Infarrantly Creative. Great for birthday party goodies, you could easily customize it to fit any holiday theme! I love thrifty party favors.
Today's craft starts with a paper towel roll.
I laid the roll on some 12 x 12 scrapbook paper and cut it to fit the length and enough to go around and just barely overlap on the seams. Some good old Elmer's glue held the paper down just fine, but I placed a strip of Scotch tape on the bottom seam for extra hold.
I inked the edges of the tube with blue ink to coordinate with the paper and then hot glued one end shut.
After filling the favor with treats, I hot glued the other end shut and got to work on some embellishments. I lost my acrylic crown stamp, so I had to draw that on. If you are organized, you could just not lose your stamp and use it, unlike some people.
I closed the other end a different way to see which look I liked better. You can decide for yourself.
I love embellishing stuff.
I had some solid colored papers, clear acrylic stamps, and gift ribbon in my craft stash, so I used those to layer and make a little extra "fluff" for the favor.
I used some scrap paper to make a "ring" to go around the roll:
Again, these would be great for just about any holiday party. Preschoolers everywhere would love you, and you can't beat the price! These didn't cost me a dime.
