Today I'm going to share with you how to make a diy gift box for jewelry, or any other small item, out of a toilet paper roll. Yep, you heard that right.. a toilet paper roll!  And I promise you it is super easy.  It took me about 10 minutes to make and I couldn't be more obsessed with the end result.  A quick trip to Kmart and I was all set.  If you've been looking for creative ways to package items in your Etsy shop or just simply give a gift, then look no further!

Here's what you'll need:
Scott toilet paper (for the empty roll)
Decorative ribbon (for decorating)
Bow wire (for decorating)
Spray paint (for decorating)

Step 1:  Use your Scott tissue until the role is empty, then save the roll.  This is what you will be using to make the box.  I chose to spray paint mine gold, but you can paint, spray paint, decoupage, etc. to achieve your desired look.

Step 2:  First, fold one side of the roll into a U-shaped curve.  Next, fold the opposite side into the same U-shaped curve to enclose the end of the roll.  Place your jewelry or gift into the box and then fold the remaining side of the roll into a U-shaped curve again to close the box.

Step 3:  Decorate your box.  I chose to use ribbon and bow wire, but feel free to use your creativity here!
