Toilet Paper Roll Gift Wrapping

The crafter's 3Rs = Recycle, Repurpose, Reuse. Sometimes this thought leads to hoarding issues. Why am I keeping all those empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls? Gift wrapping of course!

You Will Need

- Toilet Paper or Paper Towel Roll 
- Decorative Paper
-Washi Tape (optional)
- scissors, glue, double sided tape, stapler


Ready to roll?


Cut paper to fit over your roll with a little extra for overlap.My paper measures 6 x 6 inches.


Wrap paper around roll using double side tape to secure. Sides should extend over the roll.


Tuck in sides and glue down.


Squish side flat and staple close to edge.


Add your gift into the roll.


Squish flat open end in the opposite direction and staple to seal.


Hide stapled edge with washi tape or more decorative paper.


Finished piece will look like this.

but...use prettier paper and perhaps add some decoration.


The End.
