Wreaths and ornaments @ Digi Haven

Hi all!

When I saw we had an wreaths and ornaments challenge at Digi Haven, I knew I wouldn't be making a card! But how I made this one up, guess you must have thought I am on drugs or so!! I made my own wreath out of..........................................
TOILETPAPER ROLLS!
Let me explain how I got into it, quite a funny story! I was cleaning up my craft room, so I could make a new mess again. In my craft room I have a paperbin. It was quite full and when I picked it up to bring it away, a lot of toiletpaper rolls fell out. I thought, well there must be something I could do with them, rather then make binoculars of it like I did as a kid!
And there was the idea, I can make my own wreath! Insane!!!!! Until I wanted to make a tutorial of it! I already made my wreath for the challenge, so I had to make a new one. And then... I ran out of toilet paper rolls.. So I went on the internet to look around, and look what I found! Someone who made a tutorial of it! I always thought I was the only insane one!!
Anyway, you can find this tutorial here.
Since this is for a Digi Haven Challenge, I must use a free digi, so I used one of Anji's Antics, which can be found here.
I printed it out, and mirrored it, here is the other one!
The digi's are colored with my Copic Markers, and I used the following:
G43, G46, R27, R29, W00, W0

To finish it, I made a bow from red ribbon, and from the leftover piece I made a string to hang it on!

That was it for today, I hope you all like it! Hop over to Digi Haven to join us with your wreaths and ornaments. It doesn't matter if they are on a card, or whatsoever, just join us!
To be elegible for our fantastic prize, iffered by our own Mynette, you will have to use a digi that is free for at least the during of our challenge!!

I will be back later today for the Christmas Tree Blog Hop!!

Hugs, Sandra
