Did you know you can bend toilet paper rolls into heart shapes and use them as stamps?! It’s a great way to recycle toilet paper rolls or paper towel rolls, and it’s such a fun painting project! You can stamp on paper to make a Valentine’s Day card, or you can stamp on fabric to make a fun t-shirt or tote bag!

It’s a great tote bag for Valentine’s Day or any time! And if you use fabric paint, the bag is totally washable in case something ever spills on it!

Here’s what you need:

  • empty toilet paper rolls
  • fabric paint
  • a blank tote bag
  • tape paper plate

Note: If you don’t want to use toilet paper rolls, you can use empty paper towel rolls or wrapping paper tubes instead!

Start by smashing a toilet paper roll flat in half. Then bend in the top half of the toilet paper roll to make a heart shape.

Wrap a piece of tape around the folded tube to help it hold its heart shape.

Squeeze out a dollop of paint onto a paper plate and dip the toilet paper tube into the paint.

Then stamp it onto your tote bag!

If you want to use multiple colors, just use the other side of your tube, or make another toilet paper roll stamp. Keep stamping until you like the way it looks, let it dry for a while, and you’re done!
