A simple ornament

happy sunday!  my family literally did nothing today- we didn't even make it to church.  infact we never got out of our pj's.  my hubby and i didn't feel that well when we woke up this morning and decided to stay home and take it easy. finally around 5 we started to perk up a little and got a few things done around the house.  i was able to make this little guy:

isn't he cute?  i can't take credit for the idea of it tho.  last week i went to my friend's house for a playdate and she was making these cute little guys.  she found it on pinterest.  all it is is a tp roll.  they look just as nice plain or dressed up.  your kids would love to make these.  i found some scraps in my bin and covered the outside of the roll.  then added a simple stamp to it (which had never been inked up) and added a little button.  took me about 15 mins to make- my kind of crafty!  here are few more views- the paper is red and white (from ctmh elemental)

  7. Is a tp roll a polite way of saying toilet paper? LOL. I am presuming that's what they are, but what an excellent way of recyling them without having to put them in the bin!
