Craft: Note Roller
Do your receipts automatically go to the trash bin?
According to Huffington Post, " Over 250 million gallons of oil, 10 million trees and 1 billion gallons of water are consumed each year in the creation of receipts for the United States alone, generating 1.5 billion pounds of waste."
We always need to take down notes - when we are on the phone, when doing the grocery list etc.
Before we start using receipts as basketballs and our trash cans as nets, let's take a look at this useful project!
What you need:
toilet paper cardboard tube
wrapping paper or washi tape
box (about 1 inch bigger than the cardboard tube on top and bottom and close together to the tube at the sides)
Hailey, our glamorous kitty wanted to learn how to make it too!
HOW TO MAKE IT:
1. Cut the cardboard tube to the size of the receipt.
2. Tape the receipts together to make a long long piece.
3. Roll the receipts on the cardboard tube tightly. Set aside.
4. Wrap the box in wrapping paper or washi tape.
5. Bore a hole big enough for a pencil.
6. Put it all together! Last step is to put a clothespin on the pencil point to prevent anyone hurting themselves with the point. You can also try using it as a lever to help unravel the receipts from the box.
It's certainly a nifty little thing to keep around the house!
