  • Tip

    We used one wide mouth tube and one small mouth tube.If your cardboard tubes are the same size, cut one open lengthwise. Then, overlap the seam and tape it back together so that it fits into the other roll.

  • Step 2

    Draw two lines about ½” (1.3 cm) apart along one end of the larger tube. Repeat on the other side of this edge. Then, cut along these lines.
