I found this awesome idea while blog surfing. Making flowers from empty toilet paper rolls. They are so simple to make and are great for embellishing gift bags and boxes. I found the idea on paper jewels http://paperjewels.blogspot.com/2009/04/more-fun-with-toiltet-tissue-tubes.html.

I did the tp roll flower, it was so simple and only took a matter of minutes once I decided on which paper to use.
Here is the flower that I made:
