Love love LOVE this idea. I actually saved a couple of toilet rolls for the last PC call, trying to think of a creative way to use them, and never got to them - I think this is SO cool!! And you did such a fantastic job with them!!

I just love how your imagination takes hold of a simple idea and it becomes a beautiful creation! These treat holders are gorgeous! And the cards are beauties too. This is definitely going into my file folder for use in the future.


melissa you never cease to amaze me your work and ideas just get better and better these colors are wonderful


holy cow....i'm so in love with these! i had an entire grocery paper sack full of TP tubes and had to throw them away when we moved. i'm in despair. it's a good thing TP is one of those things that moves quickly and i should have a stash in no time. QUESTIONS: does your machine bog up when you put the patterned paper, which i assume is NOT cardstock, lace and the two layers of the TP tube? or does it move through like clockwork? do you use a heavy duty needle? do you have to push the entire thing through the dog feed? i would LOVE it if you would take the time to answer these questions. i love you and all that you do. you're my muse....thanks for the constant inspiration. wish i could be a fly on the wall in your studio.

Just goes to show you how putting a variety of items together can make something so outstanding!


I am just in awe...and drooling!

My goodness...I love visiting your blog! Your creations are always beautiful!

Renee VanEpps

These are all so beautiful Melissa!! Would never have guessed they were once just a lowly toilet paper roll!! I have to ask - when you sew things like that, or say chipboard pieces, is there a certain needle or tension that should be used on the machine, or can you basically stitch through anything as long as you go really slow? TIA!

Vicki - Paper Squirrel

What an ingenious idea to use the toilet paper roll! Thanks for passing this along and showing us your beautiful interpretations.


Just beautiful, as always.
