More Great Crafts Using Cardboard Tubes
|Share the love...||
|A few weeks ago I published an article about some of the great cardboard tube crafts featured on Craftster, and promised there were more to come. I was so surprised at how many great ideas I found; I had to showcase them in two separate articles. As promised, here are more things you can do with toilet paper and paper towel rolls.
|I can’t get over how adorable these miniature mugs of hot chocolate are. They would make the cutest ornaments! teag designed these and was kind enough to share her tutorial.|
|Here’s another great idea from teag: handy organizers. These are perfect for storing jewelry or displaying small collections.|
|Don’t forget kids’ crafts! With just a few simple supplies (colored pencils, scissors, and glue), kids can make all sorts of animals out of the tubes, like these cute little owls made by Vampberry’s niece.|
|Cardboard tubes also make great tools. LimeRiot used the end of one as a circle stamp. That linen looks great with that orange pattern. Make sure you click on the link to see the beautiful bag she made out of this custom fabric.|
I’ve seen that some toilet paper companies have started making rolls without cardboard tubes. Oh no! Better get ’em while you can!
