when the weather sucks...
It was a horrible day today. Awful weather. I actually had to put my winter coat on. I didn't mind putting my very stylish winter hat on, but the coat felt like giving in! It's nearly May, for crying out loud. The rain is one thing, but the cold?
The awful weather put my plans on hold so I stayed in and made my own cotton reels. Like you do. The seam on the one on the right might give you a clue to how I did it. Basically, I die cut circles for the top and bottom, gluing 2 together to give them some bulk. Then I just rolled paper to make the middle bit and glued everything together. I wish I'd had my Crop-a-Dile to punch holes in the ends, for total veracity, but I rather like them. No idea what I'm going to do with them, but I'm sure I'll think of something.
