Sometimes I get the urge to craft.
Just me and my glue gun and some ribbon and some leftover toilet
I don’t have an issue crafting with toilet paper rolls.
I think in the crafting world, they have a legitimate place.
Do you think that when toilet paper makers sat down at the design
board, figuring out how large the inside of the roll would be, they took
into consideration that once they were cut in half, they would make a
great base for a napkin ring?
I mean – sure they talked about absorbency and softness and pretty
little quilted designs.
Did the toilet paper Powers-That-Be (TPPTB) realize what a gold mine
they had when they made the cardboard rolls the perfect size?
I’m pretty sure there were some men in fancy-schmancy business
suits that sat around a board room with some Pottery Barn napkins
they found on a clearance table after last years holiday.
They experimented with all shapes and sizes of templates, until they
got the perfect size roll.
I can even hear one of them – with an almost sardonic laugh…
“Those Bounty people have nothing on us. We will RULE the napkin
Then, it was only a matter of packaging the TP rolls so there were an
even number of napkin rings.
(The mega pack of TP sold at Sam’s Club is intended for larger dinner parties.)
The secretary got a raise when she suggested you pair the napkin rings
with the clearance Pottery Barn napkins with a cute little pumpkin basket
Charmin approved. Mom approved.
Those smart TPPTB guys.
