    Well, now you’ve got me all curious. I have no idea where to find more tubes like that.

    i called these guys this morning and i think they have what you are looking for: http://www.signsnow.com/lincoln. they material comes on cardboard tubes and are normally just recycled. you could acquire them and cut to length.

    How many thousands of toilet paper tubes do you think Seward generates each month? It would be interesting to gather them all in one place.

      I don’t consider myself to be a germ-o-phobe. However, in this case, I don’t think I want toilet paper tubes from other people’s bathrooms. Maybe, though, it’s not really that big of a deal. Hmmmm.

        I’m with you Kristi—read a report once on the ‘germs’ that were left on tp tubes and I’m now a paper towel tube kind of person when it comes to crafts!! 🙂

    You guys are amazing with the ideas! The first photo has tubes that protect the ‘necks’ of the foam-soap bottles we use. Whenever I opened those boxes (12 to a box), I would give them to the school-age children to use for whatever. Now I’m kicking myself. I should have hoarded them.

    Thanks again! 🙂
