Well when you see the title of toilet paper roll, you have just gotta look, lol. I don't think this is something I would do since I'm not into making mini type books. I just think the idea is cute. I don't think paper towel rolls would have caught my eye like the tp did, but you could cut to your own length with those and have more room.:D

Okay Karen, what are "sour cream" treat containers.

I made one of these for Sam for her Secret Santa Gift. They are really cute. I am making one for my hairdresser to show her daughter. She works in a pre-school and the would be cute for teaching numbers or colors, or anything else that you catergorize.

a couple of years ago I made the sour cream containers out of valentines PP and my kids gave them out to their classmates for Valentines Day. They're really easy and quick to make.

OK...I will try to explain these...very simple...

Cover your tube with what ever paper and get candy or small favors to stuff inside...When you are ready to close them...One end is flattened horizontal and the other end is flattened vertical...You can use red line tape or a stapler or fastenator...you can glue them and then crimp them...

This is the one I made for Sam at Christmas. I used eyelets and binder rings. Wait on second thought I used those spring close keyrings that I picked up at HomeDepot.
