The first thing that comes to mind when I think of toilet paper rolls is a project called, Party Poppers! I paint the toilet paper rolls, but that is optional. Next you fill the roll with confetti, small candies, and little prizes like toy rings. Wrap the roll with tissue or decorative gift wrap paper. You want at least 1 ½”-2” lapping over each end of the wrapped tube. Tie off with ribbon. To “pop” your party popper, you hold each end and pull! The surprises come tumbling out. I make these for parties and other fun gatherings.
