The tubes that come with the spools set weren't long enough for my purposes, so I simply glued three together, reinforced the seams with tape (appropriate, huh?), then covered them totally with tape....this time tissue tape. As you probably know, tissue tape does not stick to itself (duh! if it did how would we get it off the roll?), so to make sure it stayed put, and to give the whole thing some added strength, I covered it with Glue N Seal. Wait! Before I did that, I sprayed it with some Dylusions sprays. I think it's time for some photos.
Above, the finished tape holder. Like I said, simple. To be useful, there just isn't much room for embellishments.
To finish off the top, I threaded some beads on a stick pin and just stuck it into the end cap of the tube (with a bit of glue to make sure it stays put).
The only place where I could do any stamping was on the disc on the bottom, and I used Wendy's polka dot stamp over the sprayed Art Part.
Ta da! My tape holder in action. Room for lots more, as you can see.
Now that I accidentally did something creative today, do you think I can also accidentally do some laundry? Hah! Sometimes I really crack myself up.
