Tutorial - Toilet Paper Roll Gift Box

Hold on a sec! This empty toilet paper roll that you just threw away? Take it out!
I love recycling and empty toilet paper rolls are a great source for me. You won't believe some of the amazing stuff that you can make from empty toilet paper rolls. Just search it on Pinterest and you'll be amazed, guaranteed!



So today I'm going to show you how to make an adorable gift box from empty toilet paper rolls.


You'll need - 
empty toilet paper rools (Duh!)
decorative paper (I used old newspapers, magazines and books)
gluestick
ribbon
scissors

Use the gluestick to glue the paper around the toilet paper roll.


Leave 0.5" (1.3 cm) of paper on each end.


Add some glue on the inside edge as well and fold the paper inside.


Now comes the tricky part -  press the toilet paper roll in the middle of one end to create a curved crease.

Repeat through all.



Insert your gift, then wrap with ribbon.

This is addictive, folks, I'm warning you. Once you make one, you feel the need to make hundreds more.



So enjoy and don't forget to show me your boxes on The Crafeteria FB page or tag me on Instagram (@thecrafeteria)!

  1. I love this! And you could make a couple of covered rolls before the holiday season arrives and be ready to go with a quick package. I'm definitely going to try this.
