When you need a quick winter boredom buster, nothing is better than using recycled materials from around the house to whip up a cute holiday craft.
There are a few craft staples that I always have on hand, such as pipe cleaners, construction paper, googly eyes and ribbon. And, recently, I've added another item to my craft stash: empty toilet paper tubes and other paper tubes from paper towels, tin foil, etc.

Also, did you know you could give toilet paper in leiu of a Christmas Card this year? Don't ask me where, but it has been done. Just smack a ribbon or bow on your favorite roll of TP and include the following note:
“Money is scarce and times are hard. So we’re giving you this instead of a card. Something to use and something to share. . . so ‘bottoms up’ just ’cause we care.”
I can just imagine the look on my brother in laws face if I were to show up on Christmas Eve and hand this over to him. I might do it just for a good laugh! What do you think?
