Asian Recycle Album

This is a Split Coast stampers challenge using the tubes from toilet paper to create an album - the tutorial is also on Split Coast. I've used 5 tubes for this project. I chose BIA O-rings instead of loose leaf rings. Throughout this project, gold embossing powder was used. Below is inside of page 1-2.

These are the tags inside the "tubes" for photos or journaling,

Top view of album:

Note: do not attempt to use a punch through the tubes for the tags - it is waaaay too thick! I used Sticky tape on this project since regular adhesive was not doing the trick. It will be helpful to flatten tubes for at least a day.
  • Stamps: Embrace Life, Eastern Blooms Celebrate Everything
  • CS: Real Red, Black, Natural Ivory
  • Ink: Versamark, Black
  • Accys: Tag Corner Punch, Round Tab Punch, Gold Embossing Powder, 1" Black BIA O-wires (non SU), 1/4" Real Red and Black Grossgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals, Sticky Tape, Stampin' Write Black Pen.

Try this project - it was fun!

LOVE this mini album with the colors and gold embossing. The recycle of tissue rolls is very cool! I've gotta make this too.
