Upcycling With Toilet Paper Tubes

Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials
or useless products into new materials. 
  My waste material is toilet paper tubes. My new product is a sewing kit. The three tubes are flattened and covered with B&T Duos from the Stella Paper Pack. Three tag cards contain the parts of the sewing kit and inserted into the tubes. The tubes are held together with notebook rings.
