Etceteras: homemade ribbon wreath

I saved the cardboard core from a roll of tape. I know there are others out there who do things like this… save things like tape rolls. At least I’m hoping that’s the case.

The cardboard roll measures about 2 inches and I’ve been saving it to make a tiny, miniature wreath.

With the ribbon I made from yesterday’s post, I rolled tiny little rosettes and glued them onto the cardboard. I rolled, I glued, I rolled, I glued…


I like the variegated shades of the rosettes and I’m happy my cardboard tape core has been put to good use.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

  14. What a wonderful way to use an old tape roll! I haven't ever saved a tape roll before, but only because I couldn't come up with a use for it. I'll be saving them now. :)
