Woohoo!  I am totally happy with how this turned out; though I have no idea where to post it; as its kind of a mish-mash of a few different categories.
So ... A few weeks ago I had what I thought would be the start of a cold. and I always run out of kleenex when I have a cold and get too lazy to go out for more when I am feeling miserable and turn to tp for my nose instead.  And I got to thinking "there must be something nicer out there to look at than a roll of tp beside my desk at work ...." and i posted a question about it somewhere on here.
ANyways, I had a flash of inspiration two days ago on how I could accomplish it.  I had all these mailing tubes with plastic ends from when I order photos.  How perfect.  I cut it down to size, re-inserted the plastic ends, covered it with some scrapbook paper (which is maybe an inch and a half too short to go all the way around, so I had to get creative with the wrapping); took the tp tube out of the middle and cut one little hole in the top tube-end.  TO me, the result is much prettier than any old cd spindle.
My picture might be a little dark; it always seems my screen is brighter than everone elses; so i'll tell you the yellow is a butter colour.
What do you think?Huh

Great!  I love what you ended up doing.  Much better than the thing I have sitting on my craft table, so I'll be borrowing your idea.

good one! i too have the habit of using the tp as a tissue replacement. and just for a bit of useless trivia, did you know that when stubbly men use toilet paper instead of tissues,bits of toilet paper get stuck on their face?...there you go!

This is really clever.  Do you think you could do the same for paper towel dispenser?  I like this.  A lot
