Toilet Paper Roll

cute idea i found in a magazine. great if you have little girls with lots of little hair ties or your own hair ties. place them on the toilet paper roll. great way to keep them organized in one spot and its thrifty. we do this as well as hang our bows on ribbon we had laying around.
