On a Roll- A Toilet Paper Roll

Club Creative Studio does not have to look too far to find creativity.  Because creative and innovative ideas are all around us, all we have to do is open our eyes and mind to locate it.  Spotting creativity in unusual places can be especially rewarding because it is in those times that you are left with a lasting impression of what we can appreciate in art form.

Hope it does not rain on this bride's wedding day!

Let’s take what may be the most uncommon place in a home to find creativity the bathroom. Yes, I said…the BATHROOM!  I happily found information to share today that sets me on a roll of blogging about something creative and interesting.  Look no further than a toilet paper roll. And admit to liking this type art. It even has a name… toilegami.

You may be familiar with the triangle fold. Often hotels have this fold displayed in their rooms.  In Japan we would see this simple triangle fold often and the last one to be in such an area would be expected to fold the triangle for the next person visiting.  Intricate designs would go a long way impressing house guests. Look at these fine folds.

Try folding the ends and adding a little added detail to the bathroom decor.

    If I had toilet paper holders in stock I would definitely consider it! I’m adding a “links” page to my site in the very near future. I would be happy to add yours if that works for you 🙂

    It would be nice if we could just buy it this way already. But then again…where is the creativity in that?

    Thanks for discovering this post Ted, might it help sales in any way to display a “cool” roll or two on one of your fixtures? You should try it= conversation starter maybe?

    So much fun to see…AND I cannot imagine having time to create these…no fancy folds in my future bathrooms…that’s for sure.

    I don’t posses this kind of creativity…But one’s loss is another’s gain. Very cool 🙂

    OH wow! I’d be amazed if I saw this anywhere. Isn’t it lovely how even mundane things can be made beautiful. Warms the heart and puts smiles on faces. Thanks Veronica!

    Thank you for stopping by the blog and also reblogging it! I appreciate spresding the word about creativity. I always have the hope that a blog inspires someone to be creative in some way because of what they see or what they might want to try or share. The simple triangle fold is easy to do, I don’t see it in public restrooms but, wouldn’t it be nice to see?

    Great minds are thinking alike, uh? I have heard of people playing games with toilet paper at bridal showers, and not too long ago on the show: Tia and Tamara, they had a fashion show in toilet paper dresses. It was a creative display of models for sure.

    Only a few days ago did I comment on Facebook about the state of toilet paper 😉 Also, at many bridal showers it’s customary to break into teams to see who can make the best wedding gown made only out of the great white stuff 😉 Fun post!
