Upcycled DIY Pillow Boxes
Why buy mass-produced gift wrapping when you can spend a few minutes and no extra money to create a one-of-a-kind upcycled pillow box?
Just save a few cardboard tubes.
Then fold them in half, creasing the edges really well.
When you gently press one side down, it will show you where it naturally wants to bend. Crease that round line a little.
And then repeat on the other side, overlapping the edges.
Then flip it to the other end and do it again!
With creased edges, the flaps of the pillow box will stay in place.
Then decorate as much or as little as you like, adding some fibers around the middle to secure the flaps. You can customize the embellishments to the person who will receive the gift, or you can make them match any event or theme.
