I use them for soap moulds, before cutting into bars. I get them out of the room bins from the B&B!

I do not know where abouts you are but have you heard of "Trysordy " on the just passed the main schools in Carmathen? They are a recycling centre for arts and crafts people and have very exciting bits and bobs for crafty folk like you.
Sorry do not eat pringles very often.

Thanks Ginko,

Scrapstores used to be great, but I haven't found anything like that round here yet.

Do you know the address/ opening hours or anything please?

Try setting light to one, they burn longer than a candle! Good party trick, put me off Pringles for life though!

Hmm, I have a meeting coming up in Carmarthen sometime soonish I think... Do you think they could make use of the inner tough plastic tubes from silage wrap? I keep thinking there should be something useful I could use them for but haven't thought of it yet.
