Simply Neutrals Tuesday No. 19 - tubbies

I use a lot of wide sellotape, I mean, a LOT, lol, sending Etsy items around the world. So I have been left with many empty cardboard rolls. I started making them into little tubbies for all kinds of things a while ago, and last night I made another one for a few of my little jewellery making tools. Here are the 4 which are always on my desk - 

The new one from last night -





Of course, they all have to have a bit of bling on them :-).

Liz, they are so wonderful all, love the soft tones, the beautiful papers, and the sweet bling ,ofcourse.
A great idea to use those cardboard rolls, how do you make the bottom ? I should have saved mine from the many years with the shop ,lol.
Have a lovely evening dear Liz.

What a good idea!
Like Dorthe, I wonder how you make the base? Just a circle of card?

What a fabulous upcycle idea, Lizzie! The containers are beautiful and so practical as well.
Have a great weekend! :)

How clever of you to recycle and upcycle your empty cello rolls. You have decorated them beautifully and yes, bling is happy making. Simply Neutrals Bliss...
