    Love your Ideas. This Christmas I took the Bathroom tissue brown inner rolls I had saved and crush several into the center of one to make a bonfire/campfire starter. I wrapped the tubes in recycled gift wrapping paper and tied off the ends with recycled ribbons to make what comes to look like a English style holiday wrapped candy or Christmas “cracker” or “popper”. My camping friends really liked them and they worked in indoor fireplaces also. Cheers!

  7. Great ideas! The monsters are adorable and the lamp is really stylish!

    I have been recycling toilet paper and paper towel tubes for a decade. They are the same material as cereal bozes, very organic.
