It’s that time of the year when school is winding down and summer is winding up!
Time to think about outdoor plans, summer parties and celebrating this great country in which we live.
Designer Audrey Pettit created today’s projects and we would be wrong if we did not point out one of our favorites about her project. Not only is it patriotic and a perfect way to decorate using Epiphany Crafts…it follows one of our favorites….recycle, reuse, repurpose!
We love this and the fact that it’s kid friendly too! Have them make flowers in bright colors and more…endless possibilities!

Recycled TP Tubes
1. Using a ruler, mark 1/2″ increments along the length of some tp tubes. You will need 4 tubes to create 3 ornaments. Cut tubes into 1/2″ rings.
2. Paint tube rings white and allow to dry thoroughly. While tubes are drying, punch circles from chipboard. You will need one circle for each ornament. Then cut 1/2″ x 6″ strips of patterned paper. Fold each strip in half and adhere to create 1/2″ x 3″ strips.
3. Working in a small section at a time, apply hot glue to a chipboard circle. Press flattened tp tube rings into the hot glue, alternating with folded strips of the patterned paper. Continue working until you have covered the entire circle.
4. Create star bubble cap embellishments using the Epiphany Crafts Star 25 Shape Studio Tool and blue star patterned paper.
5. Cut 1.25″ x 12″ strips of patterned paper. Using a scoring board, score at .25″ intervals. Accordion-fold strips, attach the ends together into a ring, push flat, and adhere onto a punched circle to create a rosette. Punch a scalloped circle from a contrasting paper and adhere on top of the rosette. Punch a 1″ circle from patterned paper and adhere to the rosette with foam adhesive. Add Epiphany Crafts stars to the center. Attach trim around the edge of the rosette using hot glue. Add glitter to the rosette using hot glue.
6. Cut banner strips from kraft cardstock and stamp sentiments in navy ink using small alphabet stamps. Tuck memo pins into the foam adhesive behind the 1″ circles and clip banners into the pins.
7. Hang from string, or attach to a wooden chopstick or skewer using hot glue.
