Since 1879 when the [ttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toilet_paper Scott Paper] Company sells the first toilet paper on a roll, the remainig tube have been discarted.
Now you can reuse them to make this fabolus lamp.
Step 1: Materials
32 toilet paper tubes
1 bulb and electric instalation.
Step 2: Mark
Make a ruler to mark the tubes.
20 tubes must have in 6 parts.
and 12 tubes with 5 parts.
Step 3: Cut
Cut on the lines, and open the flaps.
Step 4: Assemble
Take one tube of 5 flaps and attach with the stapler in each flap one tube with 6 flaps.
Always is going to be like this all the 5 ones conect with 6 ones, but not all the 6 ones conect with 5 ones. REMEMBER: You have to make this little triangle in between.
Step 5: The Last 5
Leave the last 5 tube and attach it with clips (pic 3). So you can replace the bulb.
You can make a figure as indicated in picture number 2, to avoid the direct contact with the bulb and the tube.
Step 6: Ready!
You can cut the other side of the tubes to make it more ornamented.
