I started my veggie garden in 1/2 toilet paper tubes last year. I found that if I take a 1/2 toilet paper tube, put damp soil in it (as is) then the soil clings to the tube once it's dry. So it was simple: cut in half, put damp soil in, wait to dry, plant seed. I had an impressive germination rate, too; very nice.
When I planted them later, I planted them in the tube itself. The roots had easy access to the ground through the open bottom of the tube.
I also used leftover shipping boxes, cut down, to make "flats" for my starter seedlings.
