Hi Everyone~

I design for Scrap for Help--I decided to create a faux kaleidoscope because our theme this month is "Fathers."

First, I made the digital piece above with graphics from Dezinaworld.

Then, I took a paper towel roll. I covered it with paper from The Graphics Fairy. Then, I took a larger tube, cut it, placed a dark image from The Graphics Fairy onto it and slid it over the top. I took the remainder of the cardboard and slid it onto the bottom.

Having run off my original design in the size of a tag, I tied it on to complete the project.

So, there you have it--my creation!

Aloha Cindy;
Love your project, it's a great idea. I always have a hard time dreaming up masculine projects, this is a good one. This month huh? If I can give WBC blog hop a rest, maybe I'll link a project. Always willing to come out of my shell for you dear.
Warm hugs to you.
