Toilet paper rolls are disposable items we all have. I was looking at one and thought that its shape could lend itself well to a flower. I like the symmetry of something with the word “toilet” in its name coming up roses (figuratively speaking).
- Toilet paper roll
- Double-sided permanent tape (or you can use a strong glue if you prefer)
- 2 colors of nail polish/paint (I used nail polish because I liked the sparkly sheen it provided)
— 1 —
Remove any extra paper from roll.
— 2 —
Cut roll lengthwise. You should have two halves of the roll.
— 3 —
Cut off four strips from one of the halved roll. (I cut mine at about ½ inch thick.)
— 4 —
Round ends of strips.
— 5 —
Cut a small circle from the excess halved roll.
— 6 —
Paint the inner part of the strips with one color of nail polish. Let it dry.
— 7 —
Paint the outer part of the strips and circle with a second color. Let it dry.
— 8 —
Create a cross with two strips and tape together.
— 9 —
Create a second cross with the other two strips and tape together.
— 10 —
Tape the two crosses together ("x" cross over the "+" cross).
— 11 —
Tape the circle to the center of the cross.
— 12 —
Tape onto a package as decoration.
