Snowman Toilet paper Christmas “Card”~ Thrifty Neighbor Gift

Looking for something thrifty, different, and fun to give your neighbors this year?  Or something to leave the mailman, paper boy and garbage man?  With how thrifty this craft is, you could make one for everyone that has ever done anything for you for next to nothing! Not to mention giving them a little chuckle at the same time!  Sounds pretty good, right?

Introducing the first ever “toilet paper Christmas card”.  You read that right.  Attached is a little note that says;

” Money is tight

And times are hard,

So we are giving you this

Instead of a card.

Hang over or under

Whichever is pleasin’

And remember we wish you

A great Holiday Season!”

Silly right?  You don’t normally encourage people to wipe with your Christmas card, but why not ;)?

You will need:

snowman toilet paper Christmas card, #neighborgift, #neighbor, #thriftygift, #thriftycraft, #thrifty, #snowman, #gaggift, #funnygift, #toiletpaper

Roll of toilet paper

Gallon size Ziploc bag

 ribbon (Curling ribbon or fabric ribbon either is fine)

glue stick

orange paper

googly eyes

black paper

hole punch

Poem attached to some cute Christmas paper

I created a printable of the poem. If you would like to size it to a 4 x 6 size, or whatever size you want you can open it in a free program like Picasa.  That will then give you the choice as to which size to print it.  I have used Picasa for years, and it is very easy to learn and use.

Begin by sticking your toilet paper inside the Ziploc bag.  I then trimmed the zip top off of mine.  I like the look of having it tied with a ribbon.

Glue on your googly eyes.  Cut out an orange “carrot” whatever size you want.  Cut 4 round stones for the mouth.  Attach all of those with glue.  Print off your poem and glue it to some cute Christmas paper.  Punch a hole so you can stick the ribbon through it.  Tie that to the top so that it is sealed tightly.

There you have it!  Almost as easy as filling out a card, right?  I guarantee this one won’t be thrown away or forgotten anytime soon!
