Need some last minute packaging for money and gift cards, or small toys or jewelry? These are quick and easy to whip up!
I always have some toilet paper tubes on hand for a variety of uses. For these gift boxes I just slapped on some paper and paint, fold in the ends once it a dry, and that’s it! Ready for gifting! I like to use these so tiny things don’t get lost inside a stocking.
For the gift envelopes, I just dig into my paper stash for some already painted paper. A medium to heavy weight paper works best. No deli paper on this one. I like to cut the end that will be a flap into a decorative shape. Then to make it durable, I coat it on both sides with matte, or gloss, medium. Once dry I stitch up the sides, add any other embellishments, and stick on velcro tabs to hold them closed. I recently noticed one of my daughters still using one as a card holder in her purse from last Christmas!
