Toilet Paper Folding Happy 4th of July!

Now for something completely DIFFERENT!!!  Now you will know how really weird I am!  I LOVE to fold my toilet paper roll after I get done cleaning the bathroom.  I just do it for me.  It's the thing I do to make me feel good after cleaning in there.  A job well done and even the toilet paper roll gets a cute and tidy look!!!  

These are easy to do too.  You've seen them folded to a point in hotels, I use to do that until I saw this one and thought how fun it would be to do. And it's not difficult at all.  And of course you are now going to want to give your bathroom that finishing touch once you are done cleaning it!  So that means I will need to tell you how to make this pretty pocket!

First you need to remove one square of toilet paper and fold it back and forth to create a fan.  Fold the fan in half and pinch the bottom where the fold is.  Set it aside.  I suppose you could color it with Stampin' Up! markers but I don't think I'd like to be the one to use that!!!  The color may transfer, if you know what I mean???

Next you will need to make sure your toilet paper rolls from the top. Take the next piece of toilet paper (don't remove it from the roll).  Then fold the end up about 1".  You don't need to be exact and the more you do this the easier it will be to guess where you want your fold.  Make sure you pinch the bottom of the fold so it's nice and tight and sharp.

Now we are going to form the pocket.  Fold the bottom right corner towards the back of the toilet paper. You will be folding it from about an inch or so in from the end.  Repeat for the other side.  Pinch the lines tightly with your fingers.  See in the photo how the pinched and folded edges for a "V" with a flat bottom?  

And the last thing you will do is open the picket just a little and slip in the fan.  Open the fan up a little so it looks like the one above.  And you're done.  Now go use your other bathroom so you don't have to disturbe the pretty toilet paper!  And yes, that is exactly what I do!!! LOL  

Have a fun and safe 4th of July!

Thanks for stopping by today,
