Well ladies, how about using wrapping paper tubes instead? You get more little tubes out of them anyway and the paper NEVER stays on them so they slide right out!

I am soooo stealing this idea for my residents at the retirement home I do crafts with. I think we will paint them in red, white, and green stripes for candy canes for Christmas morning!

Then, after Christmas I will save all the tubes and have them ready for Easter and Hallowe'en next year!

Great idea!!! Thanks for sharing it!

yes you could use wrapping paper tubes as well, pretty much any tube shaped cardboard thing! haha. i just used toilet paper/paper towel rolls because thats what i had. also the reason i didn't mention that as an option is because all the wrapping paper tubes i have encountered are very thick, and wouldn't fold very well

Very adorable!  I'll have to remember that for next Halloween!  I can totally see giving those out for trick or treaters (we don't get a ton of them so it works!)

OMG! Yes!!! As if my husband doesn't think I'm crazy enough, he'll think I've gone stark raving mad for hoarding toilet paper & paper towel tubes!!!

You know, you could even punch a couple holes in the top and make them into an Advent or other countdown calendar - hide a few treats inside or an activity for the family. Or ornaments on a kid's tree...or anonymously hang them on your co-workers desks.
