Gift Box Tubes made from Recycled items

She does tell you what they are made from...I am not sure if he price is for 1 or all 3...if you can not figure out that they are made from she does tell you in the description...it is a cute idea for a birthday party, classroom party, or a decoration...I am sure that all of you can figure out how to make these...now if we could all sell the for what she does we could all get rich...lolo

Those are so cute! My mind is swirling with ideas. I've been collecting TP rolls for a snack pack for the teachers in my daughter's school. These would be cute for Christmas, Easter, May Day, Mother's Day....so many things!

How do you think that they are sealed on the bottom? It looks like they are sewn shut. Do you think that I could do it some other way?

No, just in my head. Here's what I was going to do: fill a tp roll with 1 granola bars, a drink stick (to add to water) and a couple of hugs and kisses candies, + a couple of sticks of gum. I was going to wrap the whole thing in tissue paper and tie the ends to make it look like a piece of candy. Label it with something like: "Break in case of a hunger attack" or "Sanity Saver". Either paint the tp roll before wrapping it or use spray adhesive so that the tissue paper with stick to the tp roll. That way it doesn't look like you're giving them an empty tp roll. ROFL!!

But then I saw this and I thought that with one end being closed, the tp roll could be painted to look like a snowman's face or santa suit. If you use a thin wire for a handle, it could be decorated, too.

I'm glad that you think that it makes sense. I can picture what I'm thinking but trying to describe it in words is hard. I will post picks of them once I get them made. I'm not even close to thinking about Christmas yet. lol!
