How to Make a Toilet Roll Gift Box - Quick and Easy DIY | Tutorial




You can craft a small gift box for jewelry, vouchers or a souvenir in just 5 minutes. This is how to make a cute toilet roll gift box.

It’s just before Christmas. The Christmas tree lights, the guests arrive in 10 minutes – and I still have to wrap the earrings for my sister. And of course I don’t have a jewelry box left to wrap them in. Forgotten in the pre-Christmas rush….

In my distress I think: a sandwich paper bag? But that doesn’t look like anything… And then I remember how my resourceful mother used to like to wrap small gifts. And the net spit out lots of hits and confirmed: yes, tinker a small gift box that looks quite pretty – from the inside of a toilet paper roll, that works in no time!

Upcycling – making something new from disposable objects – I have discovered in recent years as a source of inspiration for crafting for me. For Christmas, you can make DIY Christmas gift tags from a toilet roll, a snowflake Advent calendar and a toilet roll stars. We made two different Advent calendars out of kitchen rolls this year – the Star of Bethlehem Advent calendar and a kitchen roll Advent calendar. On Abenteuer Freundschaft, there are crafting ideas for every season and occasion!

This Is What You Need

  • 1 toilet roll (or just the cardboard tube ;-))
  • Gift paper
  • All-purpose glue*
  • Scissors
