Works for Me Wed (Mini May Day baskets)

I have been trying to come up with creative ideas for toilet paper tubes. We seem to have a nice collection seeing as how we go through toilet paper like CRAZY!
I have decided to make MINI MAY DAY BASKETS with a few of them.
You will need :
Toilet paper tubes/rolls
ribbon (1 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch)
Cut the toilet paper tube in half
Glue the 1 1/2 inch ribbon on this half
Now take the other half and cut a narrow piece off of the top. (This will be your handle)
Wrap with your 3/8 inch ribbon and allow to dry.
Now just assemble your basket with a little more glue. Allow to dry and then you will be able to stuff it with "Mini" items for the kiddos!

*If you do not have access to empty toilet paper rolls just give my three year old a call. I am sure she can unroll your toilet paper and even place it in the toilet for you. She's such a good HELPER like that!
My oldest daughter wants to give them to a few friends so I have decided to fill them with a small piece of tulle and then add a couple of flower clippies (and maybe a little strawberry one also!)
Have fun with your MINI MAY DAY baskets and if you want some bigger basket ideas look below.
