Uses for empty rolls
INSTEAD of throwing away that cardboard centre from your toilet or kitchen roll, put them to use.
Stack toilet roll centres in a shoebox. Now roll all your camera, phone and accessory cables into tidy bundles and store each inside a roll.
Collect six or more empty toilet rolls. Have the kids paint or cover them with coloured paper. Dab a little glue on the side of each roll and stick them together. You can make a long, single- storey car park, or a fancy double- storey car park.
When you only use part of a roll of gift paper, storing the rest of it so it doesn’t crinkle isn’t easy ... unless you have a cardboard roll handy. Simply slice open on one side, roll up your gift paper and slip the cardboard tube around it.
Collect odds and ends of gift paper or fabric scraps. Take a piece of plain paper and glue shut one end of the cardboard tube. Now cover the rest of the tube with coloured paper and glue into place. To make sure you can’t see the inside of the plain cardboard, make sure that the paper ends are tucked one inch inside each tube. Stand each one separately or tie in groups of three or four with ribbon. Fill with pens and pencils.
