      There are plenty of tutorials of different designs on YouTube. Basically, press down the top 1/4-1/3 of the roll like a pillowbox; then decorate by permanent marker or paint pens. If you want to paint the rolls, you should do that first and use acrylic paint. I've done this twice, and I highly recommend using paint over other techniques since it will make your project look less "recycled" or "nebby."

    I made these for my daughter a couple years ago. She had SO much fun with them! I swear they were her favorite toy for a while. If you haven't tried these yet, and you love doing crafts with little kids, please try it. :)
