I made 240. Still have about 400 tissue tubes to go but no dryer lint left.

what kind of wax are you using? could I use the leftover bits of candles? or do I need to use the wax - not sure the name, but used when making jelly
Who would have thought that paper, ink & rubber could create a priceless keepsake or give me treasured friends.

Work in progress - 27lbs gone.
