You will need the following materials:

  • Paint (2-3 colors)

  • Toilet paper rolls

  • Scissors

  • White/Black Cardstock paper


Step 1: Using scissors, place cuts along the ends of one side of the toilet roll. One inch to 1 ½ inches are a good size.

Step 3: Dip the edge of the cutup side into the paint.

Step 4: Push down the painted roll on your cardstock paper.
