Simple, cute candy boxes from used (clean) cardboard TP rolls.

Toilet paper rolls are weirdly crafty items.
I used this project for Halloween one year and was happy with the outcome! The uses are endless. Halloween, baby showers, Easter, etc.
In general they're simple gift boxes.




You Will Need

Project Cost
Almost Nothing

  1. Step 1 1

    - paper, napkins, wrapping paper, paint.
    anything to cover the outside.
    - Scissors
    - Tape/ staples/ glue (I use tape for this project)
    - TP rolls
    - Wrapped candy, toys, etc.

  2. Step 2 2

    Make sure you measure the tube to see if your napkin/ wrapping paper scraps will fit the whole way around the tube and just an inch above the openings. Tape the beginning piece so it's easier to keep in place. Then wrap it all the way around. I forgot the picture, but you can cut the paper to make it fit into the openings better. Tape the edge paper to the inside of the tube. Tape the end.

  3. Step 3 3

    Better view of taped inside piece.

  4. Step 4 4

    Now do the "coin roll fold". Lower one side of the tube and overlap it equally with the other side. You can tape these down or keep them folded. They'll usually stay. After, put in toys, wrapped candy, anything really and repeat "coin roll fold" to other side.

  5. Step 5 5

    Done! Perfect, easy treat boxes for any occasion. Now send me some pictures of your versions!!!
