Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day Everyone!

Today we bring you some beautiful projects by guest Designer Diana Pena. Di has shared beautiful projects with us before but these really top all the others. The best thing about these projects is, they are GREEN! We have been trying to focus on all things GREEN this month and truly love doing our part for Mother Earth. Take a peak at Di's creations below and don't forget to see the GREEN blogs link at the bottom of the post where you can find lots of GREEN solutions and resources.

*All of these projects are made from Toilet Paper rolls, simply Amazing!!

Diana's note;

What I like about using the TP Rolls, besides of the obvious “Going Green”, is all the possibilities there are using the inside Tag, it can be used for journaling, to add photos or even for a gift card. Another important reason is the savings and since tha size is not that big you can use scraps of your favorite paper. =Di

TP Roll Tips:

Flatten under books or use a bone folder to fold the sides.

Keep them all together with a tight rubber band, that way they will take up less space in your craftroom and at the same time keep them flat.
