would read it anyway ) – so I keep coming back and enjoy your stories
