Recently I received free Cottonelle toilet paper and flushable wipes from Crowdtap as a sample and share!!! FUN!
I decided to make little gift baskets to give to my friends and thought it would be cute to decorate with the standard blue restroom sign… well, I was assuming I would be receiving coupons or giftcards to go purchase the Cottonelle items and had my heart set on cute little gift bags. Imagine my surprise when I had a ten pound box of toilet paper arrive at my door!!!
I thought I would still take some pictures of the box I made, even though I didn’t end up using it.
I printed the blue restroom graphic on regular white paper, cut it out and rounded the corners. I just double sided taped it to the small blue take-out box I picked up from the dollar tree (they are three for a dollar – win!) An empty toilet paper roll stood in place of a traditional name tag (I find this hilarious).
I made a small card with the same graphic and wrote a funny note on the inside (or at least I think it is funny). –Maybe none of this is funny to anyone else, but I was totally jazzed about not having to buy toilet paper for a while!
I also found $2 coupons in the paper, so I included those for my friends as well… I figure, if they like the product, why not save some money???
I ended up just tying ribbon around the package of toilet paper, and sticking a bow on top of the wipes – not as cute, but I made it work.
*side note: I am totally including these wipes in the supplies to send to the US troops in the Middle East! I can’t imagine how hot, dirty and uncomfortable they are in so many pounds of gear. I’m sure a clean tush would be absolutely wonderful and is probably something they don’t often have.
