A classic: the toilet roll card - CAS(E) this sketch #60

I embrace new tecniques and materials, but some times it's fun to take a step back and reuse some of the old one know. Like toilet rolls.

Do you remember how hot it was to use them some years ago? I used them for cards, minis, tags etc - covered them with pretty patterned papers and embellished my heart out.

Over the years my taste and style has changed and developed, and using the rolls the way I used to feel so - - - old fashioned!

Here is my "today's" take on the toilet roll card:

Corrugated paper: Fancy Pants. Patterned paper: Lemon Owl. Flower hair pin: Freckled Fawn
Coral hemp: Hemptique. Other hemp & rubon: unknown

Toilet rolls don't get completely flat even when bonefolded at the edges. I don't mind :-)

I got the idea for this card when I saw this fun sketch at CAS(E) this sketch:

I don't think I need to tell how I interpreted the sketch *lol*

Have you reused some older stuff or tecniques lately?

What a wonderful use of a toilet tissue roll--and a great take on the sketch, too!
