How to Make Your Own Festive Gift Boxes from Kitchen Roll Tubes - Craft Tutorial

Looking for a box for a small gift, such as jewellery, a pin badge, money, or gift card? Well, look no further! Just by making a few simple scores, you can transform a used kitchen roll tube that would otherwise go to waste into the cutest festive pillow gift box!

Watch here as we show you how. All you need to do is pick your favourite papers and try it for yourself. We used the fun Paper Addicts Happy Holidays papers for our pillow boxes and tied with a length of twine, they look super festive.

We created a video tutorial to show you just how easy these festive pillow boxes are to create. Find it here or click on the thumbnail below.

You Will Need:

  • Paper Addicts Happy Holidays 12” x 12” paper pad,
  • A Kitchen Roll Tube,
  • Dovecraft Little Red Robin Twine,
  • Double Sided Tape
