Cardboard Tube Gift Box

For small gifts that are difficult to wrap, you can use a cardboard tube as a gift box. You will find these tubes at the middle of rolls of toilet tissue, kitchen paper rolls, rolls of wrapping paper, and sometimes cooking foil and cling film.




  1. Choose your tube. Remember thick sturdy tubes will give better protection to your gift, but thinner flimsier ones are easier to work with.
  2. Cut a length of tube to fit your gift with a couple of inches extra at each end.
  3. Trim off any jagged bits.

  5. Squash it a little flatter so that it is now more oval than round then check your gift still fits.
  6. Press in on each side at one end.

  8. Insert the gift into the tube then press the sides in on the other end to enclose the gift.
  9. Cut a strip of gift wrap to fit the width of your box.
