During a stroll around World Market the other day, I came upon some little scroll notelets. I fell in love with them, they were just so super cute and different. However, I wasn't so much in love with the $1-99 price tag that came with each one!!!
So what is a girl to do when you know you just have to have some, but won't part with that much cash.................yip, you guessed right - work out a way to make your own and that's exactly what I did.
Here is the result....
and here it is open. Imagine how fun it would be to unroll it and discover the sweet words it holds inside:-)
To make it I used some dowel, furniture buttons (those ones you buy in the craft store) and some pretty paper from my scrapbook stash. I finished it off with some string and a bead, which holds it all neatly rolled up...............voila, a scroll notelet!!!!
I have already made 2 packs of them as gifts - I made 4 scrolls, using 2 different papers along the same theme. I then popped them in a cellophane bag and put a gift topper on the bag............very, very cute!!!
Here in Texas we're bracing for a freeze (snow in March.............where does that come from!!!)
I guess I'll have to be crafty as to how I use the time we'll be forced to spend indoors over the next day or so:-)
Enjoy your weekend and happy crafting.
