Heart #10 – Toliet Paper Tube Valentine

Now that is an unusual description but I couldn’t think of what else to say – it’s a Valentine made from a Toilet Paper cardboard tube.  Who would have thought to use that to make a candy holder – not me.  That’s because this is another swap from the Stampin’ Up! Leadership conference – but I can’t tell you who created it there is no name on it – either it wasn’t there at all or I lost it somewhere between Orlando and here – sorry about that.

So the base of this project is the card board center of the toilet paper roll – it’s squished at one end and glued shut.  Then covered with Designer Paper and decorated.  Inside is the candy and it is stuck in between a strip of card stock so you can just pull it out by the tails sticking out the top.
