Thrifty Thursday

Happy Thursday!  Today is Thrifty Thursday on My Creative Time Blog. The goal was to create a project using scraps/leftovers or a recycled item. I went for both!!  Using scraps, I made a toilet paper tube into a treat holder!  In my house the "4 square" rule doesn't apply and my husband thinks we "eat" the tissue!  Now I can show him that it's all cause I need the tubes ~ lol!!  Here are the containers I made (filled with chocolates!) which will hang nicely on my kid's door handles on Valentine's Day!

Product List:
Paper: Echo Park
My Creative Time Products: Stitched Curly Label Die
Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Dies
100% Sweetness Stamp Set
Ribbon, Twine, Button and Clothes Pin
