Holiday Mini Tubes by Amy

Amy Duff spent some quality crafting time with her daughter, making some whimsical holiday tubes!

Amy says, "We used mini tubes to make a treat holder and keepsake ornament. For the reindeer treat holder, we added "We've Got Your Border" Christmas around the top an bottom of the tube. The red joy circle is from "Live Life" Christmas. Rudolph's nose is made with a red circle from the border sticker set. I made two antlers with black card stock and my daughter made his ears with kraft card stock and added two wiggle eyes. The label is from the Christmas "Labels by the Dozen". I tied a twine bow to embellish and filled it with chocolate candies."

"Next is the keepsake ornament containing my daughter's Christmas list. I saw this idea on Pinterest and did a spin on it to use a tube. Wouldn't this be fun to create each year and then use to decorate the tree? The original idea was a glass ornament which makes it difficult to roll up and impossible to get out with the narrow tops. SRM tubes solved the problem and make the list easy to pull out and review."

What fun tubes to create - for any age!
