K is for Kitchen Cord Organizer Gift Craft (toilet tube art)

Do you have the problem with appliance cords being too long and unruly on the kitchen counter?  With these cute organizers you can thread the excess cord inside for a tidy workspace. Decorate empty toilet paper tubes in a variety of ways; paint them or spread glue and cover with pieces of torn tissue paper.  When using the tissue paper, brush a thin layer of glue over the top so all the paper will stick—this is like a decoupage craft.  Stand the tube on end and let it dry thoroughly.  Your child can now add bright stickers.

When presenting this gift (maybe for Mother's Day coming soon), write this verse on paper and roll it up and insert into the cord organizer.

Here’s a cord organizer to use each day,
Slip a cord inside and neat it will stay!
