How to Make Toilet Paper Tube and Pipe Cleaner Flower Stamps 

* For this project you can make your flowers in multiple ways. You will need one toilet paper roll tube for each flower. You can also make your stamps out of pipe cleaners. Both have different looks but end up great.

* You will need to form your stamps from the toilet paper towel rolls before starting. To do this push both sides of the toilet paper roll into the middle until touching. You will need to do this multiple times to make the shape stick but do it slowly so that the whole roll doesn’t collapse on itself. Only the middle of the roll should touch or get close to touching.

*To make a pipe cleaner flower you will need to start at one side. Make a small loop and twist it to help it stay together. Continue making loops until you have five and loop the leftover end all the around the middle multiple times.

You will have less than an inch of pipe cleaner left if you do 5 petals. Add another half of a pipe cleaner to the end by twisting it to the leftover inch. This will help you have a better “handle” for stamping.
