So, Mother's Day is coming up soon, and I've started working on some little gifts for the special women in my life, but I didn't quite know how to wrap them, they're tiny gifts... That's when I saw my trusty bag of toilet paper rolls, waiting to be turned into something fabulous, and came up with this:
That's right friends! These cute boxes are made out of TP rolls! Let's get to it.
What you'll need:
- TP roll
-some kind of paper to cover your box (I used some old tissue paper from a gift, and a napkin!)
Flatten your TP roll, and trace on both edges a curved line, like you see above.
Cut out on the line you just traced. Your roll will look like this.
Baad picture, sorry. But you get the idea, fold the edges you have just cut out, to the inside of the roll.
You will do that to all of them. It will look like this. Isn't that a cute shape?
Now go ahead and open your roll out again, cover it with glue and lay it on the paper you want to use. I like to crinkle up the paper to give it some texture, I think it looks cool! After that, go ahead and trim your paper to the shape of your little gift box.
Don't forget to embellish away! I tied a cute little bow in one, and I used a paper flower on the other, but you could add whatever you like! And they're perfect size for the little beaded watches I'm making... Shhhh.... don't tell the mothers! :)
