This is pretty fun and easy to do. I love the fact that that it's made from recycled materials so you don't have to buy so many things to make this. You can make this with your kids for their desk or help them make one for teacher's Day as a gift for their teacher. Start collecting your kitchen paper towel rolls and cereal boxes now, you'll thank yourself later.

This is agreat easy and quick project to make with the kids in a classroom. I think it would be fairly easy to assemble the base suppliess, the empty toilet paper rolls. I love how this can also encourage the kids to be responsible with their supplies and learn to clean up after themselves. It is also a good project for Earth Day. Thanks for the idea. Oh, do you have something for the longer tubes that come in those wax paper boxes or from paper towels?

I love this idea instead of having all this stuff in a junk drawer in the kitchen. I can so use that drawer for something else that would be so much more useful to me than just holding all this other stuff, and now I have the perfect solution for all this other stuff. This is just amazing, thanks for the idea and a solution to one of my problems.
