Tampon Crafting!

*WARNING*
To those who are sensitive (i.e. my husband): this post contains the word "Tampon"

***

Every once in awhile, I get an email from my mom with the subject line: We should make these for everyone for Christmas!

This is usually my indication she has linked me to a website that is equal parts hilarious and horrific. Such as the site Tampon Crafts (http://www.tamponcrafts.com/) where you can make yourself a fine tampon toupee or, if you're feeling especially festive, a tampon nativity and/or menorah!

Tampon crafting - so silly.

OR IS IT?

"Mom," Annelie yelled, yesterday morning, hard at work on a Fruity Cheerios rainbow. "I'm ready to glue the clouds!"

Panic set. There I was, rummaging through the bathroom cabinets, holding an empty bag of cotton balls.

(Why do people leave empty bags of cotton balls sitting in the cabinets? WHY?)

"Moooooom!" she yelled, again. "I'm ready to glue the clouds!"

*flails*

*grabs box of tampons*

"Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom! I need my clouds!"

*rips package open*

*shreds tampon into fluffy strands*

"MOM I'M READY TO GLUE MY CLOUDS!"

"Here you go, sweetie!"

*tosses shredded tampon on table*

Thanks to my own Mom for her horrendously funny links, our preschool craft hour was saved!

xoxo,

Bwa ha ha ha! I'll have to remember that. PS - The tween is notorious for putting empty cotton-ball packages back in the cupboard. Drives me crazy!

Very clever of you and funny! I still crack up every time I see the picture of the slippers made from maxi pads. Your grandmother still can't figure out what they are - maybe we should make some for her. For Christmas.

Also, that picture is super absorbent. Also, I'm hoping that no one else made this comment as I'm super lazy and didn't read the others. Also, your friends will think me rude for not reading their comments. Also, this comment was posted under the influence of medical marijuana.

And they thought MacGuyver was clever. Let's see what you can do with duct tape. Just sayin. Who says you don't go the extra mile in the name of art?

And that rainbow is adorably cute! Who would have ever known?! ;)

lol hilarious! It is funny how certain men are totally fine with tampons and some have meltdowns at the mere mention of them.
My dad is the most logical person on this planet, but if a tampon commercial comes on tv he will change the channel and hum loudly to himself until he can forget the heinous idea with which he was just assaulted. When I was a teenager, he'd make me pay for my tampons at the grocery store separately and wait in the car until he was finished shopping because he couldn't be seen with tampons in his cart. Completely illogical. Makes me wonder if he had some disturbing experience with them as a young child lol

I love your warning. Why are husbands so phobic? (Mine is as well.)

I can't believe there is such a site, but so glad that you put it to such good use. I'd love to hear what you would have used if you were out of tampons...

HAHAHAH!!! I am going to visit that site RIGHT now. Who knew feminine hygiene products could be so creative?!
