Peachy Keen Challenge 3: Paper Roll!

Hi crafty friends:

This challenge consist in show what you can do with an empty toilet paper roll I never made a project using paper rolls, so this is a great challenge to make something different for me.

I decided to create a tree with the paper roll, so that's what I made.  I covered the roll with brown paper from DCWV All About Boys Stack.  Then, I cut a window with Labels Sixteen from Spellbinder cut at 1 1/2'' x 1 1/2''.  The hearts in the window I made with SU heart punch.  For the bottom, I used Standard Circles Large cut at 1 7/8'' to cover them.  For the grass, I cut two 1'' stripes with two different paper types; one pattern paper and other olive green; then punch with Fiskars grass punch.   

The squirrel and the caterpillar is from Create a Critter Cartridge cut at 1.5''.  I used my Gypsy to hide the faces mark for both images.  I stamped the caterpillar face with PK 490 - Everyday Character Faces and PK 754 - Critter Faces for the squirrel.  The sign is from CTMH - Art Philosophy Cartridge cut at 1'' and .90''.  The sentiment is from MCT with Emma calls Teeny Tags Greetings.

What is inside the tree?  Well, I put a treat bag with kisses and chocolate hearts from Hershey.  Isn't that yummy?  I hope you enjoy.



Thanks for stopping by and happy day!
