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!
Press both sides of a toilet roll together until the edges meet in the middle.
Place the toilet roll on the wrapping paper and cut a large enough piece to cover it completely
Tape the wrapping paper around the outside.
Cut off the protruding wrapping paper with scissors.
Fold the two ends of one side of the pasted toilet roll as pre-bent inward
Stow the gift in the of the toilet roll gift box.
Fold the last two ends of the pasted toilet roll inside.
Tie a bow with a gift ribbon, so that the gift can not fall out.
On a whim decorate with ribbon, glitter, etc.
In 5 minutes you’re done with the gift box tinkering!
