Making a Cardboard Tube Gift Box attosa Diamond Post Medal for All Time! 1,246 Posts January 30, 2017 I love making these cute little gift boxes because they use things you'd otherwise throw away, cardboard tubes and leftover gift wrap. Total Time: 20 minutes Yield: 1 gift box Supplies: cardboard tube from toilet paper or kitchen towels wrapping papers scraps scissors glue paintbrush, optional clothespin, optional ribbon
Steps: Trim your wrapping paper so it's just big enough to cover the cardboard tube.
Add very thin drops of glue (or brush on) onto tube and apply gift wrap.
After glue has dried, take one end of the tube, apply glue inside, then seal shut. Secure by holding it shut or using a clothespin. Let dry.
To make it a bit fancier, affix a scrap of contrasting gift wrapping paper over the first. Insert gift into finished cardboard tube then glue shut. Tie with ribbon.

But it's okay;) instead of just endlessly throwing them out what do you say we have some fun and spread some love?
