A Few Things to Share

Hi all,
All i can say is BRRRRR. I think like a few people when you first see the snow falling its great, seems something magical about it BUT after a while of being stuck in the house and all the terrible accidents around you start to dread getting up to another day of it :(
but seen as i am stuck in the house i have managed to get some crafting done, but no cards yet
I watched a few demos on YouTube about toilet roll mini albums and thought i would have a go well as you can see bellow one turned into two lol
and toilet roll tubes are something we have plenty of in our house, think its something to do with their being mainly girls it drives my other half Dave mad but guess know he knows how we feel about the whole seat issue lol
Here is a few pics of the first one i made:-

and after seeing it my daughter bobbie asked if i could make one for a friends birthday who loved butterfly's so would i include them in it and here it is :-

These are great for using up lots of leftovers and scraps of ribbon so i can see me being overrun with then soon hehe

Thanks for looking hugs and warm wishes
keep safe

Oh wow Mel, such gorgeous little mini albums and what wonderful keepsakes they will make, The are so beautifully decorated and each one must have taken ages to put together...I'm not at all surprised that Bobbie wanted one for her friend :) Donna x
