Tampon Artist Gets Bloody Creative With Holiday Decorations

PORTLAND, Ore. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A website offering tips for holiday tampon crafts will have you singing “Let it flow” this Christmas.

Tampon craft creator Brad Thompkins says he came up with in order to spoof the folks who “make crafts out of anything lying around.”

Some of Thompkins’ best holiday crafts include a poofy Playtex angel, a string of painted O.B. tampon lights, and a Tampax Menorah.

Although Thompkins admits he’s become somewhat creatively stumped with the tampon crafts, he’s still brainstorming ideas for this holiday.

Says Thompkins: “This year I’m going to try to make a whole tampon nativity scene, including a tampon baby Jesus.”

Thompkins says he enjoys crafting with tampons for their “versatility” and says a lot of his online fans are post-menopausal women.

He says, “I get emails from women going through menopause who are excited that they finally have something to do with their leftover tampons.”
