Reinvented Tissue Paper Roll

Isn't it fun when you can take something as humble and boring as an empty tissue paper roll and use it in a new way? I demonstrated a project at a workshop yesterday turning this tissue paper roll...
..into this fun little giftie!

I got the idea for this project from my upline, Karla Anders. These are quick and easy to make, and you can fill them with any assortment of goodies (I used Hershey's Kisses for this project). The measurements are as follows: the gift wrap tissue measures 14 1/2" x 12" and the designer paper is 4" x 6". Would you like a little tutorial on how to make these? If so, leave me a comment and I'll put one together.

Thanks again to Brook for hosting her workshop last night - I had a great time! 'Bye for now!

Stamps: Friends Never Fade, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Greenhouse Gala dsp
Ink: Basic Black, Baja Breeze marker, Cherry Cobbler marker
Accessories: 1 3/8" circle punch, Scallop punch, Marina Mist narrow taffeta ribbon

Adorable! I keep seeing projects like this that would be great for a "recycled class". I will keep checking back to see if you post a tutorial; I'll start saving my empty rolls. :)
