  12. This is PRECIOUS! I wish I would have come to this blog 2 weeks ago so I could scraplift, lol. I did a similar advent project but made them into "sour cream containers" and punched one hole at the top to hang on a garland. Cute, but it was a mess, and nothing faced the same way. This is so neat and organized and gahhh, just beautiful! Great job, I'll have to keep this in mind for next time. Just wonderful!

  34. By far the best I've seen yet. I have been saving the rolls for awhile now and I have been trying to find an Advent Calendar to make for my 3 grandkids. They live in a different state than I do, so it has to be mailed, this would be great. I will be making this later, not sure if I can get them done by Dec. 1, but I am going to try. Thank you for being such an inspiration. I love your blog.

  162. Mary,
    You are the 1st on this hop b/c I subscribe and follow your blog. Thanks for showing a project that I feel that I CAN do with my kiddos and I happen to have all the supplies on hand and I LOVE the idea of having the kiddos color their own squares. I have 3 girls, so they can each color 8 squares and the last one we will do as a family...I JUST love the idea!!! Thanks again for showing a great project.
    Blessings,

  171. Well Mary, because of you I have been saving the best rolls! And it has been easy, with a toilet paper loving 3 year old in the house! I should buy stock in it....I digress...This is the best idea I've seen which would fit with my lifestyle. Thank you so much, as I can actually see myself making this and using it over and over!

  172. Mary you never cease to amaze me at how many projects you can come up with using paper rolls. I just think this one was so clever and seems easy to put together. Love it. I think wrapping the goodies in a sheet of tissue paper with the points coming out of the top of each container, would make it easier to retreive their treats, while adding decoration to the top. Just an idea. Really fun project.
