The holidays can tap you out, leaving you to have to be creative with your gift wrap!
For small gifts, (or even a kind of Redneck Advent Calendar!) this is a super cheap DIY gift box made from an empty toilet paper roll. It is also a great way to use up those scraps of wrapping paper!


Materials:
Toilet paper tubes
Gift wrap
Scissors
Invisible tape

Pencil & ruler optional but helpful!

Step 1: Measure Wrapping Paper

Measure the length of the roll,  and cut the paper  long enough to go around the tube one and a half times. Make sure the paper covers the ends on either side. 

Tape one end evenly to the roll, with invisible tape. 

Step 2: Roll Your Roll

Roll the paper around the roll, and tape the seam. Make sure everything is nice and even. 

Step 3: Pinch and Tape

Place a small gift inside. I wrapped a pair of earrings this way. If you use a paper towel tube, they make fun boxes for cookies!
