30 Great Ways to Re-Use Empty Toilet Paper Tubes

I’ve created a little recycler.  Ever since my daughter and I made our bird feeders from empty toilet paper rolls a week or so ago, she won’t throw any tubes away!  I’ve been on the hunt for some more fun uses, and I’m sharing some of my favorite finds with you in today’s round-up.  Because hey, there are certainly worse things than having an avid recycler in the house, am I right? :)

    You can make a really cute journal using TP tubes for the pages and even the covers. There are several from simple to elaborate, on YouTube. Check out some of them.
