Generally, I love to upcycle items into other things. I was looking at my empty paper towel tubes and that is when it came to me that I could do something with them.
I created a simple way to make one of these tubes look amazing and wrap up one of those awkward shaped gifts you can’t ever seem to figure out how to wrap!
Paper towel tube (cut to the length you need)
Once the tube is cut to the length needed, you will want to fold one size flat horizontally and secure closed with three staples. Fill the tube with whatever items you need to wrap. This could be thing such as action figures, candy, nail polish, etc).
Fold over the other end and secure closed with three staples. Use Washi Tape, glitter, construction paper, ribbon – whatever you would like – to cover the staples. The ideas are endless!!
I was really impressed at how well they look and who’d guess that they started out as paper towel tubes? What do you think? Do you like how they turned out enough to re-create them on your own?
