A quick little gift box...

What can you do with a "tp" roll or a paper towel roll and some decorative paper?
You can make a cute box to hold a little gift or candies:
I used spray adhesive to adhere the paper and stitched one end of the "tp" roll closed. The top tube was slit open to expand it, to allow extra space to cover the other tube, then covered with paper:
I made a paper flower and adhered it to the large tube, and then tied a ribbon around the lid:

  9. Hi Patti,
    These are so cute. I would have never guessed they were toilet paper rolls. I was saving toilet paper rolls for awhile and have quite a few stored away. You have just inspired me to go dig them out!
    Have a great Wednesday.

  10. Very cute indeed! I knew I was saving those tp rolls for a reason. I thought of something similar, but not that detailed (I don't sew). Very crafty and inspiring. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes, Tammy
