Lace Spools using 'Glitz' by Jeanette

 I recently made these lovely lace spools to send as a gift for a friend, the one with black lace is a 'display' spool but the other two are for storing lace, some laces just need a lovely way to display them and these are an easy and fun way with a personal touch.

It's great finding nice packaging and display ideas and these lace spools are so very easy to make. You will need a TP (toilet paper) roll and two circles of cardboard (may be packaging materials) cut about 2 inches larger than the diameter of the roll itself. You can use the full length of the TP roll or cut it down a little (tube rolls will also work, just cut to length). Cover the TP roll with your fav paperline, I used the gorgeous 'Glitz - Hello Friend' papers, then cover the top and bottom sections, allow to dry and adhere to the TP roll and decorate as desired.  I used packaging cardboard for mine and rolled different parts back carefully to create interest. The beautiful flowers are the 'Azaleas, Curly Roses and Cherry Blossoms' which I purchased from 'Flog it Friday' on Mad About Scrappin's Facebook page, together with a 'Cosmos Daisy' from the store and lovely green velvet 'Leaves' also from 'Flog it Friday'. Add a little ribbon, some pearls and small doilies and then fill with your fav lace and you have a beautiful display or gift for someone special.

I hope you like these spools and thanks for stopping by
