Before we start I just want to say that I have read some people's comments on crafts made from toilet roll tubes. Fears about it being unhygienic in some way. I don't really get this because I'm not sure what people are doing with their toilet roll tubes that make them germ ridden. However if this is a concern for you just use kitchen roll tube - problem solved!
First squish your tube flat.
Mark a half circle at the ends. You will need to find something to draw round (I used a little ramekin dish) Then "draw" round it using a ball ended scoring tool (is that what it's called?) The photos will explain!
If you don't have one of theses fancy tools just use a skewer, edge of the scissors, pencil where the lead is broken, a pop up biro that's not popped up - something like that. Anything that will make a ridge in the card but not a mark.
Fold these ends in by gently pushing them, use your fingers to pinch the edge to neaten.
It should look something like this - all ready for decorating.
You can decorate them however you like.
I wrapped a couple of paper strips round.
And then tied a little gift tag from my "old bits from Cards" stash to finish off.
Perfect for little gifts, jewellery, sweets, cufflinks etc.
