I want to disclose I am not the original creator of this project. This is my version only. I asked on line if anyone knew of the creator and or other links on who showed us how to make this album. This is what information I received; Robyn Correa, Wanda McGlamery and Dawn Griffith, You Tube... I finally got a hold of the video I saw on line a few weeks ago given by Dawn Griffith here it is. http://dawnsstampingthoughts.typepad.com/dawns_stampin_studio/2011/09/toilet-paper-roll-album-video-.html.
This is the Album I came up with.
Marina Mist, Glossy White, Naturals White and Various patterns of blue 6 x6 pieces of Stampin Stack card stock.
Snow Swirled, Snow Buddies (Hostess 2010) and Berry Christmas (retired).
Silver Embossing Powder, VersaMark, Bordering Blue and Brocade Blue Stampin' Write Markers, Ruler, Pencil, White 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, three 1" Book Rings (found at Staples) Tacky Tape, Crop-A-Dile, Decorative Label Punch and three empty toilet paper rolls flattened in half lengthwise (Use a Bone Folder or Big Shot to flatten the TP rolls). One Stampin' Dimensional cut in half.
Cover Wrap for the toilet paper (TP) rolls you will need- 3 pieces of Marina Mist CS 4 1/4 x 6" and 6 pieces decorated Glossy White CS 2 6/16 x 3 12/16".
Pull out pages you will need- 6 pieces Natural White CS 2 7/16" x 3 12/16".
Cover sheet for pull out pages you will need- 6 pieces various patterns of blue Designer Series Paper (DSP) 2 1/4 x 3 3/4".
Two punched pieces of the Decorative Label in Marina Mist cut in half (width wise not length wise).
Score Lines for the Cover Wrap -from left to right (These measurements will vary depending on the TP Rolls you use)
1/4" , 6/16, 3", 3 2/16
(I gave myself two score lines about 2/16th" wide for each of the side folds for the flattened rolls so the card stock would not buckle or bulge).
Here are photos I hope will make the directions and measurements easier to follow. I am a visual gal and pictures tell a thousand words for me. Audio is also very helpful too (Smile).
Step One- Flatten your toilet paper rolls in half lengthwise.I have read that you can run the TP roll through the Big Shot to flatten and or do it the old fashion way like I did and use the Bone Folder to flatten the edges.
Step Two- Make the cover pieces for the TP Rolls
Step Three- Take a look at the tacky tape that I added to the TP Roll and the Marina Mist Card stock. Try to line the CS as straight as possible on the roll edge the first time as the tacky tape is unforgiving.
Step Five- Make the pull out pieces buy taping the 6 Natural White 2 7/16 x 3 12/16 pieces together to make three pull out pieces, but first tape the Decorative Label half pieces at the top right, center, and left hand sides. The following photo describes what I mean here.
Step Six- At this point you could add additional embellishments and or photo corners to the pieces. I did not know what I wanted to make at the time, either a photo album and or a memory book embellished with personal items or not so I left them undecorated.
I'm showing you an additional photo here because I made a mistake and I want you to avoid this if possible. I failed to leave room for the punched ends of the TP rolls and had to cut the above pieces about a quarter inch smaller. I remembered that I wanted these pieces to be able to be pulled out not stuck inside (Duh). See the photo below
Notice the three holes in the bottom of the cover pieces. Remember you do not want to punch holes in the pull out pieces! The measurements for the pull out pieces have been adjusted so no need to alter them. I measured the placement of where I wanted the holes with a ruler and used the Crop-A-Dile to punch the holes, Then I lined up the second piece to the first piece and used a pencil to color in where I should punch next, I did the same to the third piece.
Step Seven- Put the album together as you are almost finished. See how the pull out pieces fit inside the
Finally the back piece.

Now it is your turn to go and create something fun!
