Most of our past blogs talk about various ideas for ways that you can use your Tube-Wringer. Today, we created our own project for you to try at home!

Today’s craft is crimping paper for a scrapbook or a commonplace book.

This is a simple papercraft.

You will need:

  • Cardstock or other heavy paper
  • Tube-Wringer (any model)
  • Scissors
  • Glue or tape
  • Notebook or scrapbook 


  1. Cut down the cardstock to desired size.
  2. Run your cardstock through the Tube-Wringer.
  3. Trim your crimped paper to the final size or shape.*
  4. Glue or tape the crimped paper into your book.

*You can make fun shapes by first drawing the final shape onto the flat paper, then crimping and trimming.

Here is a video of our efforts:

As you can see, you can create pretty, crimped decorations for just about anything. For example, you could create a crimped decoration for cards or even make several hearts, stars, or letters and string them together for a paper birthday or holiday decoration.
