Now on to my project for the day... I made a little Christmas ornament out of toilet paper rolls. For those of you who know me, you know by now that I am loving creating things from tp rolls! I got the idea for this little ornament from a Christmas wreath that I made last week. I thought well those little flowers also look like snowflakes! So here is my ornament:


I want to fill my tree with these this year.


I used a little tag from the Icons from Authentique's Journey line and tied a little bit of Denim twine from The Twinery.

make sure you become a follower of my blog or my facebook page! I plan to make lots more of these and I will post a tutorial in the next couple of weeks so you can make your own tp roll ornaments! They are so simple and inexpensive to make and oh so cute!

Now hop right along and see what Hera has in store for you today!!!
