Gift Card Holder from toilet paper roll. :-)

Hey there!

Did everyone have a Happy Easter?

How about that post title?  I love to recycle and nothing is ever safe in my house. I have been known to rescue cereal boxes from trash for chipboard! Today, I have another toilet paper roll project inspired by the current challenge at The Kraft Journal "Nature and Recycle". 
I flattened it and sealed one end to create a pocket. I wrapped it in apple patterned paper that brings the "nature" to this project. Using Blackboard Stock Paper for the die-cut from My Creative Time to use for the sentiment which was stamped using the chalkboard technique to tie the theme of the project together. Keeping with the recycle of the challenge, I added a strip of bus patterned paper down the center recycling some left over scraps from a previous make.
A Grungy Prim Shipping tag was used to hold the gift card. It was cut to size to fit the pocket and dressed up with some Decorative Washi Tape.  A pull tab was created using Black Twill Tape
Other Products used
Stamps: My Creative Time  - Write On Stamp Set
Dies: My Creative Time - Love To Learn
I hope you have enjoyed my recycle project.  We hope to see your Nature - Recycle creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be showcased in the "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher to The Kraft Outlet store.

Have a fabulous day!

Tammy...I was collecting *hoarding* those rolls for so long, using them for mini albums, but I never thought of this idea! I actually dropped mine in the recycle bin recently when purging my space, but you've given me reason to start saving again. This is totally adorable! Too clever lady!

Well if this isn't a great way to reuse something, I don't know what is! This would make a perfect teacher's gift for the end of the school year!
