Recycled Art Project: Toilet Paper Roll Gift Boxes

I think I’m developing a real knack for making art with things I find around the house, all in an attempt to keep my little one occupied. So I made these Toilet Paper Roll Gift Boxes that are super cute for Mother’s Day or Teacher Appreciation Day.

How to Make Toilet Paper Roll Gift Boxes


  • toilet paper rolls
  • ribbons
  • stickers
  • wrapping paper
  • washi tape


Fold the toilet paper roll. The little ones may need your help doing this.

Fold both sides.


You can wrap the toilet paper rolls around.

Decorate with ribbon or stickers (or anything else you think makes it look pretty!)


You can out anything in it: a note or chocolates for example. (I like Hershey’s kisses).



Pin this for later!
