How to Make a Craft Tube Holder VIDEO

In this video you’ll learn to make a craft tube holder using just paper, a trimmer and a score blade.  You’ll also learn some tricks about using the Cricut Expression 2 and create a cute squirrel for this project.  GUESS WHAT?!  You’ll even see a sneak peak of my newest stamp release…IT’S ALL FALL PUNS!!  I hope you enjoy it!

(Scroll down to find more information about things I mentioned in the video.)

In this video I talked about these things:

My newest set of stamps!!  IT’S All Fall Puns!  You can also find the tubes I’m using under the “craft containers” tab on my Products Page.

  3. love this squirrelly video! I usually don’t like giving cash because I feel like its impersonal, but not anymore with this great idea! Totally personalizable! (is that a word)?

    This is a great way to package up some cash and make it a more personal gift! Love it! Also, I agree with you on the “Campin’ Critters” cartridge–their eyes ARE FREAKY!! But I bought it anyway on clearance at Hobby Lobby, and FINALLY got my Gypsy out and figured out how to hide cuts so I could stamp a face on them (with Peachy Keen stamps, lol)! Glad to hear about the new stamps! I LOVE fall projects!
