I have lots of extra paper towel rolls. I've made I have this cute dragonfly that I used to make a card for my baby girl's grandma... (inside is complete with her hand and foot print 'signatures', a Disposable Flower Vase, and a DIY Wall Hanging. Waste not, want not, eh?
*Empty paper towel roll
*Needle and thread
*Piece of colored paper
*Stickers/markers to decorate with
Smash the empty roll flat and then cut into 6 thin 1/8 inch wide strips
Spray paint to your desired color and all to dry
|Step 4- Secure with stitch|
on edge of each
Take your sheet of paper and fold it in half (to make the card). Next, thread and knot your needle and thread and run it through the far end of each piece of the empty roll and knot it at the end
|Step 4- lay out flay|
|Step 4- Secure with middle|
Lay out the connected pieces on your card in two sets of three, making it look like a dragonfly. Use your needle and thread to 'sew' the dragonfly on by securing it with a single stitch in the middle and on the far end of the middle wing on each side.
Decorate as desired! You can probably make it look cuter than mine.... Either way, have fun with this idea! Make flowers, leaves, whatever! Makes a cute 3-D card.
