What can I do with these? They're cardboard fax paper roll cores. They're thick, so they can't be bent.
I have a saw that I can chop them up.
So far, I've used them for some little trees.Any ideas?

What is the diameter?  Is it worth cutting up and making pen pots or desk organisers? If they are thin then you could use them as spokes and weave a tray/basket with newspaper.

My hubby brings large coffee tins home now and then and I had quite a collection sitting in my stash. Last week I used them in a craft session.  I took along a whole load of wallpaper samples, bits of lace and all kinds of bling.  Everyone gave a coffee tin a basecoat of emulsion and then when they were dry they decorated them with all the things that I took along.  They had a lovely afternoon and it cleared a large space in my workshop. (it will soon fill backp).

I couldn't pick a favourite as I utterly love them all.

That is amazing.  Can I ask which bone you use as I am currently working on a couple of projects using a piece of cow shin  bone.  It is really tough to carve.

I don't know how I never saw this post earlier.  It is a great idea.  I can see a few of my stitching friends receiving one in their Christmas stocking

lol I doubt if I would actually glue things down...I tend to take things apart when they no longer suit me and make something else...I have been known to frog a scarf or shawl to make them into something else...

I really need a display case for oddities...that is what I am hoping to do! Grin

I frog scarves too.

Suddenly I feel the urge to go through my jumpers to find which ones no longer fit.

If that were mine I would treat it like a doll house and make each section a different room.  Mine would also have a tiny garden..... just saying.  xxx

Now, I do have other obscure stashes of craft supplies (no such thing as rubbish!) that I bet no one else does. Like the plastic rings from plastic bottles and jars. I scare myself sometimes with the things I can't bare to throw away.

You are very much my kind of crafter

Eggshell mosaic....... I finished the packet of breakfast cereal yesterday morning so I put the empty box near the back door to take out to the recycle bin........ it didn't get that far as I had a couple of dark eggshells drying on my windowsill which I had intended to add to my eggshell stash.... Everyone has an eggshell stash don't they???   Hmm, as usual tis just me then I guess..... Anyway, before I go off on a tangent and start telling you about the gorgeous apple,raisin and fudge scone I had yesterday I will tell you about this little bit of junk art.   I cut two rectangles from the cereal box and glued them together to make the card a little stronger.  Then I cut two butterflies from a bit more of the box.  This is a craft that really does cost nothing more than a bit of glue and a lot of patience. I will go back and fill some of the more noticeable space with more shell when I have a minute today.
