Donna Downey - Trash to Treasure: toilet paper tubes
Donna Downey has her new newsletter out, The Creative Playground each month she is posting a challenge and this month it was toilet rolls. She was right I spent a few days coming up with ideas of what to do with the humble roll, as it would happen instead of having 28 of them laying around I had 3! So instead of the butterflied covered extravaganza I was planning I did slices, I love it though it is little and cute, it measures 14cm square and I am going to use it as an inspiration folder.

For some reason Michael was quiet emphatic about never slicing toilet rolls on the scroll saw again. I'm standing watching saying you can get another slice out of that one and I got 'the look'
