Reclamation: Paper Towel Tube

Although, paper towel tubes are quickly becoming harder and harder to find in our house, I do manage to snatch the ones we use and turn them into something usable. My new favorite way to use these is to convert into knife sheaths. We have a few knives floating around in our drawers they were just waiting to do some damage to unsuspecting fingers. To remedy the problem I just flattened the tube, cut to size, and taped an end shut. Now we can rest assured that no fingers will be lost.

Glad you are enjoying. And, thanks for the compliment on the purse. I had so much fun making it I think there might be more in my future.
