A charming heart robot made out of cardboard tube.
I always have paper rolls at hand. I collect them the same way I collect cardboard boxes, rocks or pine cones. You never know when inspiration strikes, right? Does my husband never miss a chance to make fun of me because of this? Well, that’s another story.
We used paper rolls to make a couple of adorable heart mouses not long ago. Just like that craft, this one is easy and young kids will have a blast working on it.
