Sometimes I get the urge to craft.
Just me and my glue gun and some ribbon
and some leftover toilet paper rolls.
I don't have an issue crafting with paper towel 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 crafting world!"
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 placecard.
Charmin approved. Mom approved.
Those smart TPPTB guys.
