Got some toilet rolls set aside? Get painting!

I saw this great idea here at Mama Mia's Heart 2 Heart and basically copied it! I got a few toilet rolls grouped together with an elastic band, stapled them together (so it was more secure, 'cause they were shifting around), set my little Miss E. up with some paper and paint, and away she went.

A little tip: any time we do stamping with paint, I use a meat tray with a dampened sponge on it to hold the paint. It acts like a stamp pad, but for paint instead of ink.


And the finished product:

Such a simple idea, with such an effective result! We'll be cutting Eden's pictures into strips and using them as wrapping paper runners for Valentine's Day - which also happens to be my husband's birthday! This would be a great idea for making your own cards too. Thanks again to Mia B. at Mama Mia's Heart 2 Heart for the inspiration!
Thanks for reading! ~ L.
