Toilet Paper Roll Gift Box

Introduction: Toilet Paper Roll Gift Box

About: I run a little company that rebuilds old homes. When we aren't up to our elbows in demolition dust, I'm obsessed with recycling, crafting and cooking.

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

Pinch your roll, as shown in the first picture. Fold the end neatly, and tape it closed. 

Step 4: Fill & Repeat

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!
