Another small fun project for recycling! These are perfect for little gifts and a cute way to send your jewelry to customers… it not only give a nice shell of protection to the treasures you put inside, its cost free, customizable and keeps recycling on the mind <3
All you need are - toilet paper rolls - decor ( i used stamps) - Tape or glue
Step one: decorate your roll. I used some of my stamps, but don’t limit yourself to just that… you can use old paper, photographs, tissue paper, paint,sharpie and whatever else you have laying around to decorate. Mod podge and some pattered paper would be fun!
Step two: Once your roll is decorated to your liking, fold down the corners on one end, making it look like little cat ears. Make sure they fold over each other so there is no open gap, and tape down ( you can also glue the end down) * side note… if you dont like the look of regular tape, they sell something called washi tape? that comes in all sorts of amazing patterns!
-Step three: When you have some side sealed and taped down, wrap and place your item/treasures inside the box ( i wrapped up some earrings) and seal the other end, again making sure they fold over one another so there are no gaps.
- Step four… your done!
Again these are wonderful for gift giving and product packaging. Small, sturdy, cheap, recycled pill boxes…. you can use old paper towel rolls too! those are larger and can fit a bit more than TP rolls.
You’re not one for letting anything preventing you from getting the day’s work done. Car won’t start? You’ll take the bus (or call in one of your many favors). Feeling a little under the weather? Down a few pills and pack a box of tissues! Woke up late? Mentally beat yourself over the head as you pray to every deity you know that your boss won’t notice your tardiness and call you into his office to give you one of his famous lectures.
So when you wake up late on a beautiful autumn morning with a pounding headache, runny nose and the knowledge that your car battery died last night just as you pulled into the driveway and you own no jumper cables—you consider purchasing a one-way ticket to the Grand Canyon so you fling yourself off one of the many cliffs.
Except you don’t, because that would be a little too dramatic—even for you.
