Easter Mini Album from Empty Toilet Paper Roll

Back in January, I showed a mini album that I made for
Valentine's Day out of empty toilet paper rolls..

This quickly become one of the most popular posts for my blog...

I've now made one for Easter...and it turned out cute..
IMHO (in my humble opinion!)


I used five empty toilet paper rolls..


The paper is from The Paper Studio - Sweet Pea - Hobby Lobby...


The embellishments are from Michaels...

Each page has room for a picture...

I added a couple of binder clips to attach a picture, tag...lots of possibilites...


The paper colors worked perfectly with the stickers...


Super easy with touches of glitter...


There is a seam where the paper comes together but once a picture is added, it'll be barely noticeable....


And the back page...love the butterfly...


I also included two butterfly charms..don't you just love the glitter!



I'm linking to these parties....

And I've got another fantastic giveaway starting Tuesday...key word: vintage Easter......

That is so amazing, Terry! I have a bunch of tp rolls to use as molds for candles, but making something like this would be great and fun to do!

Thanks for sharing.

So CUTE.. And love that little bunny tail at the end!!! (0; I am busy finishing up a mini album, and gathering up my materials for another mini album, but I just signed up for a Spring TP Roll mini album swap that I just know will be fun too! I don't know if I'm coming or going, but all I know for sure is that these TP Mini Albums are ADDICTING, aren't they?! This Spring one will be my 4th, and I just keep hoping that I'm learning and getting a little better and a little better as I go... Hope you had a nice weekend, and have a great week ahead! ~tina

I Love altered art and these are so pretty. Did you use the toilet paper rolls because of the thickness of the cardboard? Would shirt boxes works? Very nice..I have worked using grundge board but that is expensive..Your Valentine album rocks...
