Toilet paper rolls always make great elements of craft projects. Since they are made up of thicker materials, they are great for making any type of holders or boxes. This craft shows how toilet paper rolls can be used to create party favor boxes in a very easy process.
What you will need:
- Empty toilet paper rolls
- Colored papers
- Candy or small treats
From the colored papers, cut out a strip of paper that is a bit larger than the height of the toilet paper rolls.
Wrap the strip around the toilet paper roll and stick it in place with the glue.
Using your thumb, press on one point on one side of the edge of the paper roll.
Do the same to the point directly opposite to the previous one, on the same side of the paper roll.
This should create a closed, leaf shaped surface on one side of the tube.
Stick this closed surface in place with glue if so desired.
With one end closed off, fill the insides of the tube with party goodies like candy or other small treats.
Once filled with desired goodies, repeat step 3,4, and 5 on the open end of the tube.
For additional accessories you could tie a ribbon or washi tape around the completed box. You could even try attatching small tags or charms to the tied up ribbon.
And you are done! Small party favors that are made of recycled items and take less than 10 minutes to make! Since it is so easy to make you will end up making however many you need for the guests. Try using different colored paper or even patterned paper to show some variation!
