transformer tuesday #3

Foraging around our big recycle box for this weeks Transformer Tuesday we discovered an adundance of cardboard tubes, so on cloud cuckoo's 'Transformer Tuesday' this week we have "once six tubes, now...a skittle family"
The theme for our skittles came from mini1 wanting to do a 3d version of Grandpa! well you can see; here he is  along with a few other family folk too and our collection of recycled goodies...

We used...
- 6 cardboard tubes (toilet rolls) or 3 bigger ones cut in half
- fabric, we used left over snips from other projects
- masking tape cut out for faces, paper can be used as a substitute and glued down
- pens for decoration
- gluppy glue
- newspaper rolled into a tight ball and covered with some more fabric

Once you have your recycled bits and bobs you can decorate your tube skittles into an assortment of creations. We went for 'family members' but we have also done animals, houses, birds and there is lots more. 
If you'd like to have a transformer tuesday be great to hear from you, enjoy transforming and recycling

  1. Hi - we love the paper tube family. I know this might sound like a silly question, but what is the fabric-covered newspaper ball for?
