What Would You Do With It? Wednesday #4, Cardboard Tubes (Toilet Paper, Paper Towel, etc)

Welcome to this week's edition of What Would You Do With It? Wednesday. This week's item(s) are paper tubes. You most often find them at the end of a roll of toilet paper or paper toweling.

I'm having trouble hunting up the photos I was going to post for this, so when I find them, I will add them.

We have made:

and we have also cut the tubes and made them into flowers or snowflakes like these.
