Toilet Roll Father's Day Cards

Toilet paper roll crafts- you either love them or hate them.  We're on the love camp over here.   Since we go through tons of rolls of toilet paper (tmi?) they're practically a natural resource.  So with Father's Day coming up, I had to incorporate them into the holiday somehow.  And that's how these toilet paper roll Father's Day greeting cards came about.

I think these guys are so neat because they're 3D cards that stand up on their own.  Plus, they incorporate Chuck's artwork and cute looks. Hubby is a sucker for both, so he's going to love these guys!

Materials to Make Toilet Roll Father's Day Cards

  •  Toilet Paper Rolls

  • Sharpie Markers
  • Scissors
  • Photocopy of the child (we only have a black and white printer, so I used that)
  • Sponge brush
  • Mod Podge

Alternatively, you could also use Mod Podge and glue your child's photo (with upstretched arms) onto the roll.  (I first painted the toilet paper roll to give it a bit more pop.)

This toilet paper greeting makes me giggle.

And since I'm a child of the 80s, I totally had to include this Say Anything reference...
