Craft Tool Holder From Recycled Jumbo Toilet Roll

Hubby brought a few jumbo sized toilet roll holders home from work for me and I recycled into this craft tools holder.

The four items in the holder are what I am always searching for on my desk.  I use them so often and consequently they are the things I lose under other crafting goodies on my desk.  Now I have this little gem in front of me I am hoping they won’t get lost again!!!


Used papers, paints, inks, molding paste, dies, stamps, edging punch and gilding wax.

This shows how large the jumbo toilet rolls are and because they are for industrial use they are so much sturdier than the normal toilet roll.

    I can see why you were so pleased with your holder Shirl, it’s brilliant, painted and decorated perfectly as usual, a fantastic addition to your craftroom. My craftroom is now crying out for one of these, or two or three.

    You have to laugh when you realise you think your husband is romantic when he brings you EMPTY loo rolls! Always a sign of a true crafter. Mine is the same, always on the look out for opportunities… I trained him well!
    It’s a great idea and that cardboard looks easier to paint than any metal can. Good choice of colours and images.
