DIY Small Gift Box Tubes for the Holidays!

I love gift wrapping for the holidays! I really like wrapping things and not using gift bags unless I have to. However, sometimes you have really small things that are irregularly shaped (like jewelry in a small ziplock bag) that you need a good way to wrap. You can buy mini boxes, but I’d rather use something that I already have for free!

Lots of wrapping means you’ll have lots of these:

Just cut a section off about 2 inches longer than what you want to wrap. Alternatively, you could use a toilet paper roll.

Then, insert your gift. I like to wrap everything in tissue paper for extra unwrapping!

Then, lay the roll down on a section of paper just wider than the roll on either side. Tape the one end to the roll and roll it tightly and tape the other end.

Then, use your thumb to fold down the side piece and then fold the other side over it. Use a piece of tape to seal it off and then repeat on the other side.
