"With a couple of TP tubes and a few other materials you probably have on hand, you can make these darling angel ornaments for your Christmas tree. Start by painting one of the tubes white and then cut down the side to open it up. Next make vertical cuts within 3/4" of the top, at 1/2" intervals (pattern on blog). Roll this tightly and glue at the top. You've just finished the angel's "skirt." Open up your second tube and draw a pair of wings (pattern on blog). Cut, paint, and glitter. Attach to back of the skirt. Paint a wooden craft "head" white and attach to top of skirt. Add a halo and a bit of lace around her neck and you're done!"

Well, this is a unique craft, isn't it? I can't say that I have ever seen anyone use the toilet paper rolls the same way before now. I see them as a solid piece or cut down in half or by quarter-inch slices. I never seen anyone cut them down like this and use them to make a unique craft. I like it!
