at our facility we used paper sort of in between card and paper, measure out a template, this has been a great success. Good luck

Hi Kerryn. Basically toilet rolls are used because they are a hollow tube already eliminating that step in the cracker making process. You can easily make your own tubes by using card stock wrapped around a tube shape and taped closed, then removing the tube shape leaving you with a hollow tube of card stock.I make miniature crackers using a small glue stick as a template for my card stock tubes then tissue paper and ribbon to complete the crackers and embellish them with Christmas motifs. Hope this helps.

Hi Kerryn. The other things you can use are gladwrap and alfoil rolls. Just cut to the size you want. Cheers Karen O'Donohue

Not allowed to use toilet rolls as😉not safe. Comes under work health and safety rules.
