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.

Stringing Beads

Wonderful idea! Adrienne, I am not sure if this would work with elastic but I use a bit of PVA glue on the end of crochet cotton and roll it between my fingers then let it dry. It forms a slightly hardened bit at the end and is easier to thread through a hole. I know it is a bit of work to do before hand but it may just work on the hat elastic? Hope it does.....
