Just had to show you this. It's taken me a couple of days to do but all I have to do now is to fill the jars with sweets. I stuck whatever I could find onto the lids, beads, buttons, a heart, a bird etc and then sprayed them gold. The carousel is made from thick card which had a corrugated centre so I was able to make wells to place the jars in but still leaving a base. The stanchions were chopsticks, so we can't have Chinese again now, also sprayed gold. I did all the spraying when it was complete apart from the roof. I place a further circle of card over the chopsticks and the tube from a paper towel. Kebab sticks were placed at an angle to shape the roof. I then measured a cut eight triangles and stuck the sides together to form the roof. The top was a empty ribbon reel sprayed gold. Just added some bunting for fun. This will be the centre piece for our golden wedding party. I am quite pleased with it.

Travel journal

So thanks for visiting to see what you need a toilet roll 

It's to make your own stamps

Resulting in your pages for your journal

I think it's pretty cool and will show you the finished article on Wednesday. It won't be completed until October though when we are off cruising again, but maybe some of you can fill it in already. Hope you like it and don't forget your empty toilet roll. Lol....
