On a roll....

Did these at High Halden Craft Club.

Take some wrapping paper and a cocktail stick!

Cut some snippets of paper, and use the stick to roll up tightly.
Slip them off the stick and cut into sections....

A piece of paper for the background,
stick the rolls on and add a star...

Here's another with plain background,
and a 'present' sticker for the 'pot'

Bit wonkier this one eh?

Good fun had by all!

This is a great way of using all those small bits of wrapping paper
left over, that are not quite big enough for that last little
present, so you have to cut into a new one,
I know you've been there and done THAT!!!

25th of the month and you know what that means.....
It's a new week in the Snippets Playground
and there was lots of snippetty snippets used here!
See you there....



  1. Pretty cool! I don't think I'd have the patience for it though! LOVE what you've created here. Very ingenious.

    Happy Rudolph Day.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  2. Very clever use of left over wrapping paper, Lesley, the trees give a lovely texture to the card, very tactile.

    Lots of love and hugs

  3. Wow! Great idea and well done with the snippets.

    Thanks for taking part in the October Rudolph Days Challenge.

  4. A fantastic card Lesley. A great technique. Barbxx

  14. Another most unusual & beautiful Christmas tree. Love this idea, and the colors you selected to create the rolls were so pretty. I must try this...what a way to use up snippets. Bet it would work well for colorful magazine pages too! Brilliant idea. TFS & Hugs

  15. These are fun! I remember my mom making something like this when I was a wee kid.
