Cut them into 1-inch pieces and cover with yarn, they make really cute and expensive looking napkin holders.
I found this site right now when I searched for an example:

If you have access to the autumn issue of Green Craft, you will find a cool idea on page 78.

If not, here is a quick run down of what to do.
Staple the tops closed, paint any color you like, add some pretty paper or ribbon to the top to cover the staples. Then you can add paper flowers, or any other small cool papery crafts to the roll, throw on a name and you have a place setting, or you can use it to label items on a shelf or what not.

We save them for fire starters, stuff them with dryer lint and fold in the edges and they work great to get our fires going all winter long. If you don't have a fireplace they are well received by those who do. Not the craftiest idea, but they can't all be gems right. =)
