Picture of How to Wrap a Small, Irregular Shaped Objects

I have been done with wrapping gifts for several weeks now, and I always come up with a little something extra a day or two before Christmas.  This time I decided to add a small stocking stuffer type gift for my children and their spouses.  My Hubby and I decided to introduce our son and sons-in-law to Sugru.  So I needed to wrap 4 small packages of Sugru and copies of the instruction booklet (small irregular shaped objects) that came with it.  I settled on using empty toilet paper rolls (you know the ones that are in the center of the roll of TP).
So here we go.

Step 1:
