I love being able to reuse things that people would normally consider trash. Call me a hoarder, but I really do get a thrill out of this. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a dig-in-your-trash type of gal. I only save items that I actually plan to use.
One thing I started doing this year around the holidays was hoard paper towel rolls, which dubbed as small gift boxes. A lot of people do this with empty toilet paper rolls, but I didn’t want to risk grossing anybody out, so I went with paper towels rolls instead.
Do this to both sides, and you’re done! To add an extra splash of color, I took wrapping paper scraps (those leftover pieces that are too small to wrap anything with) and taped it around the box. Then I tied a ribbon around it and attached a tag and candy cane. Simply cute!
