You already know how much I love simple crafts. Today's project is all about Easter as I turned toilet paper rolls into little gift boxes:

toilet paper rolls
1. Apply two coats of acrylic paint to the toilet paper rolls. Let dry.
I tried out an eco-friendly acrylic paint by Eco Green Crafts for the first time.
It went on thick and was easy to use.
2. Cut book pages into 2 x 5 1/2" strips.
3. Fold one end of the toilet paper roll together. Push and fold down each side to close the end. Repeat on the opposite end of the roll. Do this for each toilet paper roll.
4. Wrap the book page strips around each toilet paper roll gift box and secure with Craft Glue Dots©.
I used 3 Craft Glue Dots© at each end of the book page strips.
Here's a close-up of the finished toilet paper roll gift boxes:
The book I used for this project was The Tale of Benjamin Bunny by Beatrix Potter.
